Somerset Academy Village Charter Middle School5

As someone working at Somerset as a teacher and principal for 15 years, I can attest to our organization's sound track record of academic success. For the 2012-2013 school year, Mr. Anthony Marucci and I are excited to be moving from Somerset Academy Miramar to Somerset Village K-8 to be the new administrative team. I see great potential in Somerset Village, and with the input and support of all stakeholders, look forward to building a school in which our city, county and community can take pride. A few things to look forward to include a technology-rich facility with a 1 to 1 student-computer ratio, Promethean Boards in every classroom and a brand-new, state of art media center with two additional computer labs. Instructionally, we have some phenomenally talented teachers and leadership support staff who've joined our team, and we have new software programs and materials for academic intervention and acceleration to meet each student's needs. I encourage youn to call our school and schedule an appointment to see how Somerset Village can be an excellent choice for your child. --Ms. Sadesky, Principal
The administration at this school leave me wanting to remove my child and I will at the end of the year. The principal talks up the school but there is no action where her mouth is. There are some improvements to the infrastructure: new a/c units, lap tops, security cameras but its all for show. Organized chaos everywhere! Low student achievement. Many of the teachers are mediocre. Poor nutrition in the horrible choices on the lunch menu almost everyday. Though the principal says it won't be tolerated you see students wearing those disgusting sagging pants. No discipline at all. The clubs are a joke. More baby sitting than learning going on. I could go on but why bother. Think twice before you choose this school. Very disappointing... :(
This school is failing horribly in many respects. There are no extracurricular activities for the students. The school was completely unprepared to take on a middle school. Teacher turnover is very high. Most classes have over 25 students for 1 teacher. Quality of education is extremely poor as well as any communication from the schools to parents. Facilities continue to deteriorate, as the building is use for other purposes and not just for teaching children. Do your research and speak to other parents before you consider this school!
