This school is great... For vpk and kindergarten, their teachers are incredible. After that, if you want your child to be behind in math, have zero communication, and be treated as if you are ludicrous for voicing any concerns about anything, then this is the school for you! There is no gym, hardly any student activities, and they enforce odd consequences ( ie: "working lunches" if 6 year olds don't finish their work fast enough) that are not in the student handbook. Save your money, the public schools are far superior.

I had a problem when I first started this school. The teachers were great in 3rd grade! But 4th grade not so much and in 5th grade and 6th. This year we would ask many things on emails and some of the teachers never wrote back, I got bullied and it still hasn't stopped , and some days I was out of school because I was sick or other things and when im out people hand in their homework when I can't hand my homework in since im not in school and the next day I came back I looked at my grades on my computer and my teacher counted the homework that I didn't turn in as a 50. But it wasn't my fault that I couldn't turn it in. I was at home being sick. It even gets very cold in the school even when it's winter time and kids ask the teachers to make it a little bit warmer in the room and the teachers leave it how it was because they want it that way cause they are comfortable. But I love our principal and the people that work in the front office. My education is still not reaching of where I want it to be in this school. Im going to imagine next year!

Our son had great teachers for VPK and Kindergarten. We kept him in for a bit longer after that, but he began slipping in math. They also have policies that are not written in the handbook that they enforce. If you request such things not be done or question anything, you are informed that you need to watch yourself or you will be asked to leave the school by the principal. It is a school, for which we were paying, and not a totalitarian dictatorship. It is a shame, because we wanted our son to have the Catholic education we did, but not with such leadership and a curriculum that is not even close to public schools. I gave it two stars for our past teachers.

We have been associated with this school since my oldest son attended kindergarten, he is now a Junior in high school. The school has had some bad times in the past. We are avid volunteers and are very involved with our children. Now that we have a new principle we could not be any happier. I still have a first grader and seventh grader in this this school and would never switch. The teachers are amazing and my son is in advanced math and reading. The new principle has turned this school around 360 degrees. We are technologically above most, academically better than most. If you are looking to put your child/children in a caring, well rounded and academically challenging spiritual environment, go for a tour. I can say you will be impressed. When your children say they like to go to school, that speaks for itself. Especially a seventh grader. Go check it out, you will be glad you did.

I am so excited that my daughter will start 2nd grade in this school after taking her out of Belle Terre because of a teacher bullying her and administration had no concerns over my daughters feelings and my stress. This school is above grade level and the staff is very friendly and caring. I have only heard good things from students attending this school cant wait!

My children have attended this school for many years and I am disgusted at how this school has gone down hill. Everyday is a soap opera and the teaching is definitely not what it used to be. So many of us have had to hire tutors just to compensate for the lack of education at the school. The principal is very arrogant and it is not what I would call a good Christian setting...so sad.

I could not be happier (and neither could my child) with the learning environment and opportunities at SEASCS. The staff creates a strong, caring community feeling and since the teachers aren't hampered by state/FCAT requirements, they can be creative in their teaching. For a small school, it is amazing how many opportunites there are for extra-curricular activities as well as special area classes during the school day. The new principal is very inviting and involved. We love the school!!!!

St. Elizabeth offers a challenging learning enviornment that encourages high expectations for success. The entire staff is truely committed to nurturing high self-esteem and respect for others by fostering positive relationships between the teachers and the students. This school strongly encourages parent involvement and the communication between the class room and the home is exceptional. The new principal is phenomenal as well as respected!! He is involved in all aspects of the school and is dedicated to ensure that SEASCS provides a quality education in addition to strengthening and enhancing the values students first acquire in their homes. My son is currently attending his fifth year at St. Elizabeth and we are delighted to be a part of such an outstanding & caring family atmosphere.

We have two children enrolled at SEAS and we couldn't be happier. The school's administration is excellent led by a terrific new Principal and a host of wonderful teachers. The student-to-teacher ratio is excellent compared with the public schools which have thousands of kids. We know everyone, everyone knows our children. Our kids are people not numbers and they get lots of personal attention and instruction. We have friends with children in the public schools and they have told us that the SEAS curriculum is at least one, if not potentially 2-3 academic years ahead of the public schools.

SEAS is school that far exceeds expectations. It is a school where students feel they are part of a family, not just a number. The teachers take a genuine interest in each student and go far beyond job teaching requirements creating a "want to learn" environment for students. Having had other children who attended public schools in Flager County, the academic and social benefits gained by my son, currently enrolled, is second to none in our area.

By far, the most excellent K-8 education available in Flagler County. High performing curriculum that teaches to the higher denominator not to the lowest. Dedicated teachers, small classes, top technology and media labs, music, P.E. etc. Plus it is a Jesus centric Catholic education.

St. Elizabeth is a wonderful catholic school. Without question, the best school in this area. My daughter has been attending SEASCS since mid kindergarten. I took her out of Belle Terre elementary due to the lack of control the teacher had over the class, and the public schools requiring to teach to pass the FCAT. I am totally against the FCAT, IOWA is fine-that's what SEASCS uses. My daughter's reading is very fluent, math skills and writing skills are above average. Learing in the classroom is definitely taking place. Additionally, the structure and discipline is second to none. We could'nt be happier. The faculty is warm and geniune. These people love teaching children and the kids feel it.

Beware, Very unhappy with the teachers. They were not child friendly. Lack the skills needed to teach simple math. A smile on the outside does not mean a happy class.

EASCS has the best learning environment a parent could ask for. Teachers are devoted to help students excell. Students come out with a solid foundation in academics as well as life skills, especially values, which are so rare to find in today's youth.
