Somerville Elementary School5

I pulled my child out of Fayette Academy after several miserable years. He had no self esteem left and it was just horrible. We love Somerville Elementary!!! His teacher has brought his confidence up. It is so amazing. I wish we never wasted our money at Fayette Academy and just started our son at Somerville Elementary!
Love it! I have two kids who go there. They are both doing great academically. My daughter would not let me teach her anything before she started to school, and now, in first grade, she is one of the best readers in her class. I have to give credit to her teachers for that.
This school has a WONDERFUL teaching staff. The children seem to love them. The problem is the principal. He is not a people person. He runs and hides when he is faced with an issue that pertains, solely, to him. I believe the school would be better if they had a better leader.
I feel as if the school is doing better. The children's test scores are coming up and the teachers are really trying to get the student prepared for the TCAPS and also to do the other school work also. The school has a few things the kids can do after school to help also.
