This school is horrible do not go there. I went there for a year and during that year I had here science etcher three math teacher and a reading teacher who just sat on her butt all day and made us watch videos. We did not Learn nothing and most of the times the teachers were not there so we had a substitute. The subsitute was either the security guard or the security guard assistant.
This school has got to be the, saying as nicely as I can, most aggrivating school in the area. Honestly. They have the most smallest numbers of teachers PER GRADE with the most LARGEST number of wild students. Teachers calling their students "Little boy/girl, if you don't" and basically humiliating the students who make the smallest mistakes. Put your child in here if you want to ruin their school years.
Somerset Academy Middle is truly a blessing to the community! I am pleased with the academic growth of my child. The school is well ran, the teachers actually care and the administrators have an open door policy. My child is nowhere near perfect! But Somerset worked through all her faults and gave her the needed attention in reading and helped me with her behavior. Her last school, which was a public school, I won't name wouldn't take the time to see why she had issues. They would treat her like she was second class and wanted to suspend her for everything. Somersets environment was positive and helped us change my child to a student who now cares about her school work. I recommend this school to anyone. It's small setting and supportive staff is great. Somerset Middle is an A school again and I can see why! My child will be there until she graduates in 5 years.
Why anyone would attend this school is beyond me. Horrific bullying among students and even between teachers. Completely unqualified teachers. Students are forcefed FCAT the entire year. Terrible food with very small portions. All seated at desks doing busywork. In one year six teachers left DURING the school year. That's a big clue that this school is a joke.
