    Great School!! My niece has been in three different schools but since she started in Somerset Gables Academy we can notice the change. She comes everyday with a new list of word a new book or a new assignment. She comes from school happy and talking about every activity. All the professors and the staff are great!

    A truly fabulous school that devotes itself to the loving education of each of its unique students. Small class sizes and excellent teachers mean that each student receives individualized instruction and challenging learning experiences. The school community is itself nurturing and kind. One could not ask for a better school for his or her children.
