    "Smyser Elementary School is a fantastic neighborhood school with an excellent principal, faculty, and staff. Smyser has received the highest rating that CPS has to offer (1+). The curriculum is rigorous and extra-curricular activities are plentiful. This school is the hidden gem."

    "I as a concerned mom thinks that smyser has alot to work on. Let's begin with the principal he lacks leadership and doesn't seem to show any concerns at all whatsoever when it comes to our children. What I personally experienced at smyser could have been better handled. Nothing at all was done when my childrens issues were addressed. 6th grade is a bridge year understable,now these kids should not be in fear or scared to go to school but have fun, feel comfortable and want to attend class.I believe that the smyser is overrated. My kids feel good want to go to school and are thriving at their new school. Parents tend not to speak up as they should I myself could not. If we teach our kids to speak up and speak out you as well (parents should do as well."

    "The expectations for our students are high. The teachers are excellent at academics. Discipline should be more consistent."

    "My children's school is outstanding! The teachers are well qualified, the principal Mr. Travlos is professional, kind, and approachable. The school makes my children feel safe and nurtured. My children are learning Spanish, and we have a wonderful Art teacher Ms. Lee. Smyser aslo has a reputable music department. The only thing Smyer needs is a permanent addition, as many children live in the district."

    "Smyser is a great school. My child can be on the honor roll if she tries. The only thing is she has to like the teacher if the teacher doesnt yell she is fine. The only problem I have with smyser is no air conditioning for these kids.my child never liked a school with uniforms but if you ask her now if she wants a uniform or no uniform she will say uniform. All in all I like smyser."
