My twins have excelled at this school. Leaving Egg Harbor Twp schools was a great decision : )

Seaview is an excellent school with devoted loving teachers and a caring, involved principal. My kids have been at Seaview from preschool to 4th grade, and I haven't met a bad teacher yet. Excellent child study team. Active PTO and Education Foundation that provide classroom technology and extra programming. Best school in the area!

We just moved to the area with only one month left of the school year. The transition could not have been smoother for my 1st grade daughter thanks to the excellent teachers and principal. The quality of learning in this school is unsurpassed in my opinion; night and day from the school we moved from.

This is a fabulous school. The class size is small, the teachers are fabulous, and the work is challenging. This is by far the best elementary school in the county.

You couldn't find a better elementary school. We have two children in the school. The teachers are thoughtful, caring and at the top of their game. Parent involvement is huge. The school is on the cutting-edge technology wise.

Amazing parental involvement -- committed teachers and an inspired principal make this a school to reckon with. The education and environment created are both supportive and challenging -- it makes the taxes we pay worth it!

This is my child's first year at Seaview and I have had nothing but good things to say about Seaview. I think it is an excellent school!

This is a very small community school, not deversified in any way. This is a good school for the county, but not the best we have attended. The school has quality teachers. The Christmas music program caters to one specific faith. This is noted over two years. The school does fundraising beyond the extent of a public school. This is an OK school for the area.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
