I am a graduate of the SEAS class of 2015. I am keeping my name to myself to for privacy. I was not impressed with the SEAS experience. I came from Sacred Heart 3 years ago and when the schools merged and I was welcomed. However, I feel this welcome has turned sour. I loved SEAS in my 6th and 7th grade years, but in the 8th grade year it felt, to be honest, that the principal cleaned house and changed many, many things. I dislike her reaaranging of faculty, that separated my class from most of our 7th grade teachers (2 teachers left, to be fair). From the first day of school last September, I have felt that sour taste. I saw the discipline system crumble as demerits were abandoned in favor of "yellow lights". I remember the threats of teachers with demerits, yellow lights don't have the same ring to it. In addition, I feel that religious education was downright pitiful. For my 6th and 7th grade years, and those at Sacred Heart too, we received terrible education because religion class was seen as a garbage class that you could skate through. I was very happy to see an actual religion teacher who cared. I didn't love her, I must say, but I really did see a difference. On the education front, the Spanish classes were terrible. I know that not a single person actually cared about that class and we wasted 3 classes a week fooling around during the lectures. Some studied for other classes, others twidled their thumbs and others literally threw objects around the classroom, that's not a joke. I would also like to say that I didn't feel the principal took our class seriously. I remember how she praised other classes and visited them all the time, and I only saw her in our class twice before June, and both were to scold us. I believe excellence flows down, and it pains me to say this, but it didn't. I must comment on Mrs. Reynolds comment, she is right, many of the teachers and faculty really do care but I believe SEAS has hit rough times. I do agree with another person that the migration of people to Kellenberg is a problem. I say these things as a warning, not a judgement. I did love SEAS, but it's hit hard times and needs change, so that's why I'm here. To any people who are debating to send their children here, I would highly suggest SEAS.

My name is Lisa Tuminello-Reynolds and am the proud parent to my forever 13 year old son Thomas. Thomas entered nursery school in the loving arms of his teacher. (Literally) He flourished with the warm and compassionate teachers, as well as, the wonderful guidance of his principal, Ms Graziose. Ms. Graziose and all of the teachers wrapped their arms around Thomas, and my whole family. Despite Thomas' illness, he always felt a part of something beautiful. He always felt loved by everyone in the school. The teachers worked with us every step of Thomas' journey. I'm proud that SEAS is still our family. Our principal is hard working, loving, and dedicated to her school and her students. I personally believe it's cowardly to bash ur child's school and then won't attach a name to ur complaint. Simply cowardly! I thank God everyday, that my son, was part of SEAS and their wonderful community.. Thomas' friends and classmates, as well as, their families are some of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They were part of Thomas' life and they still continue to be part of ours. Ms. Graziose and staff, I will forever be grateful for everything u have done.

I honestly don't even know where to begin. There is virtually no discipline. The kids all curse like sailors... The Principal lets the parents dictate how the children will be disciplined... we have a running joke in my house when my child comes home from school. "Do you have any homework?" and the answer is always the same "NO" The school doubled in size two years ago when another catholic school merged with it, but kids are leaving in droves!!! My child's class is losing NINE kids this year. When a class loses NINE kids in one year you gotta ask why ? And they are all going to a school that costs TWICE as much. What are you doing that people would rather pay twice as much to go someplace else ? UGH.

I regret sending my child to SEAS. I liked some of the teachers in the Kindergarten and First grade, but the rest were short tempered and down right mean. There is one teacher who constantly taught material to her class incorrectly. The principal seems friendly at first , but has no control over the bullying going on in her school. She is friendly to parents as long as they benefit her school. Children of working parents who can't spend every breathing moment up at the school are not a priority. Parents spend your hard earned money at some other school. You've been warned!

I would not recommend this school. Teachers have inappropriate expectations for students and they aren't nuturing. Besides parent-teacher conferences there is no communication between parents and teachers. My child was taken out of the school. During my quest for finding another school I saw other schools with more computers and smartboards in the classroom and the environments were friendlier and warmer. This was a very disappointing experience. I agree with one of the other reviews. I also have no regrets pulling my child out of SEAS.

SEAS is home.Our family has been attending SEAS for 9 years with my oldest graduating last year.She was so well prepared,she not only got into her 3 Catholic high school choices-she recieved scholorship incentives to attend them.My other children are thriving in this nurturing environment that is led by a fearless leader.Our principal has dedicated her entire life(and her heart and soul)to ensuring each child under that roof is educated,loved and feels like they are part of the SEAS family. Our school is truley amazing,because we have a leader who isnt afraid to put the children first!As for the rest of the staff,they are exceptional as well.There has never been a day that I have regreted sending my children to what has become their second home.Thank you to our principal,faculty,children and parents for being so collectively involved in all of our childrens education!

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional School not only prepares students for high school, it prepares students for life! The excellent staff of educatiors promote and enhance each student's emotional, spiritual, educational and social growth. The school offers a special personal touch, bar none. Each individual student is challenged and encouraged not only to do his/her best, but to display respectable behavior. The values that are reinforced each and every day are those which we want our children to have as adults in our diverse society. The coursework is challenging and there are many extra curricular activities to choose from. The school offers: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grade soccer, basketball, softball and baseball; choir; chorus; drama club; student council; National Junior Honor Society and band. There are also many classrooms equipped with SMART board technology. In addition, they have Spanish for grades Pre-K-8, have a fully equipped Science Laboratory, offer a Algebra Regents class for advanced math students, and are Middle States Accredited.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton offers a variety of extra curriculum activities as well as a full day of Gospel values incorporated with a strong New York State core curriculum. The parents, teachers, and students are a supporting and knowledgable family. The Principal offers great leadership and Catholic Identity. Our school's technology is up to date and completes a positive learning environment for all! We foster sportsmanship and TEAM SPIRIT throughout all grade levels. We feature a sports program that includes soccer, basketball, and baseball. SEAS even has a great drama and choir program exemplifying the many gifts and talents of our students. SEAS is one heart, one community sharing many gifts and talents to create a better future of leaders!

The youngest of my two children is graduating from this school in June. After eleven years of being affiliated with St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional school, I can unequivocally state that my children received an outstanding academic education which was reinforced with the same religious and moral values that we practice at home. The atmosphere at this school is warm and friendly and it really becomes a second family. The principal dedicates her life to this school. She is all about her students and the affection they have for her is evidence of this. There are plenty of after-school activities for the students, such as School Play, Student Council, Astronauts Club, Choir, Basketball, Baseball, Softball and Soccer, just to name a few. In addition, there are co-curricular activities, such as National Junior Honor Society, Choir and Band.

I don't beleive any school is perfect. There will always be a teacher that you don't care for or a policy that you don't agree with, but I believe the entire intitution as a whole must be evaluated. This school offers outstanding academics, a sense of fairness and the feel of a family. They have an impressive amount of students that qualifed and were accepted in National Junior Honor Society. They have back to back Regis Scholorship winners. Most importantly while there you observe students that are well behaved and more importantly happy.

My child attended St Eliz Ann Seton for 3 years I was not 100 % happy with the school. New principal was wonderful. Very personable and approachable. I thought the ciriculum for my daughters' years attending SEAS was too easy and was confirmed after I transfered her out to attend public school. It took my daughter almost one school year to get caught up to her peers in public school and to be an A-B student without any issues---- less the tution.

This school is worth every penny! Sending my child to SEAS is the easiest decision I ever made. Not only is kindness & respect taught, it is given. The children are all special here & parent involvement is requested & appreciated. Every year the extracurricular activities increase & music, art, sports, & computers are scheduled weekly. Our principal is just amazing & has done so much for the school in just a few years. It will only get better as she is constantly finding ways to improve - even running a marathon to raise money for special projects. All grades have been testing very high & the children are really responding to the challenges.

This school has givin my child growth... The only thing that I feel that the school should provide more of is.... Tutoring a child who is weak in an area... One day a week dont cut it and the teacher needs to look at this problem. We pay high tution and we should get extra help from the school itself not the district. My children love the school. The teachers are great and principle is a charm, but.... They really should see some weakness in this area. Extra help... And at no extra cost to the parents.
