About Us

WELCOME TO SOMERVILLE SCHOOL

Somerville Elementary School is a true learning community where teachers, students and parents all work together to make every child's K-5 experience a memorable one. Embracing the ideology that the ideal school should be a cross between Harvard and Disneyland: educational excellence and the happiest place on Earth, the teachers at Somerville work tirelessly to challenge and support students everyday throughout the school year. Our dedicated parent community contributes continually to this process through volunteering, chairing events, and fundraising to enrich the Somerville experience via new technology and playground equipment. Of course, our students give the greatest gift - their hearts and minds - each and every day!
