    "Honestly, due to it high ratings by others, I expected it to be a good school,yet that changed when I started as a new student in 9th grade last year. It is a terrible school, the staff is not very friendly, and most of the staff speaks broken English and mostly Spanish. The teachers are mostly young, and have no experience or caring about us. My Algebra 1 teacher, was horrendous, he would mostly talk about how great Jamiaca is more than math, he would also, not inform us when we had our chapter tests. I barely learned in there. My mother had to straighten him out a few times. He still was stubborn and kept talking about the benefits of being a teacher,(insurance, paid during summer,etc.). The students are not very welcoming. I swear, I was lucky that I made 3 friends there. They are just rude and not very including. The only good thing about the school, is that they have a dance program. That is the only reason I sort of wanted to go there. The dance teacher is amazing, and all that. My English teacher wa okay, but she was really nice am she actually taught, except she spoke REALLY broken English. I mean, she could barely pronounce the words on our spelling bee."

    "Principal works out with the teacher exercising which makes it harder to communicate with either some of the teachers or the principal. Teacher leave when they find a better job that is part of the Florida Retirement System (Pines Charter). Thus, a high turnover rate, lots of students take public transportation from North Dade County to attend school here. Some teachers are dictators and can not teach. They are fresh out of college and give lots of busy work, but do not teach!!!!!"

    "An abundant of overachieving students, teachers, and administrators! We feel extremely fortunate to have three children attending Somerset Academy. This school exemplifies what a school can achieve under superior leadership. Principal extraordinaire,Mr. Bernardo Montero, is by far the most impressive principal I have witnessed, yielding tremendous accolades for this school. My husband is an Attorney and I am a former teacher and we feel the school is affording our children top notch academics in superb environment. The parental involvement is incredible as are the amenities and facilities. They have award-winning programs including: a Pre-Law Academy complete with a real Mock court room, a Pre-Med Academy, a Fine Arts Conservatory complete with a Dance Studio and a professional Martial Arts program. The school is constantly triumphant in all kinds of competitions...From debate events to athletics events. They strive to excel in ALL endeavors and activities, big or small. Prior to Somerset, our children attended an excellent charter school and private school in Weston. Somerset has undoubtedly surpassed both of these schools."

    "Somerset is not for the mediocre! If you or your child are driven to aspire to be the best, then this school is for you. The excellence begins from the administration and infused into teachers and curriculum. Head Principal, Mr. Montero aspires to be the best and it shows. He is involved in all aspects of the school and knows every family. It is a unique charter school with Elementary, Middle, and High School in separate buildings but on the same campus. Our children look forward to attending school and we are confident they are receiving an accelerated education second to none."

    "I am the parent of two children who have been attending Somerset since elementary school. Sticking with Somerset as they went through their growing pains was well worth it for me. My daughters have grown both socially and academically with the help of Mr. Montero (the school's principal) and his staff at Somerset. Mr. Montero knows all of his students by names and faces, not by numbers or statistics. The students don't get lost in the shuffle as they do in larger public schools where they could easily even leave campus and never be missed. All who leave Somerset, whether they care to admit it or not, do well in whatever their endeavors are. The desire to do well is contagious at Somerset, and this is what the students take with them. The friendly competition and desire for success among the students at Somerset is very impressive."
