Simpsonville Elementary History
"Simpsonville Elementary School at Morton Place is a neighborhood school working in partnership with committed parents, eager students and dedicated professionals striving to achieve success…nothing less."
Simpsonville Elementary School is a kindergarten through grade five public school. We moved into our new facility in August, 2003. Our new school is the result of combining Morton Elementary and Simpsonville Elementary in 2002-2003 and is located on the old Morton site. We lost a portion of our population in 2002 with the opening of the new Bell's Crossing Elementary. At the same time, Simpsonville Elementary and Morton Elementary merged.
Our new building houses 691 students and 48 instructional staff members. It is one of 50 elementary schools in the Greenville County School District. Simpsonville Elementary School at Morton Place is located in Simpsonville, South Carolina.
