Somerset School's Mission Statement
The mission of Somerset School is to prepare young, emerging adolescent students with the understandings and skills necessary to cope with their own changes from childhood to adolescence, and with academic skills and knowledge essential for the transition into the middle level, continued school success, as well as life-long learning.
Core Values of the North Plainfield Schools
Caring, Appreciation, Respect, Determination
Unlocking Potential, Creating Impact
It is my mission to make each and every individual who walks through the building feel safe foremost and also valued, appreciated, and respected. I expect that everyone including myself comes here with a positive attitude, great enthusiasm and passion, and the energy to make an impact. I will not tolerate negative expressions towards any member of our community. It should come as no surprise to anyone that a principal is often responsible for the attitudes that come through the building; therefore, I will do everything in my control to make this positive. I will make an effort to spend each day visiting classrooms, interacting with students and staff, examining school related data, monitoring hallways, listening to concerns, and being responsive to the needs of our school.
