Somerset Academy Canyons High School Reviews

Overall the school gave me a really good experience. The amount of advanced, Aice and AP classes you can take is really high, besides all the councelors always encouraging and guiding students to get the AICE diploma and the Bright Futures scholarship. They offer a lot of extracurricular oportunities, like teams and clubs, I did Cross Country and Track, and I couldn't say more about the team or coaches rather tham it is pure dedication. Even though I was not personally involved, I heard that their business and medical program also offered many other oportunities for the students. If I could say change something about it, I would get more councelors for the students, I remember watching students lacking information and needing help sometimes because the councelor they where talking to didn't help them as much because they where already busy with other responsabilities. But overall, the teachers and the staff take education very seriously.

I have been apart of the Somerset family for a long time, starting in its middle school since 6th grade and now going to continue and finish there in 12th grade. I have experienced the best and the worst. Some things I would like to point out are some of the great teachers working there. They are well prepared in teaching students and know how to deal with the class properly, making them highly respected people in the school. However, there are things they should improve on such as listening to students' opinions. As every high school has bad teachers, listening to students about such teachers should be a key factor to better the school and the student's education. Administration simply ignores the students, even with proof, of the bad teachings from teachers and ultimately it becomes too late to remove these teachers, making students go through a school year full of bad education. All in all, schools' over time will improve.
Somerset Academy Canyons has provided me with various opportunities ranging from a wide selection of athletics to chose from, various clubs and societies to join, and an exceptional AICE program which has allowed me to receive my AICE diploma. The AICE program at Somerset Canyons is a fantastic program to participate in for students who want to attend Florida colleges and universities, as participating in the AICE track provides students with the opportunity to receive an AICE diploma which through Bright Future ensures a full ride scholarship to in state schools. However, Somerset Academy Canyons needs to provide more AP courses which benefit students applying to out of state institutions as AICE may not be recognized by out of state schools while AP courses are. Overall, Somerset Academy Canyons is an outstanding school for students who strive to succeed.
