Smith Middle Closed to New Students

  • Due to extreme overcrowding, Smith Middle School is closed to new students

    The Board of Education voted to close Smith Middle to students enrolled after July 18, 2019. New students enrolled after July 18, 2019 will be reassigned to other schools as outlined in Option #6 on the agenda abstract.

    No neighborhoods with current Smith students will be reassigned. The new development at Carraway Village, which had no Smith students on July 18, was reassigned to Estes Hills Elementary, Phillips Middle, and East Chapel Hill High.

    Voluntary transfers out of Smith are available.
