Simbi at School

Empower students to make a difference. 

Weekly Impact Report

Fluency & impact — right to your classroom.

With Simbi for School, educators can support their reading program—in class or at home. Students can read independently, guided by the personal Reading Journey, while educators can listen to students’ recorded reading, give feedback, send assignments, and track progress. 

Simbi helps teachers bring global stewardship into their classrooms, and helps students expand their horizons. They learn about people around the world and make a difference by reading.
