This school has been a great experience for my daughter. The principals have changed in the past 5 years but it did not change the quality of the education my daughter received. There has been lots of opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate at the school, sadly not as many participate as they need. They did recently put up fences around the school and although it is not super attractive, clearly it is much safer than it was before and more difficult for anyone to just walk in. I think that the opportunity is there to talk to the Principal or Vice Principal if anyone has issues or concerns. I have also found the teachers to be very helpful and receptive. I do think parents need to be advocates for their children and be involved with the school and their teachers to get the maximum benefits. I feel fortunate that my children have had success there.
Seawind Elementary is a collection teachers and administrators and staff that are totally committed to providing the best educational foundation for their students that they can. They also strive for excellent outreach.
The staff at this school are known to go against the wishes of the students' parents when it comes to matters of responsibility. Terrible school.
All children at SeaWind are given the opportuinity to reach their highest capacity. All children and staff work together to make SeaWind the best school in Florida.
SeaWind Elementary has amazing teachers. They are always willing to go above and beyond what is called for. Our volunteers are so dedicated and reliable.
Great staff who put the children first. Good spirt. They stress believe, acheive and succeed. The principal has an excellent open door policy.
I love SeaWind Elementary because the teachers and staff care and love our children and are always looking to make it a better place to be. They go above and beyond what you can expect!
I am a second grade teacher here at SeaWind and I love my students, my co-workers, my parents, and my administrators.
SeaWind is our favorite because we care about our students and staff. Everyone is caring and involved. Our PTSA helps our students and our teachers with new programs and volunteer help. Our teachers and staff are the best! Our students and parents rock! We love our school!
The music program is wonderful. Mrs. Willoughbee offers a top quality elementary school experience. The Science teacher, Mrs. Read offers wonderful after school programs too. I have two children at Seawind. Everyone seems friendly and our children are happpy there.
My son has attended Kindergarten at Seawind this year. I cannot speak highly enough about his teacher, Ms. Kapalko. She really cares about her students, challenges them with their work and is creative and fun with their assignments. Overall, I have found the staff to always be helpful and available. We are moving away this summer and I am sad to leave this wonderful school.
I have 2 children at Sea Wind and I find the teachers are great. They definitely care about the students and their achievements. I am unhappy with the new principal, Mr. Green, and feel he lacks compasion and makes assumptions without truly hearing all the facts. Mrs. Marder, the Vice Principal on the other hand is kind, caring, understanding, listens and takes immediate action when needed. Wish she was the principal!
This school was fantastic for my child. They have changed principals and vice pricnciples in the last two years but it was fantastic all the way around. Great communication, teachers were excellent, after school activities were great. I loved the experience my daughter will take with her for the rest of her life. I loved its location, and I loved the ability to volunteer as much as you wanted and they cared about it. This school is top notch.
My daughter has been a Sea Wind for 3 years now and it has been a good experience but that will only happen if you participate and are responsible for your child's success. Much of the school year seems to be geared around learning the FCAT prep instead of actual learning, but I do not think that is the fault of the school. I think if you want your child to succeed at this school, you have to insist on conferences, understand that much is expected of young children and be ready and willing to pick up the slack at home.
I am more than pleased with the staff at Sea Wind. All of the teachers and administrators are genuinely interested in helping each child succeed to the best of their ability!
My son attended kindergarten this past year. I was skeptical at first. Mrs. Bryant challenged both Daniel and I with assignments and descriptive projects. He now takes on his homework positively and is looking toward being a gifted child next year. It has been hard work but well worth it and I thank Mrs. Bryant and the supportive SeaWind Elementary staff. My son cares for the office staff, music, PE, art, computer and media, and science staff. Thank you SeaWind. :0)
