My kids absolutely love(d) Simonds. The teachers are caring and attentive, and the administration is willing to address any problems that arise and try to resolve them hands-on. The introduction of common core standards is a new change that the teachers and staff are doing their best to embrace for the kids. Overall, I am very happy with the school.
We love Simonds! The staff, the principal, the other parents and the students are wonderful, smart, and creative. We are beyond delighted with the school and are so happy our children can be a part of something so special. Highly recommend Simonds!
We also transferred here and WOW we are extremely pleased with what we have found here. My child transitioned here easily and loves her new school and its offerings, especially that's she's learning keyboard and has a fabulous teacher. We look forward to our years here and being involved. Go Simonds!
As a transfer parent we love this school. The kids are enjoying the teachers and activities. Great principal and staff.
My child loving going to school here and the staff is excellent. They are always willing to listen and address any concerns I have.
There is a sense of community when you walk on the school grounds. Kids are happy, they feel safe and the education is fabulous!
It feels like family.... Teachers are great. Simonds has a wonderful principal and I feel that my kids are so safe there.
The teachers, staff and principle CARE about my kids. They work with the students that need help and 'push' the ones that can do more. I love Simonds!
We have a fourth grader at Simonds who started there as a kindergartner. As we've described our fantastic experiences with Simonds teachers, parents and students over the years, we're always asked - is Simonds a private school? (which of course it is not) We're proud that the educational standards, the school environment and the parent involvement all combine to delivery a terrific eco-system for education and growth for our children.
This school is excellent on many levels. My son is in KG and has enjoyed his first year of school tremendously. I have many friends with older children attending Simonds and they all rave about it. Lot's of parent participation which continues to make a great difference in this school. We contemplated a private local school and know we made the best decision with Simonds as the school of choice.
Previous principal did not keep up with competitive environment around her. The prinicipal and teachers need to follow-through.
Simonds is an example of a public school that works, because we all work together for the benefit of the children. The children are well behaved, nice and smart and the teachers have not forgotten common sense. Their down to earth, straight-forwarded approach is refreshing in today's world of double-talk. They have high expectations for quality work and also bring a lot of creativity into the classroom. We are so grateful that we live in this neighborhood with this wonderful school!
