Seabreeze, the only A school in Volusia county for the year of 2013-2014, has helped me tremendously. The staff is beyond helpful and supportive and strive to help the students in their educational path. They are there for those who need extra help with something and want you to understand the curriculum to the best of your abilities. Although it is an old school it has been recently remodeled and is very beautiful. There's a minor drug problem but it's in every highschool to be honest. So happy to say I'll be graduating from Seabreeze highschool! Class of 2015

There is a pervasive drug culture at this high school. We are removing our daughter from this school just to get her away from the pot. It is possible to be in this school and not smoke but it would be hard to find friends and you would definitely be in the minority. Teachers are hit and miss. Some seem to care others are just not interested. Spruce Creek would be a better choice.

Seabreeze has a very nice campus and fantastic peripheral staff. It is clean and always feels safe. There are a few fantastic teachers. The administration is so cluttered down by menial tasks I am not sure they are able to do the job needed for the students. Generally I want to blame the county for most shortfalls but I have had limited support almost all around. So, it is a safe clean school with nice kids,limited social problems . Education is like all what your child makes it. Best of luck.

Would like to learn m ore about ESE and to know if the teachers are there for the children or for the pay check?? Thanks


Posted March 8, 2011

This school has something for everyone. It offers a variety of challenging curriculum including 3 Academies; Culinary, Drafting and Multimedia. Also, AP, Honors and highly commended ESE curriculum. The athletic and club opportunities are abound. Teachers and staff, through the principal level try to make the school feel like a home away from home.

Seabreeze is not a good school at all. I would know, i went there, but i'm switching to Mainland. There are very few good teachers and the students are simply not focused at all so it makes learning for those who are focused very difficult. The location of the school is beautiful, being it's right across the street from the beach, but it's really just a huge distraction. The campus is insanely run down and nasty.

Seabreeze is an excellent school. The teachers are very caring about not only your academics, but are attentive if there are personal problems. I currently attend Flagler Palm Coast High School, just so I can get some variety in my education, but I can't wait to go back to Seabreeze.

This is my sons freshman year at Seabreeze and he says the school is wonderful! The teachers really care! but it takes a long time to get email replys from teachers and to schedule teacher appointments.

I love this school. There are great teachers that strive to teach us students new things everyday. Plus our sports and other extracurricular activities are phenominal.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
