Since kindergartern the administration and staff has does everything they could to help our son learn to read. They allowed a private tutor to come into the school for 3 years. The best part was helping us learn the process to get help for our son. We will be forever grateful.
My main complaint about this school was the treatment of the students by the administration and teachers. I found their attitude towards us as dismissive. Although these individuals were placed in charge of my class and me, I think that they were unwilling to listen to our opinions and voice in matters. I've been out of SEAS for a few years, so looking back, I realize that my class put the administration in a bad position. Our class had discipline problems, but to our credit, many of the teachers weren't fully able to deal with disciplining us. I can only hope that SEAS can hire quality teachers from now on.
I just reviewed the feedback so far for SEAS and was surprised and compelled to give my 2 cents. I love this school/church and have rarely heard negativity about the school from the other parents I know! It is strict but my kids have had a great and yes, fun experience so far. My kids have had excellent teachers. Our family is in fact moving out of the boundaries to be in the country, but have decided to make the drive to keep sending our kids to this school. SEAS is an A+ school in my opinion!
Not all schools are for everyone... I have a son currently attending Seas as well as a daughther. My son is miserable and my daughter content. If your child is tolerant of excessively strict behavior and not needing a relaxing bit of each day in terms of freedom to be a child or freedom to be wacky every once in a while this is definately not the school for you.
