I have been a parent at Simpson Elementary for 10 years! I have 2 students there now, and another who also attended a few years ago. This school is an EXCEPTIONAL school in every way!!! I'm also a teacher and have subbed in this school in many classrooms including connections and special ed. Simpson is an amazing place for students! The teachers are Simpson are top-notch, and all students are treated in a fair and consistent manner. The administration is incredible, and parents are allowed to give input into what type of teacher they think is best for their child.
