Somerville Public School District Reviews

It's a good school. The environment is nice and people there are usually good people. I love the administration and the secretaries. The only problem I have with the high school is the teachers. Some of them are fantastic and really prepared me for college, while others are so bad. Some teachers treat us like 5 year old kids, others take lesson plans from the internet, and some are just so stupid. I think if they replace some teachers, the school's education would be much better.

I like the inclusivity of the school. I also really enjoy the community service projects they offer and the school-wide team building activities. It can truly feel like a family, however, some teachers and academic choices are not entirely logical.
There are limited amount of electives to choose from and most are for the entire year. This restricts exploration of interests such as film, engineering, and the arts. The teachers are not innovative and flexible In their learning styles to accommodate students at various learning levels.
