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.

Simsbury High School offers a lot of great opportunities for all students ; whether it has to do with sports and music performing arts. They also offer a lot of world language classes with different levels and that is for academic classes as well. My experience at Simsbury High School was good, they offer a of different opportunities. But one thing I would change or make better is the lack of diversity and representation in the school (as in teachers who have different backgrounds).
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.
