Founded in 1927, our school was given its name in 1932, at a special meeting held by the Fayetteville Graded School Trustees. In recognition of the splendid services rendered by Dr. Ezekiel Ezra Smith, an educator and statesman, the trustees unanimously voted to name the school for him. Thereafter, this school was officially designated E. E. Smith High School, trusting that its “standards would always be worthy of its namesake.”
In September of 1929, the school moved from Orange Street to the building on Campbell Avenue, which was known as Edward Evans Elementary School. With seven teachers, an enrollment of 42 boys and 162 girls, it stayed on Campbell Avenue until June of 1931. The school moved back to Orange Street in September of 1931 and stayed until January of 1940. On January 3, 1940, the school family moved into a new modern building on Washington Drive and remained until June 1954. On September 6, 1954, Smith moved to its present twenty-eight acre location on Seabrook Road.
