Extremely supportive school for kids with learning deficits. Currently facing fiscal pressure and very political BOE. This has resulted in drop in academic standards as well as decline in standards!
My daughter started K last week. The little girl brought back home a little gift from the teacher, with a note, which thrilled both me and wife. No more words needed for the rating. I quote: We are looking forward to a wonderful Kindergarten year! This bag contains a few things important reminders... The COTTON BALL is to remind you that our room is always filled with kind words and warm feelings. The STICKER is to remind you that we need to stick together and help each other. The RUBBER BAND is to remind you to hug your family each morning before you come to school. The STAR is to remind you to shine and to always try your best. The PIPE CLEANER is to remind you to be flexible. The BAND-AID is to remind you to say kind things and help heal hurt feelings in your friends and yourself. The TISSUE is to remind you to help someone who is having a bad day and help dry their tears. The RIBBON is to remind you that friendship tie our hearts together. The ERASER is to remind you that everyone makes mistakes, and that is okay. The PENNY is to remind you that you are valuable and special like a shiny new coin, and I am lucky to have you in my class. ENJOY! Love,

Seely Place School is not only number 1 in Westchester County, but I would consider them as Nation Best Schools. Excellent Teaching Staff who pays undivided attention to each child and brings best out of them. It would be undermining, if I do not praise the efforts of PTA and after school Programs. The variety show and the science fair encourages all the kids for their wholesome personality development. No doubt, Seely Place School, Edgemont School District is the best.
Seely Place is quite honestly the most wonderful school I have ever had the privilege to be in! It provides a nurturing, safe and fun place to learn for the children. The principal is a fabulous administrator and each and every teacher cares about the children and his/her job. As an educator, I have seen many schools and this one is the best! Our son transitioned mid school year last year, everyone made sure his move was smooth and that he was welcomed. He has truly blossomed under the care and supervision of the Seely Place staff.
Edgemont was ranked one of the top 3 school districts (rural) in the US in US New and World Report Magazine. My son has some learning issues and with their support and small class settings he was able to graduate an A/B student and get into his #1 college. He went to Seely Place elementary which was a school I wish I had gone to in my youth. It just doesn't get any better than Edgemont. I chose it for the schools and The NY Times had called it 'Scarsdale, but low keyed'. Great that Jr and High School located on the same campus so kids don't have to get reaclamated at a new high school. His graduating class was just over 100 students which was also a plus so kids don't get lost amongst a huge student body. It will be the best gift you give your kids/family.
My daughter has been at Seely place since kindergarden. Seely is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. He is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing him everyday as my daughter is moving. Thank you Seely for bringing out the best in my children and giving her the encouragement and confidence she needed to go the next grade.
