    I feel that the children are very well educated and the teachers and staff are fantastic. My children have had a wonderful experience at the Middle school. I hope I can say the same about the High School.

    My child moved to the Somerset Middle School in the middle of seventh grade. So far I am not impressed. I get the feeling that the teachers are far more interested in keeping classes quiet than in teaching and encouraging students.

    I am a Student at Somerset Middle School and I think it is a very good school for your child to go to. They make you feel welcome when your a new 6th grader in a new school. Even now as an 8th grader they are always helping you in any way possible.

    I am a former student of Somerset Middle School. After being there for 3 years I realized that I didn't want to continue my high school education in this school district and decided to go to a private school instead. Teachers at the middle school are very apathetic. Instead of trying to encourage students with a not so great academic record they dish out negative comments and remarks. Kids need motivation. Encouragement. Support. At Somerset Middle School they don't get that. If you want your child's best qualities and strengths to be brought out I wouldn't recommend Somerset Middle School.
