    "My son graduated from Sims 2yrs ago. This school has made me love Rockdale Cty schools. Although we relocated to AtlantA and I had to take him out of Rockdale cty but we are moving back and I hope Memorial Middle School give us the same results. Mr. Randolph is great with his students and Mr. Bragsdale (hope i spelled it right) worked one on one with my son and helped him improve his behavior problem...We love this school!!! All of the teachers are great!!!"

    "Sims Elementary School is an excellent school. The Administration and teachers led by Principal Allison Barber do an excellent job and go out of their way to make each and every child feel special. Coming from another school in Rockdale County, I find Sims to be a better situation for my children. The other school, which is a well sought after school in the county, seemed to only be interested in the achievement of the highest achievers in their school. I love the fact that Principal reminds EVERY child on a daily basis that they are special and that they can do whatever they want to do in life as long as they try their very hardest and be the best person that they can possibly be. The school is not as fancy as many others in the county, but one thing is for sure, the feeling of family and the level of teaching that the students receive far exceeds other schools that I have gone into in the county."

    "Haven't been in private school last year, my main concern was really only the size of the school. I love the teachers, the curriculum and the drive and enthusiasm of the principle, the faculty and the students. My son is in first grade & loves it! He's a little more advanced so after the first week of school, he was recommended to test for the gifted program. His teacher is able to challenge and accommodate his academic knowledge/level. Last year, he was completely bored in private school, having repeated everything he'd done the year prior in private pre-k. This year, he can't wait to go to school. My only wish is that the parents were slightly more involved. In a school of nearly 600 students, in the meetings and events I've attended very few parents have been there. I love love love SIms, the faculty and staff. I can't wait to see how the year progresses. I am thankful that we are a part of the Sims family!"

    "I am so glad that the school has improved their leadership team. The principal, Mrs. Gay, is a team builder with lots of buy in from the parents and teachers. I think things are headed in the right direction and like most things in life, you get out what you put in. Strict on discipline and I love it."

    "The thing I am looking most forward to is the day I can move my children out of this school. It used to be a wonderful school, but the administration seems almost anti-parent and very difficult to deal with. The teachers being constantly put under pressure to produce data has overshadowed what is most important, the education of our children. I know longer feel my kids are getting anything close to a quality education. There is a reason the Greatschools Rating drops each year."
