Thank you for your interest in Somerville Public Schools. As educators dedicated to helping all students in our community reach their potential, we understand the importance and value that families place on finding an enriching school environment for their children.
The Somerville Public Schools are known for educating the whole child. From the moment your student first walks through our doors, we are committed to providing them with a safe and stimulating environment that will allow them to dream of the possibilities their futures hold, and will provide them with the skills to help them succeed.
Our commitment to your child begins in the classroom, with an inspiring learning environment and an enriching approach to teaching and learning that fosters teamwork, high standards of excellence, and the desire to succeed. Working in focused teams, teachers plan and deliver innovative, energizing instruction in the core subjects of English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies, to provide a solid foundation for your child's continued academic success. Our core subject curriculum is complemented with regular, high quality specialist instruction in Visual Arts, Music, Library/Media Services, and Health/Physical Education.
The development of the whole child is evident in the wide range of additional learning opportunities we offer. Our Community Schools Afterschool program includes program choices that engage your child in additional learning opportunities beyond the school day. Athletics, field trips, enrichment activities, and clubs provide our students opportunities for increased academic and social involvement, giving students the sense of belonging and accomplishment necessary for healthy social and academic development.
Our richly diverse school communities mirror that of the City, and offer our students the chance to develop a unique multicultural understanding and experience. These qualities are among the reasons why the City of Somerville has been named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in the United States by the America's Promise Alliance every year since 2008.
I invite you to explore our website, tour our schools, and talk with other families of children enrolled in our schools to learn how we will provide your child with a well-rounded education that addresses their academic, social and creative development. To make it convenient for you to enroll your child in the Somerville Public Schools, school registration information and enrollment forms are available online at http://www.somerville.k12.ma.us/register .
Thank you for the opportunity to demonstrate why Somerville Public Schools is the right place for your child to learn and grow. I look forward to seeing you in our schools!
