The teachers in this school are living in a bubble, thinking that the school is wonderful. The test scores have dropped significantly over the past few years. Advanced students are leaving and are no longer able to prop the scores up. Middle schoolers are being read to on a regular basis. Many students who have left require tutors to catch up. Opportunities to enhance education for the students have been discounted.

Enrolling my children at SCS was the best academic decision we have made. Bloom's Taxonomy is alive and thriving within the walls of SCS. Children are being asked to think, create, listen, teach, explore and analyze every day. They meet as a school community every Friday morning to talk about what they have learned, share music, songs and knowledge. My children have had gifted teachers who have brought out the best n them. I have witnessed five year olds working together as an ensemble and third, fourth and fifth graders taking their strings performance more seriously than many high school ensembles. What the teachers do for and with these kids is inspiring. We could not be happier.

The school really changed within the past year. There was poor organization and management, staffing issues, and much of the original success of the school has been compromised. Hopefully a new administrator and higher standards (such as all teachers being certified to teach) could restore this school's success but it may take awhile. Some of the faculty are outstanding and have great credentials.

Our school is changing this year. We have a new principal, a larger student body, and a new class structure. Previously, we had blended classes: 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 5th and 6th, 7th and 8th together. All my kids really enjoyed that. This year the classes will be separated, more like a 'regular' school. We shall have to see if we still like it as well.

We love this school. The teachers are so dedicated to their profession and really care about the kids. Their approach to discipline is to talk things out with the students rather than the usual write up or detention that does not have a big effect. Children are in a much more relaxed environment. The arts and music programs are excellent. They need more funding from the State and Federal goverment to continue providing the excellent education.

When we moved back east from MN, my child was in a charter school there, so we made sure we lived close to this school becuase the methods used to teach in this school were the most beneficial to my childs learning experience. Our decision was the right one as time told. Great faculty/teachers that really care about making in impact in my childs education. I'm glad to say that my child even with her learning diability is thriving in Seacoast Charter school and loves to go to school.

This a a great public school alternative. They promote individuality in both academics and the arts. It's a great home for my children.

The school has provide an enviroment that children can thrive in. Intergrated art and music with core academics. The classes are set up so, if your child needs more help or more of a challenge it is available. Spanish is taught starting in the 1sr grade. In 3rd grade they pick the cello, violin,or viola for their music instrument. Art not only teaches the basics of drawing but introduces ancient cultures. Science is taught through projects and expreriments. Science Fairs,Music concerts, and a Shakesphere play are just some of the wonderful things going on in this school. The teachers and head of school are top notch. They have a true passion for teaching.
