Principal's Welcome Message
Dear Somerville High School Community:
On behalf of the faculty and administration of Somerville High School I would like to welcome you to the 2013 – 2014 school year. I am privileged to have the opportunity to return this year as your Principal and I am honored to work with our outstanding staff and students as we kick-off another year. As this school year begins we remain committed to meeting the academic needs of our students while providing a healthy and safe educational environment for all our participants.
This year’s theme at the Ville is an “All In” commitment made by district staff and administration to work together with all members of the school community in support of our students. It is our expectation that our students strive for excellence in each and every endeavor they choose. Working together, our students will achieve that excellence.
I am looking forward to working with all participants of our school community this year as we align the goals of Somerville High School with that of the Somerville Board of Education. We will continue to analyze and monitor our programs to ensure that we are providing services that are second to none. We are presently in the process of examining our current programs and exploring enhancements in the areas of guidance services, post secondary transitional services, and programs that integrate the community and curriculum. These goals will provide us an opportunity to research, explore, implement and/or improve already established programs. It is imperative that our programs are structured as such to inform students and community. It is my hope, that the outcome of these goals will do just that.
As a school community we will face the challenges that stand before us and accomplish so much. Once again, I would like to welcome you back for another school year in which we will work together and continue to strive for excellence. We are “All In” at the Ville!
Have a wonderful year!
Gerard T. Foley
