St. Simon School is an excellent school with a strong community that supports the students and faculty and steps up whenever needed. The past year has been difficult for schools and parents but St. Simon was able to pivot to distance learning within days of the State shelter-in-place and then open back up as soon as could safely be done.Our children began at Little Saints Preschool where they taught foundational skills about learning and living all while having fun. They learn through activities that inspire creativity and curiosity. The teachers are warm and kind and truly care and love the children. Little Saints is the best place to give our children a strong start to their educational career.

My children transferred from the local public school into Saint Simon in the 4th and 5th Grades. My only regret was I didn't transfer them earlier. With the rigorous, yet manageable academics, the programs for social outreach, the continued development of character and morality of the students in the classrooms, we have been thoroughly satisfied with the school. They went on to Saint Francis High School with a strong foundation!!!
