I'm a former student of Southeastern. It's a great school. They gave me a great education. It's unlike any other. :)

Southeastern is a wonderful school, my daughter has gone for 5 years and is going into 7th grade now. it's great they've finally finished construction for the high school and gym, and in a year they will be getting 12th grade. I love that they have great teachers who have helped my daughter learn so much over the years, and it's a friendly environment where she's made lots of friends. My only concern is all of the fundraisers they have, but I can understand since they need money for the high school. Overall, Southeastern is a great school to go to.

My son has gone to Southeastern for the last 7 years now and I am very pleased with the school, principal and the teachers. Each teacher that my son has had has provided an excellent education program. My son has had many trips to the principals office and I think Mr. Peoples has gone over and beyond. He is very fair and very understanding. I have made many close friendships with the teachers. This is an excellent school to send your child to.

I was glad to hear that Southeastern will be starting construction of their new high school. As of the current meeting, the new school will be open in August 2011. The athletic programs are growing and there is talk of also having a football team. The new K-12 school is one that is much needed in Blount County.

I find it highly unlikely that this school will ever evolve into a K-12, even with the Jr. Varsity athletics programs. This is noise that has been echoed for years. The upper administration couldn't care less about this school.This school is held together by the teachers and the parents who kill themselves to make this a better school, unfortunately they're voices and concerns are ignored . Those, who can, pay out-of-district after 6th grade to avoid the default. And they are gladly accepted because they know that Southeastern produces quality students. Unfortunately they will always fall short due to upper administrations other interests.

I went to school here in the early 90's until I reached 4th grade. Back then, there was an issue with too many students and not enough teachers. Now my 7 year old daughter goes to Southeastern as well. I love the school. I have had a few little problems with some faculty but always had the problem fixed within just a matter of hours. Mr.Peoples has never let me down and neither has 99% of the faculty. Knowing now that the school has Jr.Varsity atheletics, is very comforting to know that in a few years it will a K-12 school.

Southeastern has its good and bad points.My 12 year old loved southeastern but when we moved I feel she was behind.My 5 year old hated it and was behind when we moved.There are some great teachers there but also bad ones just like any school I guess .My 12 year old to get to play softball I had to pick her up everyday take her to Locust Fork for pratice so kids canplay sports if parnets have the tme to take them to pratice.We moved because of this and now my 5 year old loves school.My 12 year old hates the move she misses all her friends at Southeastern.

This is a very small school. This of course has its advantages as well as disadvantages. Everyone knows one another which is great. No overcrowded classrooms. There are very few extra-curricular activities. Basketball is the only available sport and the smallness of the school sometimes all grades do not have enough children to form teams. Last year there was no music teacher. There are many hispanic children who attend some who speak very little english-I feel this adversely affects the learning environment. They do have an ESL teacher which I feel is unfair to other children with learning disabilities who do not have extra help.

I finally moved my child out of this school because of Michael Peoples' passive/aggressive way of dealing with every issue. He will not call back parents & will not address teacher miss-conduct. There is no Football, Baseball, Art Class or Music at this school! If you want your children to be well rounded, don't send them here!

My son has gone to this school all of his life. He will be graduating to High School and hates to leave. From his kindergarten teacher all the way to the 8th grade the teachers, Thanks! The Principal and office staff are Wonderful! Thanks to the parents involvement over the years, my son started out his baseball career. Southeastern Elementary needs the baseball program back. Parent involvement is needed. Thanks to all that were involved teaching my son both in the classroom and in sports. I recommend Southeastern 100 percent!

My daughter is in Kindergarden at Southeastern Elem. I was afraid that school would be hard on her but she has a great teacher who has made this year wonderful for both my daughter and myself. Mrs. Blockers has brought out so many good characteristics in my daughter that I did not know she possesed, she is reading and writing. This school is the BEST!

I have two children attending Southeastern. One has been there for 7 years and one for 3. I feel that it is the best elementary school in Blount County. The class size is small and the teachers are very caring & eager to help children in any way they can. I am sad that it will be my oldest child's last year and I am pushing for a high school. I think we really need that. I have been very satisfied with Southeastern and would recommend it to anyone.

I love this school! My child has gone there now for three years. We have never had any problems. Her teacher this year was wonderful. All her students were on honer role(with the exception of 2)out of 18 kids i feel that speaks volumes. Everyone there is nice. The teachers keep you informed on whats going on. I do wish that we had more sports.(Like the school being involed with the basaball team )like we are with the basketball. We also need our on high school! Our kids have to go to a diffent school where they dont always know the other kids. When this happens they seem to the desire to push on all the way, finding them selfs a outsider. We have a great school! The best in Alabama.

Southeastern is Blount County's best kept secret. However, recent growth reveals the secret is out. Small class size, competent teachers combined with strong parental involvement makes Southeastern a winner in education. The only thing Southeastern needs is its own high school! It would be nice for the students of Southeastern to continue their excellent academic course through completion of the 12th grade.

This school has some good teachers, some who really care. It is a small school so we seem to notice things more than you would at a big school. I feel the school needs to stand behind its students more. But most of the teachers are great.
