I am so happy here at Somerset. The teachers really care and the principal, Dr Kaye is outstanding. There is zero tolerance for bullies and the students MUST abide by this policy as well as a strict code of conduct, or else they receive a referral. Three referrals and you are not invited back to the school. That's a very good thing! This is a Broward county public school, but its also a charter school which means any one can addend, but there is a lottery. and they require parent involvement, which I think is great. It is a small school and goes to grade 8, and a high school is in the future. Best school around by far.
THIS IS OUR FIRST YEAR AT SOMERSET PINES AND WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH THE STAFF AND PRINCIPAL! MY DAUGHTER IS EXCELLING ACADEMICALLY THANKS TO HER TEACHER'S PASSION FOR TEACHING AND GREAT SKILLS. THE PRINCIPAL IS VERY APPROACHABLE AND PROFESSIONAL.
My step-grandson, Tristan, will be attending Somerset/Pompano this year as a first grader. I attended the open house last night and was very impressed with the principal and Ms. Norland, my grandson's first grade teacher. My grandson attended Pompano Beach Elementary School last year and had a very good year. He was voted "most enthusiastic" pupil in his class. However, it was a little scary for him at first as it is a big school and was a big change from his pre-school environment. I think switching to Somerset, with its smaller classes and excellent staff, will prove to be an excellent decision.
We moved down from up north and had a bad experience at the first school we put our children in. When Somerset opened up we figured it could not be any worse and we would not have to pay to get a second rate education for our children. I am so pleased with our decision to put them in somerset. All of the teachers are incredible. The teachers have gone above and beyond to make sure they have worked up to their ability. The principal knows every childs name and who they are. I could not have asked for a better school or staff. Thank you for inspiring mychildren to want to learn again.
My kids are attending Somerset Pines since last year, and I have to say that this year have been better than last one, so keep it up Bulldogs!!!! What I love the most is that it is a small school and this makes it special in all ways. Excellent!!!!
I couldn't be happier with this school...so far so good!!!!! It has the family environment that every kids need, and the security every parent ask for. Thank you to all the teachers, parents and staff at Somerset Pines Academy.
