Success through Honor

Honor is at the heart of all we do at Sgt. Smith Middle School’s Academy for Broadcasting and Health Science, in the heart of Citrus Park. Our unique Multimedia and Broadcasting classes—in our state-of-the-art facility—honor our students’ creativity, while our Health Science program honors their interest in science and research. Our Scholar Quest offerings include high school credit courses to challenge students. Through Electives, our students sample a range of exciting courses—engaging in Robotics, Sports Science, Art, Music, AVID college readiness and more—then pursue the options that best spark their interests. Students can earn Microsoft Industry Certifications, connect in our sports teams and clubs and join our unique winter guard/flag team. Our Sixth Grade Structure helps students feel at home in their new learning environment. Drawing strength from our diversity, Sgt. Smith Middle School students and staff proudly abide by our Honor Code: "Honor our time, yourself and others.”
