Somerset Hills Regional School District Reviews
This district is, without a doubt, one of the top in the state of New Jersey. You will not find more motivated students, faculty, and parents. In addition to academic achievement, the atmosphere is also very nurturing and supportive from Kindergarten to Senior year. The sports programs are also first rate, and because Bernards is a small high school, there is much more playing time for students who are interested in sports. The college search process is also very thoughtful. This is a wonderful place for students to learn, socialize, and enjoy their school years!
I grew up in the small town of Bernardsville, New Jersey and have lived here my whole life. I attend the Somerset Hills School District and have made numerous friends throughout the years. Although it is a small country town, the people I've met and the education I've received has been stellar. The type of education I've received is similar to a private education with small class sizes and individual attention provided. Growing up I was involved in many sport programs affiliated with the school district. I have seen the growth of these programs and how advanced our sports teams have become and how much our district has improved throughout the years. I hope the district continues to fund our sports programs so that we can continue to field competitive teams in all sports. However, since I did struggle with math throughout the years, I feel that perhaps they could revamp the program to make it more engaging.
The teachers do not care about their students. There is no diversity in the school. There is a wide gap between the smart kids and the kids who really struggle. The school is so small; you know everyone and all of their personal business. The kids are snobby. There is a big nicotine problem. Coaches do not care about their athletes.
