Somerset Academy Charter High School Reviews

I have been in Somerset Academy since 5th grade and I am currently graduating as a 12th grader this year. There are many aspects of this school where they fall as average. The lunchroom, the bathrooms, the security, the classrooms- average. They're never in bad condition but its nothing above and beyond. Now, what really stitches and holds this school together like glue are the teachers. The teachers in this school have to be the best picked human beings that have ever crossed a place like Pembroke Pines. I cannot stress how many students have felt inspired and mentored by the teachers. I cannot stress enough how the teachers are the heart of this school. And ONLY because of them, I highly stress how amazing this school is for a growing child. In here, they will find their mentor, confident, a friend, and a TEACHER! There has NEVER been a year that I hadn't connected with two or more teachers and they have all shaped me into someone who I am really proud of.

Ive been to Somerset Academy for 13 years now and I absolutely love it. The people there are so sweet and there is a good amount of diversity as well. There are tons of activities, events and clubs to participate in and the academics are also outstanding as Somerset is an A school. The principal is amazing and the teachers are all great as well as the students. Students are also shown to many different opportunities to help them with college such as scholarships, college courses and college fairs. I wouldn't change anything about the school and I'm very happy to be going there. I cant wait to graduate with them!
Somerset was a very nurturing environment, where everyone knew everyone, the administration was very caring and genuinely fostered diversity within the school community. I met some incredible teachers intent on helping us learn and grow. These relationships helped me get into college and foster an attitude of self-growth. The academics were good, like any other school it's ultimately up to the individual student to take it upon themselves to strive for high grades and a higher grade point average. The academic advisors were decent, and the clubs and honor societies were very fun and offered a great setting for networking.
