Open Quote Very pleased with the small, family like community at Somerset. Wonderful PTA events, great school wide activities. Most teachers are caring and do a great job differentiating instruction. Also like the enrichment activities like Rubik’s cube club, Girls on the Run, etc. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
