I'm one of those students that's just coasting by their high school years, hoping for it to be over as soon as possible so I could leave the place. I've gone to the Somerset District my whole life. Everyone knows everyone, it's a small town where news travels fast about the transfer students or some accident. The high school experience isn't really great unless you know the staff, typically that's kids that excel at sports and their relatives are working at the school or have been in Somerset for some time.

I like how the student get into clubs and having fun during home games. The teachers are super sweet and they have prepared me for college. I was always friendly and very social, I joined organization and clubs. I even was Vice President of a Fashion Club, I’ve been wanting to do and the experience was great though the club went down hill I still didn’t give up but as the day went by I wasn’t able to keep it together. It was my senior year and i had a lot on my plate for college. I can honestly say I enjoyed being in high school extracting with new students and showing them around and making new friends was always a goal of mine. The work was a challenge but that didn’t stop me and I carried on with my life and finally graduated from high school.
School decisions are made according to small-town politics, disregarding the actual students that attend the school. A good school if you're looking for a plan Z, otherwise steer clear.
