Somerset High School is lacking in competent teachers. While there a few excellent teachers, most fall short of satisfactory. Students who exhibit above average intelligence are often starved of challenging curriculum, until they reach their junior or senior year, thus hindering their mental growth. It sickens me to walk the halls every day only to be met with a perpetual exaltation of the sports programs, especially football. If you want to show off your kid to the town because of their athletic ability, this school is perfect. However, if you would like to ensure your student's success in college and life, send them elsewhere.
my daughter has and iep and im not to pleased with there program and teachers have had many meetings and i'm more concerned on her understand the material not keeping her in the mainstream of her peers and they don't keep the parents updated always seeking on her progress they need to focus on the students needs.
School is to focused on getting what they want and not focussing on the students. Need to update there teaching styles and math programs miss to much from middle to high school. My kids both wanted to transfer to a different school and I wish I would have listened to them after dealing with this school.
Our school is okay. It's focused too much on 'Let's be safe kids, and make sure that you don't do anything wrong or we'll call the cops over in a heartbeat.' People get in trouble for the stupidest things. I just don't really like how uptight it is. The teachers are cool but I don't like our principal much at all.
