R E Simpson School Ratings & Reviews

March 17, 2017 Submitted by a teacher
Something truly wicked has happened in the entire Alhambra School District over the past five to seven years. The administrators' view from the top down began to shift. We were a nationally renown district and the overwhelming majority of our parents and children were happy. As a former Coach and teacher at a few schools in the district, it truly saddens me to see the depths to which the Alhambra School District has plummeted. I don't know why I'm not disgruntled, because I was one of the many teachers who was unjustly fired. In my case, it was to balance the budget. They used the new teacher evaluation tool to label me "Ineffective". Of course, in my current district I am labeled "HiGHLY EFFECTIVE" with the same REIL evaluation instrument. I put so much of my blood sweat and tears into this district and I still love it. But I think the district needs to open up to all that they've destroyed from the smallest to the greatest one and genuinely apologize and repair relationships where possible. I've met some of the most talented teachers and students Ive ever known in Alhambra. So to see test scores this low throughout the district makes it look more like a CURSE. I implore You, make amends, Alhambra, make amends. 602-670-1966.

I have two daughters that go to Simpson and I can't find anything positive to say about this school! This school is horrible! Some teachers are great and some are not. The whole system is screwed up. They focus more on what the kids are wearing then on how they are learning. I would NEVER recommend anyone to put there kids in that school

As a former teacher at Simpson, I can honestly say that the staff was top-notch several years ago. Considering there has been such an incredible turn over in staff members, I am not familiar with the current staff and cannot comment on their performance. As for the earlier poster, he is trying to keep his job by posting a positive comment about the principal. I hard as I tried to find something positive to say about the administrator, I could not. Like her husband, her gestapo ways are not conducive to an educational facility. The reason I am a former employee is because I refused to be harassed and bullied by Ms. Nicholas. Yes, I am certain there were some that needed to be fired for specific reasons but when more that half of the staff willingly leaves over the past 7 years, one needs to look at administration. As far as being negative, yes I had become a negative person under her regime. Now that I have left the district, I am back to my happy self. Leaving that negative, controlling, self-depleting, high stress atmosphere was my best career move ever. I am a happier and healthier person today.

My son has bee going to Simpson the last 2 yrs. There were issue with a teacher the first year. But I went in and spoke with the assistant principal and it was handled. This year my son is doing so great. I do not see teachers fudging grades. My son is in Honors English and was getting a D. The teacher was in contact with me. Since then my son (not the teachers) has improved his grades. The teachers are amazing and so helpful. If I need to speak with them I can get ahold of them right away. This school has been wonderful for my son. He has improved so much since he has been at Simpson.
