Welcome to Ivan G. Smith Elementary School

Danvers Public Schools Vision

Our school community is driven by our four core values of caring, quality, commitment and collaboration. We strive to translate these values into our daily activities and actions while we focus on our yearly goals that prioritize student engagement and social and emotional learning.

On behalf of the entire Smith School Staff, we would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! As we enter the hallways of the new Ivan G. Smith building, together we will experience amazement, pride, and a sense of community.

This year, the district’s focus and our focus will be around three major priorities: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Coherent Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment; Safety and Supportive Learning. We are looking forward to having a strong home and school partnership with our community to ensure a safe and successful school year.

We are honored and grateful to be part of the Smith School family. 

We are about to embark on an incredible journey together!
