    "I'm currently attending Smithsburg as a sophomore and I can say it is a great school. The teachers are very helpful and mostly everyone is nice. Smithsburg is a primarily white school which is difficult when you're Hispanic in honors classes and you're the only person of color in the room. In the first month or two you will probably know 90% of the students even if you don't join a sport. Sports are very important to SHS (mainly football) and the student section is absolutely insane(in a good school spirit way). Even for someone who doesn't partake in sports, I really enjoy the pep-rallies and going to events. They also offer more extracurricular activities (Drama Club, Art Club, FFA, etc). There's something for everyone."

    "I attended Smithsburg as a student in my freshman and sophomore year. All in all, it wasn't bad. There's no doubt smithsburg is a big agricultural, predominately white school, and as an african american I have felt overwhelmed at times (zero diversity here, I know my graduating class had about..4 or 5 black men, I can't even recall any other races). I had no trouble fitting in socially though, and at the end of the day school is what you make of it. The teachers were very nice, and I feel like Smithsburg definitely prepared me for college, even in the beginning 2 years i attended. To anyone who didn't attend the middle schools: I attended Smithsburg after moving from the midwest. It took a little adjusting, but I did find a nice group of friends from joining sports. To anyone new to Washington County schools (especially Smithsburg), EVERYONE has grown up with each other. Worth noting. Small side note: I know there has been a new principal/VP since I've left smithsburg, but I have NEVER seen the principal before. I didn't even know what he looked like. Don't know if that's good or bad, but definitely worth noting. The Vice Principal was always there, and he was very approachable."

    "I was very pleased with this school. The teachers I had were great. The administration, including the current principal and guidance counselors need to be done away with. They are absent and seems disinterested. I was struggling in a class and asked a counselor to help, she flat out refused, telling me to 'deal with it.' I was offended, complained to the principal, who did nothing, and left that school shortly thereafter."
