My experience at Simmons Junior Senior High School is sometimes bearable. It has it good and bad days. I like how they get other kids who flunked an opportunity to catch up on their work, to be in their right grade. It's a lot of things I like about my school , for instance how we the only school in the delta who made history in football by having 3 state championship rings and going to state 4 times. And also how we a little school and town and we still know how to have fun. I could go on and on about the things I like about my school, but it is certain stuff I would change. For instance, how we can't wear jackets with hoodies or hoodies because of mass shootings and also how in morning and when its time to get out school how the gates be close stopping traffic to get to class and to the buses to go home, allow some kids to walk all the way around to get class. Having the gates closed is a fire hazard.

My experience at Simmons High School has been somewhat good. It’s where i grew up so of course I love my school! Simmons High is very great in sport & academics as well. Being here these past years has also been challenging... The administration staff is excellent ! They’re always willing to work with you about your grades or any other needs or concerns. Students are always first here at Simmons High School!
Hi,

I've been a student here at Simmons High for 12 years. Every since I've been here the teachers are always meticulous and ready to work. This school has very good teachers and students that are willing to learn and receive the information you're giving them. The only thing I would change about Simmons High is the food.
