Welcome to the Somerville High School Homepage! We hope you find the information on our website useful and informative. If you are searching for information regarding our comprehensive curriculum, academic programs, athletic schedules, extracurricular offerings, or you just need to find out what’s happening at the Ville, you will find it here.
Now that the 2017-2018 school year is upon us and we look toward the future, I am proud to celebrate our past successes. Our Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) focused on student engagement, technology, and social responsibility for the 21st century learner. In doing so, teachers built on 21st century skills in the delivery of instruction and students gained an overall sense of awareness on the importance of being a socially responsible citizen. Moving forward, we will build on the success of these goals in the development of our 2017-2018 WIG. Our Academy Programs are thriving and in recent years, we have added more than 23 elective course offerings to our Program of Studies. Our students now have more choices to meet their interest when selecting courses. Similarly, our 1:1 Chromebook initiative has provided staff and students with more options to engage in platforms such as Google Applications, Actively Learn, and Apex. These digital platforms broaden teacher options when engaging students in 21st century skills. Through our community partnerships, program of studies, curriculum, and extracurricular offerings, each Somerville High School learner is provided with the opportunity to reach his/her full potential. In our efforts to maintain those opportunities for our students, we will continue to build on our successes and reflect on what could have gone differently.
Our programs are successful because of the commitment and input of our stakeholders. I welcome your feedback through platforms such as Parent/Principal Hour or the Somerville High School Stakeholders Survey. Your support and involvement is essential in the success of your son/daughter and I encourage your input. I look forward to a productive partnership for a great 2017-2018 school year. #VillePride - Go Pioneers!
