  • I first came from Rochester and was appauled by the number of kids who always get away with things they wouldn't get away with if they were in Rochester. Overall I sooooooooooooooo like Rochester more. I may have made some good friends but most of them still get in trouble occassionally. I hate the teachers because most of them have no clue what they're teaching but some of them are really nice and doo knbow what they're teaching. The pricipal is an epic fail and so are most of the staff members. The school lunches are terrible and the school grounds are dirty and right next to a swamp that smells really bad.

  • Well where do I begin? This school is a nightmare! Kids are potty mouths, the principal is the worst I have ever seen! He cant keep the kids under control. And I like the teachers, they are very nice to me but, I see too many kids getting beat up or being harrassed. This school needs to improve soon!!!

  • i can't believe my son is in this awful sounding school. he'll be in 7th grade. he's been in the somersworth school system for 4 years and when i've asked him if he's ever been bullied, he said he was fine. sorry kids that the adults there aren't doing their best when they should be. i used to be bullied back in my days by both boys and girls. learn to ignore them is all you can do and stay away from them as much as you can.

  • I will forever apologize to my child for sending him to this school for this year. This school, in my belief, bullies their students...I'm talking about the administration, from the principal all the way down to the cafeteria staff. Thank goodness we only have one year here, but the memories will always be there. This school needs a good enema!

  • Hi, I have been to about four schools including Somersworth Middle, this school, it does have some of the nicest most supportive teachers, but it is horrible, the curriculum here, well, we are learning that is right on, but the kids here, they cant read, and I am in 7th grade, kids still cant read the sentence, "The dog is green. The cat is blue." it is almost embarrasing. The kids are also HORRIBLE last Friday I came home from school with two black eyes, just because I confronted someone on a rumor that wasnt true, thus, this school is a zoo! I have to go....HOMEWORK!

  • I love the teachers at my school, but the students are killer-litterally, 12 year old kids with mouths of-awful- the words they say! Lip and belly peircings, and they beat each other up! I have been the star of rumors, (meaning- people always start rumors about me) and have been beaten up a number of times. I just wish someone would get controll over these kids. I am a 7th grader- can I get some help?
