Somerville High


There probably has never been a time when education was not a problem in some communities throughout the world. Moreover, there probably isn’t a radio or television station that has not, at some time, looked into these problems. WCVB-TV took a look into the realities of atypical, contemporary urban high school. Somerville High suffered from many of the same problems that have plagued schools all over this country: problems with discipline, motivation and faculty morale. Growing out of all this, however, TV discovered that a great sense of hopefulness seems to be taking hold and that school spirit is growing. The result of this striking look at today’s high school was deemed worthy of recognition. Thus, a Peabody to WCVB-TV for Somerville High.
