Formerly, the school phone system offered an option to connect directly to the principal. She actually answered much of the time. If not, she responded promptly to messages left. Currently the only phone option is to the administrative office. The principal is rarely available to take calls, which are now screened. Return call requests go unheeded unless one leaves repeated messages. Quality of faculty generally remains outstanding, but for such a small school this deterioration in access to the principal is certainly not a positive step.

sns is the worst school i've ever been to. i went there for two years and couldn't take it anymore. most of the teachers are nice but there are about 3 that pick favorites every year and then bully the rest. the principal was a complete joke and did nothing. the Spanish teacher spent to much time smoking and showing us pictures of his "home land" to even teach us Spanish. i am warning all of you. STAY AWAY FROM SEASIDE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL!

I was very disappointed in the SNS. The small class size did not aloow for individuallity. If you did't fit their 'mold' you were chastized. Many of the teachers have students at the school and this creates a unhealthy environment. I have never heard teachers speak so unkindly to students over that past three years. Academically it in OK but in need of an overhaul from Adminstration to Board of Director to teachers. Great concept that is stale.

I attend Seaside and it is by far my favorite school I have ever been to! This is my last year at Seaside and I don't think anything could replace this amazing experience. I love SNS!

My daughter has waited to attempt to be selected for Seaside Neighborhood School since 3rd grade. She so looked forward to attempting to attend this school. The students that she knew who attended were extremely well-balanced and full of self esteem, something that is taught by 'osmosis' at this school. Each student maintains the highest respect for themselves and their fellow students. I feel extremely fortunate in that she was selected to attend. We had to hold our breath as the lottery system is implemented thereby giving all who apply a fair and equal chance of being selected for attendance. So far, this school has already far exceeded itself in what I only imagined it to be..it is far, far more. Count me, one happpy parent. And count my daughter one happy student.

Most of the staff really cares about the students. It's such a small and intimate setting, my child felt safe and comfortable the 3 years there. If your child has the opportunity to attend, sign up!

Seaside Neighborhood school offers private education in the public sector. The students are introduced to a wide variety of elective subjects. The atmosphere created by the facility and staff is a heartfelt warm and caring one that illuminates to the student body.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

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.
