I cannot begin to describe how wonderful this school is. My parents sent me here for K-8 and I absolutely loved it. The teachers and principal care about the students and if they are on track with their learning. The Catholic education is an excellent part of the curriculum. Mother Seton is a wonderful place for a child to grow and learn.

Mother Seton Catholic School has it all--S.T.E.M., arts and music, prayer, community service, extracurricular clubs...the list goes on and on. My three children each have different interests, and there is something for each of them here. The teachers and staff are friendly, approachable, and love the students--you can just tell! There is a spirit here I didn't feel in the other schools we looked at. It's more like a family here than just "school". I'm already feeling anxious about my oldest graduating because I don' t know if we'll find a high school with as much character, one that will make her feel like she belongs the way MSS does.

Warm and inviting. Academically and spiritually focused on the whole child. The teachers are magnificent and provide extensive one-on-one attention to the students. My three children transferred here from another Catholic school in the area and have absolutely thrived here!

Mother Seton provides a loving environment with lots of family support. The teachers really view their jobs as a vocation and it shows in all that they do. They are enthusiastic and their passion for learning and their commitment to their faith is obvious in all they do. I cannot say enough good things about how dedicated the principal and all of the staff are to the mission of the school. My children absolutely love this school. All of the parents are friendly and it really is like one, big family.

Some teachers use their power to intimidate students. Feedback from parents are not really welcome.

Communication is lacking from some of the upper grade teachers. Science teacher is amazing. Principal ignores parent concerns.

MSS is a great school! It is very child oriented with lots of focus on families. The expection is of good behavior, academic achievement, all within a loving, supportive environment.

The academic program is great, the kids are so nice and well-behaved, the parents chip in with extra projects to support the school, they have various green facilities to teach conservation and environmental stewardship, the principal is a doll, and they're all-around active in the community. They'd always get my vote!

Mother Seton School is right on the mark when it comes to providing a positive learning environment for children. There's discipline in this school, yet love abounds. This is the way a school should be run. They care about the students and it shows. The good attitude starts at the top at Mother Seton School with Sister Mary Catherine, the principal - and it trickles all the way down to the students, who seem happy to be there. My two sons love the school - and we're very pleased as well.

As a first time mother of a Kindergartener, Mother Seton has made this very scary experience a pleasurable one for me! I drive a hour each way for my child to attend this school. He has had a fantastic year and is learning an overwhelming amount of information. I am very happy!!
