BOSTON (September 2, 2008) — Simmons College in Boston has been named one of the nation's "great schools for education majors" by Princeton Review.
Simmons was one of only 57 colleges in the nation chosen for the recognition, from more than 1,000 undergraduate schools from which data was collected. Princeton Review recently published the list of "great schools for education majors" in the print edition of its 2009 "Best 368 Colleges."
Princeton Review editors said they compiled the list by looking at institutional data, consulting with the National College Counselor Advisory Panel, and considering recommendations from guidance counselors, college admission counselors, and other education experts from around the country.
Simmons-prepared teachers consistently score in the top echelon on the Massachusetts licensure exam (99th percentile), and nearly 100 percent of its general education and special education students secure teaching positions within three months of graduation.
The Simmons education program offers undergraduate programs in general education and special education; a Master of Arts in Teaching for teaching at the elementary, middle and high school levels; master's and doctoral programs in Applied Behavioral Analysis with a focus on autism; Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language; an Urban Elementary Education Program for training and support for beginning urban teachers; and an Educational Leadership program for educators who want to pursue a career as a school administrator.
