    "Personally it can be ok but I just thinki the people in the school talk down on people too much and thats what drives students away and its ok sometimes but time goes slow."

    "SMHS has some good teachers but it doesn't seem that they are well-supported or is the administration (especially the principal) very concerned about education. This is especially disappointing for a 'college-town' where the high school could be taking full advantage of having a university connection with a well establish College of Education at Texas State University. There is an overemphasis on teaching for TAKS test performance and also with athletics (i.e., the football program). While one might hope that a new high school facility scheduled to open next year will mean better education, I have my doubts considering the misplaced focus of the current administration and the lack of respect toward students and parents. Parents who believe in public education ought to consider other options for their children's education if the mission/vision for the new high school does not change substantially. SMHS does little to prepare its best students!"

    "Good school considering how big it is; large population of low income students makes it difficult for students who are serious about their education. Teachers are responsive and most strive for quality. School is hampered by lack of funding for the arts and there is a good band but no orchestra program."

    "SMHS, although far from 'perfect', worked with us on meeting the needs of our children. If your child needs to be challenged, take advantage of the AP courses and exams, Credit-By-Exams, Dual Enrollment with ACC (almost free!) and TxState classes. Our sons were able to begin college as juniors upon graduation. It would be wonderful if all AP students were serious about their classes. Better results would be obtained. Extracurricular activities are readily available to the students, and were a huge part of our sons' education and life experience. Band, Debate, Student Council, Bus. Prof of America, FBLA, NHS...all were great experiences. One of the most frustrating things about SMHS was trying to get parental involvement going through PTSO, PTSA. I currently attend Booster meetings in order to try to recruit more parents, students and teachers into PTSA. Everyone is busy, and I suppose they think HS will take care of itself."
