Somerville High School
Alisa Fonti: I think it is a wonderful high school. My daughter graduated with honors from this school in 2009 and my son is currently attending Somerville and is a freshman. The teachers are dedicated and involved. It's refreshing to receive a phone call for an undocumented absence or lateness. The teachers are connected to the students and know most of them by name. Other than the fact that the school is not as modern an updated as other high schools in N.J., it's still a wonderful school where children can receive a first rate education.
