Smith Academy, a combination junior and senior high, is a small public school in Hatfield, Massachusetts. It is well known in the area for being one of the smallest schools in the region, and one of the last non-regionalized schools.


The school opened in December 1872, funded by a $75,000 bequest from Sophia Smith.[3]



Extracurricular activities[edit]

The school has an intense rivalry with neighboring small school Hopkins Academy, located across the Connecticut River in Hadley. The Falcons also have a rich athletic history, including state basketball championships in 1990 and 1992, while consistently being one of the smallest public schools in Massachusetts.
