    "We moved into the Smithson Valley school district a year ago and at first the distance to school and our home seemed overwhelming since the drive is close to 30 minutes. Now it's second nature. My kids are in their second year at SV and love it! Initially, the transition to a new school is hard only because change is tough to deal with but it took my kids about a few days to feel comfortable at their new environment. SV has welcomed my children with open arms and if you ask them if they would be given a choice to move back to their previous school, their answer would be 100% NO!"

    "While by no means a terrible school, I would not consider it one of the best. As a current senior at Smithson Valley High School, I must admit that, while providing generally secure environment, much of the teachers' performances are inconsistent and uninvolved at best; while there are several advanced placement instructors whom try to offer the student quality education and enrich their minds, several others rely merely on handouts and provide limited assistance in the classroom, particularly those teaching regular courses. As has been constantly reiterated by several commenters throughout these reviews, the school does indeed have an excessive focus on athletics and dedicates less time to other activities that may potentially interest the student. Several extracurricular activities are in fact lacking as the school seems to struggle financially and more emphasis is placed on the campus' football team, limiting the surfacing of other activities for the student body. Much of the school is rather cliquish and close-knit as well, comprised mostly of students whom have known each other for several long years and seem unwelcoming of newcomers who can't seem to merge with the group."

    "We recently moved here. When I registered my child, everyone seemed helpful and friendly. When my child started school, he received no guidance, no support and went through the first few days being ignored by students and staff. He didn't even eat due to how uncomfortable he felt. I have called the counselor multiple times and left messages, but she hasn't returned my calls. My son doesn't want to finish the year here. I am looking into other options or may consider homeschool. This school does not welcome newcomers."

    "Quality of teachers very inconsistent. Many teachers rely way to heavily on handouts. Extremely clickish. Low student engagement."
