Symonds school staff is highly dedicated, and there is a strong sense of community among the parents and teachers. Nonetheless, the school needs an increase in funding of about 20%. The salaries for teachers in NH are low, and the funding for supplies is minimal. Given the threadbare nature of the financial support, the staff puts in long hours, class sizes are small, and we parents are very lucky. Wish we could have continued the fifth grade language program, which just fell to the axe.

The education my children have received both academically and social is extremely excellent. The test scores may have been lower before, but due to the dedicated staff implementing quality changes, we have improved dramatically. I would recommend this school to any student.

I love the ongoing oppertunities to be an involved parrent. Symonds is absolutely the best school! My kids love the sincerely caring principal Mr. Kate and the teachers as well. A very supportive, family oriented school.

This is my grandsons first year here(1st grade). They made him feel comfortable, by having a special 'get to know the school, and meet your teacher' before school started for the year. He did not have a good experience last year, but this school, and teacher make my grandson feel comfortable going to school. They seem to be on top of things and act on them asap.

I think this school is great. They work with you and keep you informed about the school and your child.
