Somers Elementary School is outstanding! Teachers encourage creativity and deeper thinking. Reading is a huge focus (as it should be!) Students who are working above the class can participate in a gifted class starting in 3rd grade. Students who are falling behind get extra help as well. Teachers are caring and are concerned with the progress of their students. They are also available to talk. We are so thankful to have chosen a great school system!

Disappointing in many ways. Certain second and third grade teachers who have spent their entire careers here (and appear beyond burned out) should move on. Very cookie cutter - lacking in creativity - all focused on cmt scores. "Focus on reading" translates into an hour and a half of independent reading for 8 year olds (plenty of time for the teacher to do her own work) Punitive and arbitrary in disciplinary processes. Music and art are once weekly but good. Campus is nice. Principal retiring; outcome will likely be neutral.

As parents, we see the students work every day and are able to be in contact with the teachers each day as well. They do not spend too much time on any given subject, so the breadth of teaching is wide.

Excellent school, teachers are focused on the children and learning. Language is started in 1st grade, and reading is a main focus.

This school is a very tough school for young children and pushes the envelope for statistics results. There are 2 principals, why I don't know, but one doesn't seem to know what the other is doing so it can be a problem. The teachers are first rate though, but as far as nurturing your child, this is not the school for you. This school tries to produce little 'geniuses' and the homework volume is incredible.
