    "If it wasn't for J. Spencer Smith School, I would have never achieved this far in life. I am an 8th grade student, in a private boarding school CT. I have came to Smith School in kindergarten and graduated in 5th grade. The Smith School has taught me respect, and compassion. There method of teaching anything, especially writing, is superb! The kids are all nice, and supportive of each other. The Smith School has allowed me to go to a private boarding school. When I become, an adult and have a kid, I would send my son/daughter to this school. I highly recommend this school,wait no I don't recommend it, I command it. - Jung Suk (John) Bae '2010 graduate"

    "Our experience with Smith has been outstanding. We have been in Tenafly for only 18 months now and even though a major reason for us moving to the area was the quality of the schools, one does not really know for sure until your children are enrolled and you experience it hands on. A Principal who is very detail oriented certainly helps to keep everyone's interests aligned. The program is broad and deep at the same time, with a concern not only to inform children, but also to form them, a very important aspect of early education and often left aside, as information only tends to be the main driver. I feel like all my 3 kids are in a place that will ultimately help them become better citizens, since 5 years of age."

    "Top notch school with great teachers who really take the time to work with the children. Parental involvement is high at this school. It seems all the kids do well here."

    "This is truly a great school acedemically, socially and environmentally. Many of the teachers have been teaching for quite sometime and really have their teaching techiques down. Parent's participation is at its highest. This school has acheive several high school; however, may not have been the highest but, I would prefer my children to be B+, -A students and well rounded. Being an A leaves little room for growth."
