A Modern Educational Environment

For 60 years, Saint Simon Parish School has been providing an outstanding education, where students are guided by Catholic values, encouraged to discover and develop their talents, and inspired to lead lives of service. In September, the U.S. Secretary of Education recognized Saint Simon Parish School as a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School, one of only 23 private schools in the nation to receive the award that year.

We are so grateful to our community for this investment in our future to ensure that Saint Simon Parish School remains one of the top elementary schools in Silicon Valley.
