I will be graduating from Simeon this year 2011, and i must say i have learned and gained a lot. I am fully prepared for college this fall with the essentials to last a lifetime. In response to the parent above, yes we are noticed as a "sports" school but my peers have all learned more than other high schools in that community including Hirsch. I myself am apart of an sport team and they push me to the limit but further on the academic side. We understand that education is the key to success and take it seriously. Therefore I am proud to be a wolverine at Simeon and attend the Home of Tomorrow's Leaders.
