Very good school. I have to kids in K and 1st grades, and both teachers are great, attentive, and my girls are learning a lot. Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Alston deserve a lot of credit.

We love Seaborn Lee. The principal Dr. Massey is one of the best. She is one of the best leaders we have ever encountered. She makes wonderful educational decisions for the school as well as great healthy decisions. The teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful to the students. The teachers make a wonderful effort to work with the parents to make sure the students are successful.

My children attended S. Lee for the first time this school term and I am more than pleased with the school. In my opinion the balance between academics and extra curricular is equal. As far as teachers go, they vary. My daughter had two teachers this year, one was awesome, the other really shouldn't be working with children, she should be a prison warden! The principal is awesome and unlike others I've encountered, she seems to really care about the students.

So far, I am extremely disappointed with Seaborn Lee Elementary. I had originally thought about homeschooling my child and now I wish I had. The curriculum is not challenging and the majority of the teachers are not friendly. As a parent, I expect to have input at my child's school but the teachers give off the fasade that they know more and the parents should not interfere with that. No teacher knows a child better than the parent no matter what your degree may state. The secretary is always friendy and the principal has potential but she needs to get her staff to understand that in order for a school to run efficiently the parents are the heart of the school.

The school seem to stress more on extra-curriculum activities. They cram the students with information. I think the use the students for the personal gain of a good impression for the school and students do not benefit or get the acknowlegement. The curriculm is not rigid there are time when students (4th & 5th) grades come home with one sheet or no homework at all. Too much unprofessoinalism from the teachers (personal business and comments to students) The teachers do not have the support of the administrative staff. The TAG program is a joke it is not challenging at all. The secretary is not aware of events, situations or happenings in the building, although she is always polite and smiling and willing to find out the information. The schools seems to seek recognition that benefits administration as oppose to the students. There were many inconsistencies of the staff/faculty/activities offered.

I am not really impressed with this school coming from a Gwinnett county public school. Few teacher are motivated. As a parent who thrives on helping my child with the assisance of her teachers it has become very difficult, private schooling may be the next best alternative.

There is way too much emphasis on the extra-curricular programs and not enough focus on general studies. I am not pleased with the leadership of this school at all; there is extremely too much disorganization going on throughout the year.

I can only wish that I could have attended a school like S. Lee when I was a child. The love and commitment from the teachers and staff is stupendous. I am very pleased that my children were able to experience this wonderful place. From a second grader's point of view he loved voyager and success maker. His enthusiasm everyday about his learning new things made me feel like it was better than good. Funding for other programs wasn't at the highest that I can remember. I think there had to be cut-backs. The teachers and staff still all pulled together and planned activities for the children afterschool. As a parent I wish that I could have been involved more. I think a parent-liason would have been a good idea. That would have helped me to understand what I could have been doing more of.

I was very impressed with the school academically, as well as administratively. I do wish that the school had a more african-centered focus, since more that 95% of the students are of african ancestry, but as i say academically, I believe the school to be sound. I think that the teachers do a great deal with what they have to work with. I do wish that we could get smaller class size regularly, however. That is a big drawback--i think that the class size swell over the course of the year, and would love to see the class size in the lower grades at 18:2. Pipedream, I know, but I believe that would be worthy goal for all concerned. Overall, though I give the school high marks.

Although test scores are good at Seaborn Lee, teachers are not appreciated nor do they receive the amount of support needed from administration. This school has great teachers but poor leadership.
