Welcome to the Somerton School District

This is going to be an outstanding year for the students and adults at Somerton School District! We are a community of learners.  We are relentless in our pursuit of personal excellence, learning and growth. We inspire each other to greater levels of excellence as we each become more skilled and consistent.

This past year we exceeded our demographic expectations for achievement and have begun to meet and exceed State averages. We are focusing on a Growth Mindset as we see our struggle and practice as the necessary discipline toward excellence and achievement.

As Thomas Edison said when asked how he felt when the filaments he tried kept failing,  “I didn’t fail 1,000 times.  The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
