Somerset Academy Central Miramar

Every day I see visitors to this site that are trying to find information about the new charter school in Miramar: Somerset Academy Central Miramar. To be honest, I didn't know much about it until recently, and still certainly don't know everything. So if you have something to add, please comment below.

What I do have, however, is a letter from Principal Shannine Sadesky to parents of Somerset Academy Miramar about this new Pre-K through 12th grade school, opening for the 2011-2012 school year. It is in this letter that Principal Sadesky lets everyone know about some of the personnel decisions they have made, the vision for the schools, and the goals to make the Somerset schools a united family. She will be Principal for both campuses.

I have uploaded the letter for you to read below if you'd like. You can see who the leadership for each school will be, the locations, the contact information, etc. The new school's website is still in its early stages, but I'm sure much more informative content is on its way. If you happen to have any photos, I'd be interested in publishing them. Let me know.

Was told their being investigated because DCF was called out due to two teens that were raped . The school is not equipped for that many students and their own principal hates going to the school. Their has been numerous of fights in the church stair ways. The miss eat outside. Something has to be done.

I don't know anything about any of that. I'm not saying it's not true but I feel that I might have heard about some of it considering the principal is the same for my own kid at Somerset Miramar and that the schools are linked.

How do you know the principal hates going? Did she say something like that on the record where I can verify it? Where can I read about the other incidents you mentioned. I will listen to whatever anyone has to say.

It's sad to see that the reasons people end up with misconceptions about the school are because of rumors. I've been reading and researching about the incident and no where are those 2 accusations from Anonymous mentioned. From what I know of the Principal, being that I have been a parent of Somerset for many years I am sure that she has been working diligently and I am sure that whatever has taken place was handled accordingly. Somersets are amazing schools, where the employees and leaders are at the forefront of the students' education and their well-being.

Overall, the Somerset Academy Schools are great. However, I don't think the Central Miramar Campus was ready and equipped to handle so many students at one time. I have volunteered at the school on several occasions and seen unhappy parents and students. Students are always hard to please; however many of the parent has valid points. There were no school books, disorganization, miscommunication and no one that gave straight up answers to any questions. The food in the cafeteria is very nasty. The students have complaint about it on several occasions while I was volunteering. Many times they offer the students pizza, chicken nuggets, hotdog, salad with no salad dressing and milk. I would recommend parents packing their children lunch. The cafeteria is very small so many of the students eat in a spill out area. The are is a tent with tables and chairs. Just recently, they added vending machines and fans. The cafeteria is small because Florida Bible (previous owners) had less students. The elementary students eat lunch as early as 10:15am. The cafeteria sales ice cream and large cookies every day. I have a problem with this because my child is constantly asking for money to purchase unhealthy food. As far as students being raped. The community was informed by HOT105 and the parents were told brief information about the situation. The students on campus states the two were having sex and was caught in the bathroom. The girl told her parents that she was raped. Both students were suspended. As of two weeks ago, the young man was still in jail. I verified that information myself when I received the name of the student from his classmate. The teachers are great. Most of the teachers are formally employed by Florida Bible and they have huge hearts. Somerset has a proven track record of turning schools around, I hope this will soon be the case of Somerset Miramar. I’ve seen some improvement; however they still have 360 degrees to go.

Thanks for your contribution. I've been to church there before and just from looking at the size of the facility and reading how many students attend now, I was a little surprised they'd even try to make it work.

Sounds like they have a way to go with some aspects. As for the criminal part, well, I won't say anything since all the facts seem buried and difficult to verify.

I read all the comments and sincerely I'm having second thought about enrolling my 5 and 4 year old at this school. They are attending Fairway Elementary and I'm not pleased with their education there. Any body has some insight on this. I've been looking for the school grades and nothing. Someone help ..
