Our Philosophy

Our Mission Statement:

The mission of the Somersworth School District is “to inspire all students to excel, to develop a thirst for knowledge, and to teach the essential skills necessary to be caring, contributing, and responsible individuals in an ever-changing world.”

For over 15 years, the Somersworth School District has embraced a multi-tiered system of behavior support called Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies or PBIS.  

In 2006, Somersworth High School was struggling in many ways with a high drop-out rate and discipline problems. That all changed in 2007 with the implementation of PBIS.  Watch "Education Revolution at Somersworth High School" to see what is possible when a school believes in both its students and in each other.
