Somerset gives off a great small community feeling, but its does not have all the same amenities you might find at a regular high school (gym, auditorium). Some of the teachers are a little young and inexperienced.
My child has been at Somerset for years and loves the community feeling. The staff works so hard to ensure that the students are successful. The teachers and administrators truly care. The school is becoming better each year!
The quality of the academic programs available are, at best,acceptable. Although, to be fair, since Principal Montero took over, we have seen a slow improvement in the extracurricular activities as well as music and sports programs. The school still lacks stronger language and reading programs. Since this school is still in its infancy stage, parents can expect alot of disorganization and a lack of structure.
My son attends this school and I see a great improvemnent in his reading and math skills. I would definitely recommend this charter school.
I've lived in broward county for 30yrs,and my chilrens'ages range from 35yo to 16yo. I have never expierienced such a high quality of commitment and availibility of parent and teacher involvement and cooperation.
The best teachers have gone (McCann, Swing, Garays, Machado, Bacallao, Slutzkys, Curtis). What does this say about how they feel about their own school they taught for? When the best leave, it's time to reconsider new options for your child which is the best to you.
High school is overcrowded, teacher turnover is high, classroom sizes are very large. I would not recommend this school for 9th grade and up.
