Welcome to E.D. Smith Elementary School

About Us

Smith Elementary is home to students in grades 1 - 6 at Oakwood Schools, in addition to Oakwood Preschool. With approximately 400 students enrolled, faculty and staff are dedicated to offering each individual student a world-class education. 

Smith Elementary offers a wide-range of educational experiences, including a rich arts, music, choir and orchestra programs. Our students often step outside of the classrooms to enrich their learning, whether that's in our community garden or at nearby parks and streams. We promote building healthy habits and support student wellness through our 3 R's - Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Build Relationships.

We encourage you to join us in building long-lasting learning experience for our students!

A Message from the Principal

The 2024-2025 school year will be my second as the principal of Smith. I am still in awe of the fantastic parent and community support for our elementary school. I truly believe we are an exceptional place of learning which is attributed to our innovative staff members and amazing students.  

At Smith we are committed to ensuring each child is growing socially, emotionally, and academically. We also take great care and consideration in providing a learning environment that is safe and secure for all. 

We truly celebrate the arts and the unique gift of outdoor learning at our local parks that are within walking distance. Our staff understands the importance of educating the whole child and knows the extraordinary experiences we provide our students will help them grow into the very best version of themselves. Thank you for trusting our team with this opportunity. 

We genuinely value our community support and hope families will consider joining our PTO. You are an equal partner in your child's success, and we love having you in the building to partake in and enrich the learning environment. 

In closing, I know the 2024-2025 school year will be one to remember and I look forward to all the memories we will make together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns as we partner together in your child’s educational experiences.
