Somerset Academy - Silver Palms Reviews

My experience in Somerset Academy was not exactly the best. I would like to see a change in the space of the parking lot and the cafeteria. Also, during lunch we had to stay all bunched up in the cafeteria. We were not allowed to go to the fields to stretch our legs. They also should change the soccer/ football field as the ground is sort of uneven and has many holes, this is problematic as the students can get hurt. Also, they should spend some money to pay for a nurse or a place were we can get medical attention. Also, some of the teachers were not apt for their job. It seems they didn't know about the subject they were supposed to teach.

Somerset is a school that teach their students very well to be ready for college. They have a good program of sports, especially on soccer and football. Somerset provide especial classes for those children that doesn't know how to talk and write in English. Also they have very goods professors that help you whenever you need help, doesn't matter if is personal or academic, they would always be there.
Alot of the teachers and staff are great,but its obvious that alot of the others are just there to get paid.One of my teachers actually said to the class she was just there to get money for grad school and that she hated kids. Nobody in my grade wants to stay at silver palms for high school. The majority of the sports teams are trash and they dont give any funding to the arts,the books are outdated and are graphited.Ihave gone to silver palms since 1 grade and i cant wait to leave.
