C.B. Smith Primary School is an Illinois Spotlight School with a proud tradition of service to the students of Pekin. Our enrollment is approximately 335 students in grades K-3. We work very hard each and every day to help students become the best readers, writers, mathematicians, and all-around thinkers they can be! The staff of C.B. Smith is highly committed to professional development. The majority of our teachers have master's degrees, and many more are trained in Reading Recovery or in the methods of the Teacher's College Writer's Workshop. Our school library's circulation is among the largest of the primary schools in the area, and each classroom uses Smart Board technology to engage students.
Teachers from schools around the state visit C.B. Smith to learn more about how our comprehensive literacy system meets the needs of our students. We invite you to visit as well. We look forward to seeing you!
