This school is going down hill since the new admin has came into effect. Changing things that didnt need to be changed. And people are gonna say well there scores were high. but the truth is the new admin didnt do that in one year. and well look at next year and the next and u will notice scores going down

Last year's scores weren't high, they were horrible. SHS's scores were down by 20+ points. SHS is now behind both county high schools and the trend is going to continue. SHS scored below the state and national averages. The leadership at the high school is non-existant. When the students ask for better discipline, you know things are bad.
BTW, there was a near riot/food fight in the cafeteria today. Watch how the "leadership" responds to that.

Ima change the topic off the school in general because there are some great teachers but they will not be there much longer if this admin keeps up what they are doing..

I think it is sad the way the Somerset Boys and Girls programs have all but disappeared. Somerset Boys never played a schedule like the one they had this year. And the girls program is also in shambles. Looking at what they have in middle school, i am not sure if either program will ever turn around no matter who the coach is. Certain members in this community worked hard to get rid of winners like Thacker and Mason. It appears those moves cost the Jumpers much on the hardwood.

Your opinion will they every be able to turn it around.

Ok today 3 students ??? arrested. How many parents are willing to admit their student/child is abusing alcohol and drugs? Lets go with teachers, how many boys can name an English Teacher that contributes to the education of a few athletic boys for extra curricular activity. How may students know a teacher that smokes legal/non legal substance, can we say prescription meds? alcohol? Maybe it is time it all comes out.
Sports is not the students future, so when will parents get it thru their heads, that education is the best thing they can contribute for their children.
There is problems at SHS.

It has been at least 3 weeks of conversations about SHS, the facts and idiocy is now showing of what Parents, Administration and Students have ignored all along. It has taken months of ignorance to not address issues that plague that school system.
Now it is time for the Administration to take responsibility to inforce discipline and education.
Time to not take sports as the #1 reason to be in Somerset High School. It is time to treat all students equal and not by who their parents or associates in the community.
Trade off in education has damaged the integrity of the school. Explain what the Administration has done to put education first for the students that are now in legal issues, but bygolly they sure are good athletes.
Priority in Education! Equality in Education! Responsibility in Education!

If the Present Administration and Staff can not do their jobs, get out of the way to pave the way to education for all Students of Somerset High School.

What gets me is some of these kids are juniors and 19 years old, i think they need to quit holding back for sports, these are grown and legal age men, hanging out with 14 and 15 year olds, something has to be done about this.

Sounds like they might be heeding your advice. I just heard that the superintendent of Somerset schools has resigned.

Might wanna give the article another reading, Bob. Only one of the kids arrested is 19, and he's a senior.

Kind of a ridiculous point you're trying to make, though. One's age really has nothing to do with whether one should or should not be getting an education.

Actually, kinda glad that some/most of the kids arrested ARE 18 or above, though ... adults in the eyes of the law, so adult sentencing if found guilty.

I have called into the school and told the principal, as well as the assistant principal that there were drug dealers standing on school property waiting for for school to dismiss so they could sell drugs to the students. I have also seen students actually purchase drugs from these scumbags. The principal and the assistnat principal both told me that they would do something about it, but I've only seen them come outside on one occasion. They told me I would have to call the city police, who told me that it was not their job to deal with these idiots. They told me to call the Drug Task Force, who, in turn, told me to call the SPD. Well, if it isn't the school's job to deal with drug pushers, and it isn't the city police department's job to deal with them, and it isn't the drug task force;s job to deal with them, then I would really like for someone with any common sense to tell me something" Whose job is it to keep these scumbag life-sealing drug pushers away from our children?

If it were me, I would expect for it to be MY JOB to educate my children MYSELF... You WILL NEVER be able to keep 'em away @ALL TIMES. The ONLY thing you can do, is DO YOUR JOB of warning them about the risks associated with Drug Use, & then hope YOUR CHILD MAKES GOOD DECISIONS. Drugs are here to stay, & they're not going anywhere. Also, there are laws, & you can't just arrest someone on suspicion.... You must have probable cause!!!! Probable cause takes a whole lot more than just some random citizen calling our Local Police Agencies after hiding around a corner while thinking that they might have just observed a drug transaction based on the appearance of a scummy looking character "shaking hands" with another shady-looking person. Again, I WOULD NOT DEPEND ON ANYONE, other than MYSELF... There's really nothing else you can do, unless you want to shelter your Children to the point that they are totally CLUELESS in life. This method will have a much higher failure rare, especially when couped with the idea that it's someone ELSE'S RESPONSIBILITY!!!!

We lived across the street from someone who was selling drugs, we watched it every day when this kid got home from school, the cars would start dropping by for just a few minutes and leave, scarry thing was I knew some of the kids from school that my children attended. I called the police numerous times, even when one of them wrecked and hit a tree in their yard, police came to our house instead......it took one year and a half before the big drug bust. Needless to say, we have different neighbors now. If we can't keep the drug dealers off of school property, there is something big time wrong; with all of the systems
