Simmons Elementary is an amazing school! We have had a child in the school for the past 7 years and I feel so lucky to say that we have 5 more to go before my youngest "graduates". My kids have received a quality education from amazing teachers. On top of the academics the school has a warm welcoming environment. I'm amazed at how the principal, Mrs Kanter, knows every child's name at a school of this size! As a parent I have always felt that I can contact both teachers and administration and receive answers, reassurance, etc. about any of my questions or concerns. The school also offers a lot of great family activities through their active Home and School Association. Ice Cream Social, Spring Fair, Movie Nights, 5K, Talent Shows, Science- Math and Literacy Nights- the list goes on and on. Simmons is a big elementary school with the feel of a small neighborhood school- everyone knows your name :)

This school is more concerned about their rating than they are about the children. Issues are swept under the table and ignored so they don't have to report them. We moved soley to get out of this school district. If you care about your child's well being you should NOT send them to Simmons.

To say it straight, I hated simmons. The classes are way too verly complicated, I don't really understand WHY we have a pool and the teachers turn a blind eye to bullying.

Simmons is fantastic. A private school education and environment without the tuition. The principal is very involved and all teachers are fantastic. I have 2 boys in the school, both are doing very well socially and academically and the teachers are very involved in their success.

Very pleased with Simmons. Articulate Principal. Excellent teachers. Very engaged HSA - has some new blood these days. Size of the school has not been a concern - still has a small feel and the kids adapt. They seem more confident as a result, but the family make-up in the school's footprint is changing and the school will need to show it is keeping up in order to maintain its vibrancy.

This is my son's first year at Simmons. His teacher is excellent - takes no nonsense, but very loving. I have watched him mature over the year, observed his reading skills greatly improving and he has discovered a love for math. The school has no tolerance for bullying and seems to go outof the way to teach mutual respect.

Our child attended Limekiln Simmons for Kind. and is currently at Simmons Elementary for 1st Gr. Parental involvement is fantastic. Opportunity for involvement is overwhelming. Although this is a large school, it has a small school feeling. Our teachers have been wonderful, attentive and thoughful. If you are looking in the Hatboro Horsham/Philadelphia subbarb's area you can't go wrong with Simmons.
