Welcome to SMK8

SMK8 is a Reward School!
First, we would like to thank you for visiting our website. We hope that our parents and community find our school to be a pleasant and heartwarming experience. In preparation for a much anticipated school year, faculty, staff, and administration have been dedicating long hours of training in workshops, diligently working in classrooms, and busily developing lessons that will prepare our students with skills needed for success. We strive to provide a safe, secure, and positive atmosphere conducive to learning by showing pride in ourselves, each other, and our school. Through the skills of optimism, respect, commitment, and excellence, we are determined to be the best that we can be. We encourage you to visit our campus at anytime.
