As a student at simsboro high honestly I'm proud to one day be able to tell someone that I graduated from simsboro. it's a small school but the teachers are great and though at times authorities can be strict I know that it is only because they want us to excel in life and in our future. Us students may gripe and complain but it's only because we would like to have a little more slack now and then. I will without a doubt be continuing my high-school years at simaboro high. We are simsboro!!!!

Simsboro High is a decent school. this school cares more about the color of your socks or the color of you belt you have on than your Grades or whether or not you go to college, i have been a student here since kindergarten, and i am a sophomore in high school and over the past 4 years this school has been going down hill at a fast pace. i will not be attending here next year.

Simsboro High School is a good school. As a staff member and former student, I can say (with all honesty) that most of the students strive to do the best they can and parents of our students are very involved in their childrens' education. I think that this school has come a long way, but like any school, it still can be better.

Horrible school to be honest. Hardly any opportunities for advancement or individualism. Looking for a school with Honors Courses or Advanced Placement so that your child will have a chance to get into a good college as well as have a weighted GPA? Get over it, they don't offer it. Hoping for a school with a good academic program? Also get over it, for all of last year they allowed a certain teacher that was hardly literate herself to teach a high school course. Extracurriculars are a joke if you aren't athletic. There are very few clubs to join, and the once or twice a month club days (for 30 minutes on a Wednesday) allows no time for an actual meeting to take place. The administration worries more about whether or not your Simsboro High School or Senior hoodie has a hood on it than if you are making good grades

In my opinion, This school is lost. There was at one time a school in this location, Now it is a Military Camp that feels their rules are set in stone and over power the views of the parents' of the children that attend as well as any comparison with surrounding schools. We do NOT have an Elementary. We have a High School with short people. And in all actuality the High School children receive more liberalness when it comes to being allowed to actually have their OWN mind! The Authority figures Demand respect yet are unable to give it in return to our children.

I believe this school could be better if they worry about the education and not the dress code all the time.

I have three (3)children currently enrolled at Simsboro H.S,and and (2) of them have been there since kindergarten. I am concerned totally with academics, but I enjoyed the fact that my children are involved in extra curricular activities. You, as a parent have to be involved in your child's life and that means drop-in's at the school and calling to check your child's progress. Do not sit and wait till the end of the year, and your child is failing beyond repair and you get angry at the teacher. No, you get angry at yourself for not following up on your child's work. All teachers are not the same,nor do they teach the same,but your main concern is your child and if there are any problems the Pricipal is there to intervene. Involvement is the key. I love the school and staff. Stop fussing and do something.

I believe Simsboro is a great school they are hands on. I feel all Louisiana schools are laxed when it comes to school safety but Simsboro is working on that.

I am a former student at Simsboro and I think this school is a good school. Both of my parents are teachers at the school and are great teachers! The teachers at the school are very friendly and they take their time to help the students.

This is our first year in a Louisiana school. My 2 children, elementary and middle school, enjoy attending this school. I feel the teachers are great and try everything they can to teach the children. They keep me well aware of my childrens progress and try to involve me as much as possible. This is very different from our previous school. I can see a great improvement in their grades as well as their attitudes. Keep up the great teaching.

No I do not like this school because it is a who you know school. This school is the worst school I've ever seen. . Teachers here get to make up their own rules on how things should be. They need new Elementary teachers.

Simsboro is a very good school. The administration and the teachers do a great job with the kids as well as trying to get the parents involved with what is going on at the school.
