Somerset Continuation High School serves students who have fallen behind in credits in the Bellflower Unified School District. Bellflower Unified has two comprehensive high schools, Bellflower High School and Mayfair High School, which feed into Somerset. Somerset allows students to earn credits at a higher rate than the comprehensive school setting, giving our students a second chance at on-time graduation.
Somerset has been identified as a Model Continuation School on five occasions, with its fifth award being presented in April of 2013. The faculty and staff believe that all students can succeed, even those who have previously failed or made bad choices. On top of this core belief, faculty and staff are also focused on helping students graduate on time, transfer back to their comprehensive school site, and prepare students for success in achieving their post-secondary goals. Somerset High school is committed to seeking new ways to help each student achieve academically at the highest level possible, with a special focus on the purposes stated above.
