Scholars

In addition to their academic and other talents, Simsbury ABC students are chosen for their maturity, personality, and leadership potential.  Much is expected of students in the Simsbury ABC Program such as following the rules of the program, contributing to the house and maintaining high academic standards.   Students also strive to be active members of the Simsbury community by participating in sports, music and theater programs, school clubs and community service. 
 
Administrators, counselors and teachers at Simsbury High School acknowledge the positive impact of ABC students.  All staff, faculty and students benefit from interacting with individuals from diverse backgrounds and all are better prepared for an increasingly multi-ethnic and multicultural society.
