I really enjoyed the environment within Somers High! Most of the teachers are fantastic and the students are generally positive and motivated. My only gripe with the school is the administration. I feel at times things are done backward and are unorganized. However, the administration seems to be under construction and things are slowly improving. Overall, Somers High was a great place to spend my four years of study!
Very good teachers, good curriculum and an overall good environment. Has been a very good experience for me!
Overall, I have had an enjoyable experience attending Somers High School. I believe that the teachers and administration are very helpful and strongly care about the students success. However, I do believe that our school does not offer a significant amount of courses to choose from. Compared to surrounding districts, I felt that my school could have offered more Advanced Placement courses.
