    "Do you want Case In Point for academics? All you have to do is look at first post, submitted by a former student: "Simpson School gets very poor in their extracurrier and discipline." The lowered expectations of the teachers would have given this "former simpson student" an A+ for spelling discipline correctly. This school used to be great... back when Nurje, Zeller, Corning, Dave, all of the good teachers were there. Even Ms. Basil. Now the neighborhood has gone to zhit, along with the administration."

    "This school is horrible. They allow bullying and choose not to do anything about it. This school is in a very rough demographic area. Some of the teachers have been good and decent and some haven't. It starts with the principal and assistant principal. A school cannot succeed if you don't have strong leadership. My kids have learned but I feel there can be a lot more put into place to help progress the kids and prepare them for life as well as their academic careers when starting high school and onto college. The only reason why I put 1 star for principal leadership and parent involvement is because it wouldn't let me submit it without it."

    "Too many teachers have been fired by a vindictive and control hungry principal. If the principal doesn't like a teacher, she will do everything she can to make it impossible for that teacher to do what they are suppose to be doing. Many great teachers have had to leave this school because they didn't teach to a test or they wouldn't fudge grades (if they don't fudge them they end up losing their job). As for the students, most students are revolving or are given grades they don't deserve. I don't blame the teachers, I blame the administration for the failings in this school, mainly the principal. There is more going on than the parents know."

    "I'm grading Simpson a 5 star because the teachers there do keep me updated on my children academic learning and their behavior at all times. as for the asst. principal Mr. Thomas and the principal Ms. Nicholas always willing to jump to our children aids and the parents aid on assisting to help to better our children future's and their education. personally I as a parent of 5. 3 of my children attend Simpson and 1 attend Westwood elem. has had numerous contact with both asst. principal and principal and they are so much love and very concern bout our children. I would recommend any parent to send their children here. all staff of Simpson elem. are terrifiic and very dedicated staff members"
