    "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."

    "Fact: You will not find a better music program and department than Smyser Elementary on the Northwest side of Chicago for K-8, in either the private or public sector. As a parent, I've been proud to introduce my children to music lessons I'd otherwise never approach. Beyond the arts, their administration has always been welcoming and helpful. My children have consistently been challenged academically, and the rising scored of the school's report card are evident of the compassion of their educators. I am lucky to be able to have a neighborhood school like Smyser."

    "Smyser is a great school. The website is user-friendly and all information is updated including policy and homework. Teachers post homework on website along with other websites to help students with learning. Administration is very attentive and truly cares about their students. The school has a great music program and athletics. Smyser also has a great PTO. My children enjoy going to school everyday. I am thankful for that."

    "My two girls go to Smyser and love it. The pre-K teachers are amazing and a wonderful way to start your child's education. We feel so lucky to be able to live in the Chicago and have our children go to a public school that not only takes their job seriously but exceeds expectations. The principal and assistant principal are very accessible and kind. I am a member of the PTO and feel that the parents that are helping and giving of their time are doing an outstanding job. I wish there were more members but it's understandable that most families have parents working two jobs and just getting by. We are thrilled with the diversity of the students, parents, teachers, and the curriculum. We are very happy."
