Dear Somerville High School Community:
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you the the 2015-2016 school year.
The Somerville High School staff and administration continue to analyze and monitor our programs to ensure that we are providing services that are tailored to meet the needs of our students. Last year’s Wildly Important Goal (WIG) focused on data collection regarding student engagement through Purpose Driven Walkthroughs. This year’s WIG focuses on methods of instructional delivery through the use of applications that promote research, collaboration, and communication using 21st Century Technology. Through our 1:1 Chromebook Initiative, student devices will serve as an invaluable tool when engaging in these real world applications. In addition to our chromebook initiative, we are proud to offer all students unlimited online course access through our Apex digital curriculum platform. These courses will serve to provide our students with opportunities for enrichment beyond the walls of Somerville High School.
We are embarking on new and exciting programs and will closely monitor each one to ensure success in its implementation. The aforementioned programs, as well as current extra-curricular, athletic, and academic programs are continuously being analyzed and assessed by the administration. As we strive to meet the needs of our school community, feedback from our students, parents, and staff is paramount. In our efforts to gather this feedback, we have created a new Stakeholder Survey. This survey is posted on the high school homepage and will remain there for the entire 2015-2016 school year. We welcome your continuous feedback and look forward to a productive partnership for a great school year in support of our students.
