  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • The teachers in Ed Smith Elementary were always approachable, for homework help, and for personal guidance. I could almost wish to be back in elementary school and to go to Ed Smith if it wasn't in the city. (I can't bear to be in Syracuse anymore, but that's just because of how cramped everything is)
