Somerset Independent School District Reviews

I worked at Somerset and if you are not in the clique, you do not get treated well. I’ve been with other school districts and never had a problem, however at this district it felt like I could never do anything the way they wanted it. Too much time is spent in meetings to learn “how to be a better teacher” than actually being able to teach the students. The workload placed on the teachers is insane. Finding time to actually plan and teach is hard. I did not find my time there enjoyable at all and not sure if I ever want to teach again. I used to love teaching.

I moved to Somerset my freshman year of high school because I heard about the great academic and college readiness program they had known as GEAR UP. Ever since I moved to Somerset my grades have been A's and B's and I have been involved in many organizations to increase my leadership skills.Moving was the best decision I've had, on the other hand, I would like to see more parent involvement because they do not know of the requirements they need to do in-order for their children to go to college.
While the school overall provided a positive and educational environment, academic relationships were poor. It was difficult to get into contact with anyone in the office, and college readiness was restricted.
