Wow! Simas is an amazing school, run by an amazing principal, Kristina Baldwin. As a parent I see the leadership pride that Simas has. They are positive, caring, encouraging, organized and professional, everyone from the office staff, cafeteria staff , teachers and yard duties. As a military parent, we have been at a lot of schools but Simas is by far a shining star when it comes to welcoming, informing and encouraging involvement and partnership between the families and school.

Simas Stars! A great school with great teachers. It is without a doubt that the school has involved parents, and a great learning atmosphere for kids. This is a school that stands on it own.

Principal Baldwin, teachers, and staff are amazing especially with dedication to celebrating the students with a monthly Star Pride event for not getting citation.

I am very impressed with simas. My son is a 2nd grader now with lots of health issues. The teachers and staff have made me feel comfortable by being aware of his 504 accomadations. I love the environment, atmosphere, and all the parents who help with all school activities. It truly feels like one big family. I highly recommend Simas!

We are extemely happy with Simas. The teachers (except for one that I am aware of) and staff are friendly & supportive of the students. We have a child who started at Simas in kindergarten in the Spanish Immersion Program.. He is going to be a 6th grader in the fall. When I received his SAT9 scores I thought there was a mistake..they were that good. I would definitely recommend this school and the Spanish Immersion Program.

I am a parent of three in which attend Simas school. I have to say the teacher are wonderful. I had four children attend but one moved on to Jr. High. I have to say I was blown away by her Sat 9 scores she was profient in Math and almost Advanced in English. This child is not a genesis, but Simas teacher care about the student and work very hard to make sure each student is working to the best of their ability.

My son is in Kindergarten this year at Simas Elementary and is in the Spanish Immersion Program, or the FLI program as they call it. We have been extremely happy with the school and our son's teacher. She is caring and compansionate and you can tell she really loves the kids and loves being a teacher! Our son is halfway through K and is reading in both Spanish and English! We are very impressed!
