The campus is a bit odd and depressing - almost seems like a trailer park community the way the buildings are configured. The teachers are as sweet as can be -- but the academics are not so strong and there are too many bullies that get away with atrocious behavior due to parent/donor politics.

I have had both my kids at Seacrest since we moved to the Naples area many years ago. It is not only an academically challenging environment, but also an environment where my kids have flourished and grown into responsible, capable, intellectually curious, and fearless young adults. I have read a few short-sighted comments here that state this school is only good for kids with low self-esteem. I couldn't disagree more. All students can benefit from a school that empowers kids to use their minds and to focus on what is truly important in life. Seacrest is simply a place that fosters a great environment for those who want to learn, who want to build lasting friendships, who want to grow as individuals and find their passions in life. If you are looking for the school that spends the most money to have the fanciest athletic fields in town, then one or two area schools have them beat. But if you are looking for a school where your kids can really expand their minds, grow, and learn, then there is no better place than Seacrest.

We love Seacrest. We are very fortunate to have found this school for our daughter. We had her in the other Private school in Naples and quickly removed her. Seacrest by far offers the total package for early education.

I would highly recommend the school. My Grandson attended for five years and Graduated. The school really helped him achieve his potential and he states "everyone there is my friend". My only negative's are recognition seems to be based more on subjective rather than objective criteria and papers are not returned to students with comments after repeated requests. I ask how is this a total learning experience?

As a former student of this amazing school i have nothing but great things to say about it. The school has exeptional teachers. There are no bullies at this school. The students are wonderful to each other.I went here for 8 years and my older sister went for 10 and we both love it. Asking for help if you were behind was not a problem at all. The curriculum was perfect. the food was hand delivered. The best teacher there teaches P-K her name is Mrs. Meranto. She was nuturing and loving and she always had a smile on her face. This school gave me all the help that I ever needed. I love this school and if you miss any days the nuturing teachers help you get cought up. I love this school and recamend it for all ages!

My daughter began at Seacrest Country Day School in Pre-K and is graduating this June. She just recieved her acceptance letter to Barnard College, and she will be attending next year fully prepared to do whatever she choses with her future. She bases her success on the principals and true love of learning that she aquired at this amazing school. Seacrest Country Day School was the best investment in my daughter's future that I have ever made.

Seacrest has been fantastic for my three kids! My oldest started in second grade and graduated from high school last year very prepared for college. She has learned to be a caring leader, involved in sports and activities that wouldn't be possible in a large public school. The academics are very challenging but the teachers are motivating and want the kids to succeed. She has great friends of all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. She is respectful of adults because of her close relationship with teachers. My other two have had the same amazing experiences. We highly recommend Seacrest.

First year and about to withdrawal our child out of school. Not friendly to Latins and specially new students that come from schools that academics exceeds theirs! I will not recommend this school at least for elementary, the staff is nice and friendly, but beware of unfriendly and not friendly to parents teachers!!!!! Where do they come from? They should be rated by the students....... I wonder what their ratings might be!!!!! We will be withdrawing our child from this school by the end of fall! They need to revisit their staff and remind them that they are educators and should also have compassion for children and excellent communication with the parents

This is an amazing institution with a superior balance between a loving and creative atmosphere as well as a rigorous curriculum. Our combined 5 grades of experience has been nothing short of exceptional. Without reservation we would highly recommend this school.

There is only one reason that I would send my child to this school, or keep them in this school if they were already there: that would be if they had issues with low self-esteem. This school might be about what they need in that case. But if you want true academic emphasis in all subject areas and real academic achievement--especially in mathematics and the "hard" high-school sciences, this is not the school for you (or for your child). There's a so much better choice just "up the road" a bit.

Exceptional school with qualified and caring staff. My children love the school and the extra curricular activities. Teachers involve parents and keep you up to date as to everything that is going on with your children. The atmosphere is diverse and allows for creativity and the values that will stay with the children through adulthood. I am very happy to have made the right choice. I wouldn't give up this experience for anything in the world. It makes both myself and my children very happy.

Our children have attended, both,private and public schools. They have attended Seacrest for nearly five years spanning 3rd grade through 10th grade between the two of them. Seacrest is a notch above. Seacrest has extremely qualified teachers with a college prep curriculum; yet, it continues a caring helpful attitude to both students and parents.

Wonderful school, the addition of Mandarin to the Pre-K thru 3 curriculum has been amazing. Very open environment, we are encouraged to participate. Sports programs are growing, this school is going places!

Amazing school, so warm, but still academically superior to anything we have seen in Naples. Our son has been here since Pre-K and he absolutely loves it. Language studies since Pre-K, computer labs, art, music, wonderful teachers, administration that is in tune with the students and so much more. We can't wait for our daughter to start here and be embraced in the warmth that is Seacrest!

This is how a school should be. Creative teaching and learning-kids are taught to think outside the box. Curriculum is challenging and instructors are well qualified and actively engage students in the learning process.

The school has good elemtary and middle school staff. Sports, art and performance are encouraged and every child can participate inthis small, private school. Parents are encouraged to participate. My sons went there for K-8 and have a good soldi foundation.
