  • Welcome to James Simons School, member of the American Montessori Society!

    James Simons Elementary School enjoys a rich past of educating Charleston's boys and girls. Our school is proudly celebrating our Centenniel this year. James Simons was the first school in Charleston to desegregate in the 1960's. Seven years ago Maria Montessori's method was introduced and today we educate 3 year olds all the way through eighth grade.
