    "For the parent who called the teacher that complained about the school bitter, you need to realize that not everyone is going to have the same experience as you are having, yet they are STILL entitled to their opinion. I know for me personally, the opinion of a teacher who actually works at the school and has a day-to-day perspective on what goes on there is considerably more important to me than the opinion of ONE parent whose child is having no complaints and who probably just drops them off with a wave and a "Make good choices Sweetie!". Staff are usually nice to parents but treat kids differently and how my children are treated is important to me. Also the fact that half the graduating class is failing is VERY important to me as I don't want to set my own children up for failure in a school where attention is not given to the reasons why so many are failing. I also do not wish to send my children to a school where they have to be fearful of their principal and teachers,but instead are directed to focus on their education. We are coming back to Texas from Europe which has really excellent schools. I am so loathing putting them back in the Texas public school system again."

    "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."
