Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

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.
