Open Quote Our granddaughter has been there since K4 and has always had fabulous teachers. I am so thankful to this school. I am a firm believers that the way children are treated in elementary has a huge effect on the rest of the school years. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is great! For the most part.The assistant principal is not exactly welcoming or friendly. The door has been slammed in my daughter's face on many occasions, making my husband have to pull around to park, and check her in tardy. 5 tardies, and they punish the children with detention for something out of their control. My child has had 2 excellent teachers, and 2 not so hot ones. Honestly, if we could switch schools, we would. At the end of the year the teachers play "dodge ball" and get out their aggression by nailing the children with the balls. My daughter, and several others came home crying. If not for the administration and some of their ridiculous rules, I would give 5 stars. If you have a choice, please by all means choose another school in the district. This is elementary school. Not a prison!! Close Quote

Open Quote Simpsonville Elementary has great teacher morale. The principal knows all the kids and the kids love her. PTA is very active. SES has great "extra" programs like, Chorus, Garden Club, Skippers (jump rope) Club, Safety Patrol, Morning News Show, and Spanish Club. This is a great school that feels like a big supportive family. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
