Very clean and state of the art equipment and facilities. Very warm and friendly teachers and staff. College and university enrollment outperforms many other schools. The principle Rich Bucci is doing a great job.

Small, involved and individual learning. We transferred in, have always had decent grades but now are being taught to analyze, examine and evaluate instead of teaching to the test. I am a graduate who watched in dismay as the image of the school shifted. Mr. Bucci is changing the image of the school in a positive way, and arts and academics are stellar. I transferred my teen and it was the best decision I've made.

This school is the definition of welfare. The school uses donated books and materials from the public schools. The walls and ceilings are lined with lung killing asbestos. I can't express my hate for the school through text. I am so happy I am now moving to another school. The school is old and outdated with non sense practices such as no cellphones or they will keep it until 3pm the next day. This school is not very structured and the staff try to act professional and fail at doing so. The school is a complete joke

I feel as though my experience was more than just education in the sense of schooling, but also helped develop students into decent human beings.

As a graduate of this school I feel I received an excellant education. After Seton I went onto Broome CC and was much further along compared to other students from public schools. The personal interest the teachers took in me to ensure that I succeeded has made me the success I am today.

I am a former student and attended SCC. The math and science programs prepared me for my engineering program at one of the toughest engineering schools in the country. I am now a successful businessman in the Semiconductor industry and owe much of my success to my education at Seton.

I recently graduated from SCC as well, and can say that it was the best time of my life. At Seton, you're not just a school, you're a family. When they say there is no opportunities at our catholic schools, it is far from the truth. The lower number of students gives them more oppurtunitites than to just be left out of the crowd or washed out by the large numbers at the public schools. Ms. Kathleen Dwyer, is one of the greatest, and most outstanding principles in the area, and has everything there is to make the school awesome.

I graduated from Seton a few years back. I am very greatful my parents decided to put me through private schools. The only problem some parents may have is that they shelter the kids from the real world. I never witnessed any drug use or fighting on school grounds. I now live across country and have a step daughter in middle school and I see what goes on in public schools at even younger ages now. The teachers were all wonderful and would stay after school with you if you needed help. If you failed a test, they were there to help you. I do think the dress code was a little too strict. If I lived there still, I would send my child there.

I am an alumni of SCCHS and am very dissapointed with the education I recieved. Many parents alike are now sending their children to public schools because of the rising costs and loss of programs and values at this school. Sports, teachers, classes etc are being ereased from the picture. The teachers hired to teach are just as upset as the parents and have no desire to teach. They claim to have a 99% rate of students going on to college after graduation but almost half of that never actually make it because of the lack of critical courses that are mandatory for college entry. I will never send my children here.

This school has very high standards and teaches our children about morals and what can happen if you don't walk ,talk, and act in the way God has spelled out for us. My two children went to a public school for over 8 years and taking them out of the public school was the best thing that ever happened to them. Seton is not anywhere close to dealing with the politics in the public school. Every school has good and bad, but the Catholic school is nowhere close to having the problems we had to deal with in the public schools. Have the time in the public schools my kids were goofing off or watching movies. I am very proud of Seton and am thankful that my children are there!

This school is based on nothing but politics. It's suppose to be a catholic school with good christian morals. I think the administration should start living up to the basis of what it was founded on.
