The attention to student's needs and a strong sense of the value of learning crically to problem solve rather than rote makes this one of the most positive schools I have ever expereienced. I wish I could have gone to a school like this as an adolecent; I would have been much better prepared to deal with life and be a more effective citizen of this place we call earth.

This is a great school. Class sizes are small, and there is great rapport between the students and teachers. Students are encouraged to try different activities in junior high so they can find their passions. The sports teams are really improving.

If your children excell in sports, you probably want to send them to a large school for more exposure. But if you are looking for academics and especially for college preparation, there is no better school. What is unique in this school is the rapport between students of all grade levels, 7-12, and between faculty/administration and students. Everyone is treated with respect and that develops the students into responsible, hard-working and thinking individuals.

Bishop Seabury is a great school. The teachers are all respected and the students have a great connection with them. The academics are great too. They don't have a ton of options, but they are getting more flexible and are expanding after school programs. It's just an overall great school.

This school is very small and does not have a lot of options! They have a lot of unnecessary rules. The academics aren't that great, either! The parents are very minimally involved!

The academic at Bishop Seabury are excellent. The school has award winning sports teams and music programs. Parents are very involved in activities from fundraisers to fun suprises. This is a wonderful school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
