Enrichment Activities

The Vincent Smith School attempts to include as many and as wide a variety of extracurricular and enrichment activities as possible to help promote self-esteem and positive social experiences.

Each student participates in 9th period clubs throughout the week. Students have a plethora of clubs from which to choose: Cooking, Yearbook, SAT/ACT Prep, Pottery, Yoga, Chess, Newspaper, Meditation, Music, Science, and Walking Club.  In addition, students contribute to the School and our community by holding fundraisers, such as their annual Coat Drive, Canned Food Drive and Toy Drive. 

Day field trips are scheduled throughout the School year. Spirit Week, Art show, Field Day, Talent Show, and student full-day workshops are among the activities that provide enrichment for our students. In addition, each year students participate in a community service program.

The Vincent Smith School uses the Six Pillars of Character as a framework for teaching our students positive and ethical values.  The Six Pillars of Character have been recognized and endorsed by the U. S. Senate and The President of The United States.  All students are expected to develop and live by the character traits of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship throughout their educational career at The Vincent Smith School.
