Simsbury High School Reviews

Overall the school was a quality experience for me. My classmates were kind and devoted to studying, while many of the teachers I had were very enthusiastic about helping students learn. The art department in particular encouraged me to follow my dreams of becoming a concept designer. The curriculum of classes are typically thorough and up to date, supplemented by passionate teachers who more often than not will stay after to help you learn. The school body tends to conflate good grades with good self worth, so the drive to succeed is incredibly high. However, the school is in a majority white neighborhood. There are diversity initiatives such as the ABC House to encourage a more colorful student population, but the majority demographic in the district is white.

I love this school. It is doing a great job of preparing me for college! If I were to change one thing, it would be the amount of school spirit present. Although we have pep rallies, etc., spirit days are not taken as seriously as I would hope.
Overall, my experience at Simsbury High School was extreamly positive. Coming in as a new student my freshman year, I had absolutley no trouble making friends and getting to know people. Everyone here is so accepting and willing to help each other.
My only problem with the high school is money management. As a result of the recent Connecticut budget-cuts, 15 teachers were laid off and the Chinese program took a huge hit. However, the school was still able to start a new program where they provide chromebooks to each and every student. Although the idea behind this program is great, most students already have better computers at home, and the chromebook system that we had implemented before worked just as well. This would be an incredible program if it were optional for those students who need programs or implemented in another less-fortunate school system- and many students agree.
