This is the School that I’ve been going to since I was in kindergarten. Throughout my time at Somerville High I have seen a lot of teachers come and go for many reasons. Either because of students not being the most respectful or just getting some teaching experience and moving on to a better school afterwards. Despite the relatively high turn over rate the School has a pretty good education system, the teachers do get to know the students because the classes are so small it allows us and the teachers to know one another, be more productive in our work, and challenge you to be hardworking and creative in your learning and thinking. So I’d like to thank my teachers after my time at the school for challenging me academically and creatively, for being able to teach me, and for being supportive of the dreams that I have and want to achieve.

The curriculum at Somerville HS is in some ways challenging and in others not so much. I for one am slow, so it takes me awhile to fully understand a concept or lesson. The main problem are school has is teachers just come and go. We don't have the best record for teachers consistently staying more than 2-3 years. Other than that, I feel the school is fairly decent for it's size. It's pretty small, and the advantages of it are the students (such as myself) can get more, one-on-one time with the teachers. My favorite thing about my school is the band program. It is a force to wreck with in marching, and has over a 20 year in a row first division rating in concert and marching divisions.
My overall experience at this school so far has been great. Going to a 1a school, I got to participate in a lot of extra circular activities such as volleyball, softball, tennis, track, cheer-leading, band, interact club and student council. My favorite experience was being a cheerleader for the school. What makes the school unique is that it is in a very small town. We grow up together so we end up making life long friends. If I could do it over again I wouldn't. Attending that school shaped me to be the woman I am today.
