All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

What a great school this is. I am very impressed with the way they run this school and participate in PBIS. They also have a zero tolerance for bullying. My son loves school again (finally) and the environment, teachers, and administrators are to be thanked for it. This school works together with parents to make sure that the children are excelling and that there is open communication between parent and school. I can't say enough great things about this school. My son, and I, are looking forward to 2 more yrs at SMS. Nice job SMS and thank you for all you do for my son as well as all the children who attend SMS...

SMS has undergone many changes in the past few years. It is a very nurturing, caring environment for students and staff. The teachers are exceptional. It was chosen by the New England League of Middle Schools as a "Spotlight" school - using best practices to create a culture and climate supporting learning.

My two children had positive experiences at this school. They had caring teachers who challenged them . They enjoyed their years there.

My daughter attended Somersworth Middle School. She had many great teachers and one not so great, but overall I was very happy with her experience. The new principle seems to really care about the school and the city.

I feel that this school is a great school. It is really too bad that most parents feel the need to post their negative experiences with this school. SMS was recently awarded The New England League of Middle Schools Spotlight Award for its record of powerful learning for young adolescents and its consistent observance of middle school best practices. I believe that most of the issues people have come down to is parenting. Most parents,it seems, want the schools to raise their children instead of taking responsibility for themselves. Somersworth is not a rich city and with that you will have differences amongst people. Parents need to take some responsibility in their child's' growth. Talk to your children and help them learn when at home too! Review their homework with them when they are done and do some parenting. Somersworth is a great school with a positive direction for students.

My children have both had a wonderful experience at Somersworth Middle School. The staff is very caring, and they have been challenged academically. SMS is a great school and community.

The staff at this school has No ability to teach children. If you plan on moving to this area I'd seek a different school system.Compare this school ( Middle School ) to any other NH school and see the very low rating . 2 .

The Somersworth School Board needs to do a complete and in-depth review of the Middle Schools Special Education Department. Some Para-professionals are doing most of the work without guidance from some Special Education teachers. The children are suffering and will be losing a year of education if this persists.

Dangerous, completely out of control, and no one is taking responsibility. Shameful!

I have had two children graduate from Somersworth High School, one that will graduate in 2004, and one that will be going there next year (2004). I graduated from there in 1979. I believe that the school has highly motivated my children to be successful in life. They had alot of the same teachers that I had which proves to me and others that the teachers of Somersworth High School are certainly dedicated to their profession. I do however feel that the dress code isn't enforced the way it should be which may seem trivial but is an important part of learning. All in all though, Somersworth High has a great relationship with the parents and are truly dedicated to teaching. I wouldn't think of sending my children anywhere else.
