Academically, Simsbury High school is a great place to be. The administration really cares about grades and school ranking. Unfortunately, being a student here is honestly saddening. There is almost no sense of togetherness or community. The school is divided, the classes are divided. Students don't feel comfortable enough to be themselves. Instead of addressing mental health and the incredible amount of discrimination that goes on, administration makes more rules, restricting their students tenfold. If you aren't white, don't even bother succeeding here. You will always be an after thought.

Having moved cross country halfway through a school year, the school worked really hard to get me acclimated to my new school so I could succeed. The school offers a plethora of electives that allow students to truly explore their interests at a pre-collegiate level. It is a rigorous academic environment and students work hard to earn their grades. They are very proud of the high scores achieved on standardized testing. Like other high schools, there is room for improvement regarding inclusion and respect for differing opinions.
I think that the school is an excellent place to learn and prepare for college and beyond. The teachers are all readily available and eager to help students. I also
believe that the sports and academics are well balanced. By this I mean that our academic achievement does not hinder our sports achievement. However, I also believe that there is serious room for improvement. I feel like we lack diversity;however, I know the district is trying to add diversity and promote inclusion in our community. Another place for improvement would be our food choices. I am not sure if this is something state mandated to try and enforce good eating habits, but many of the options lack flavor.
