We LOVE Seacliff Elementary! My daughter is going into 4th grade and my son is beginning Kindergarten this year! We are so excited to be starting again at Seacliff and look forward to many more wonderful years!
An excellent school that is perfect for our child. The number of students per teacher is slightly high; however, many parents volunteer in the classroom and they help keep everything going well. We were paying over $15,000 per year per child at a private school that was not nearly as good of a fit for us as Seacliff Elementary has turned out to be. We are glad that we decided to make the change to a school where children receive a balanced education and can truly thrive.
HB Seacliff is a very good school especially the teachers + staff who are dedicated to students.
Seacliff is an excellent public school. We have music, art and PE along with the highest level of academic support. These programs are funded by the PTA. The parents are all committed to make this school as good, if not better than a private school. It's a very wonderful enviorment for our children. They are thriving.
We came from a private school and Seacliff feels just like that. Lots of parental involvment, excited teachers and the feel of a small school.
Our experience at Seacliff Elementary has been very positive. From an academic standpoint, our expectations have been exceeded. Every teacher that we have had has been of the highest academic standards. The teachers are caring, positive, and dedicated. We are very pleased by the level of education that our child is receiving. The campus and the classrooms are clean and modern. The front office staff is warm and highly efficient. We extensively researched private schools in our area and chose Seacliff as our school. This has proven to be a fantastic decision! Thank you Seacliff for exceeding our greatest expectations!
This facility is very nice. Children eat lunch in an outdoor sunny area instead of in the air conditioned cafetorium. Parent involvement is high at this school. We have been at this school for three years, but will be leaving becuase they do not have as good a program as other public schools for children with special needs.
I teach at Seacliff and am very happy with my time there. They are on top of all new curricular activities that will help the children succeed. We have made strides in improving all curriculum to help those 'at risk' students. I've listened to many parent concerns about the school, but at Seacliff the parents can be a bit overbearing and sometimes rude. These parents make it difficult to get our job done sometimes. They also overshadow those parents that really work well with the teachers. So, if you have a strong personality--you'll go far at Seacliff!
'Sea Cliff elementary is a K-5 school in a very affluent area.' Being that Sea Cliff is not a 'title one' school, disabled or special needs children have difficulties accessing recourses? I am dissatisfied with the eating area, in-which is not clean and needs to be covered for shade. I would like to have an open-house for all students and parents a few days before school starts.
The school sets very high academic standards. Most students do well but I would like to see intervention programs for students who require extra support. The community involvement is outstanding and supports the schools music, art and technology. Overall, I am pleased with the school.
I was very happy for the first 5 years the school was open. The teachers were terrific, very skilled and caring. But in the last two years when there were significant issues with teachers to address, the administration failed to act in a timely manner. This has adversely affected my student, who will not be attending this school next year. Parent involvement is very high in this school, which is both good and bad for the teachers.
Seacliff is a great school with top notch teachers and administrators. Parents are very involved.
This school does not provide after school activities, which is a shame. The lunch area where the kids sit in the hot sun is not very clean. I don t understand why the beautiful cafeteria isn t used for the children. The play ground lacks along with the field which should have live grass. Although the school is new and attractive looking the education structure is very challenging.
Wonderful school if you get the right teacher. 95% Of teachers are wonderful but a couple of duds.
Sea Cliff elementary is a K-5 school in a very affluent area. The students score in 75th percentile and up in reading, writing, and math on the Sat9 test. Great school with great students. There is a high level of parental involvement through the PTA, which alsp provides the students with several extracurricular programs such as the Masters Art Program. Overall its a great school in a great neighborhood. It is also feeling the budget crunch from the woes of California, but the wonderful PTA is able to provide enough funds to make this school feel more like a private school.
