This is our fourth year at SEAS. We have a daughter in the fourth grade and a son in the second grade. We have been very pleased with the academic quality as well as the faith formation. The teachers hold the kids accountable, and most parents seem to do so as well. The principal shows professionalism.
We are sooooo happy that we chose SEAS for our child. The teachers are skilled not only at teaching core subjects, but at understanding that each child is different. Last year my son's teacher was exceptional in understanding where he was emotionally. And, because I was around the school doing some volunteer work, I saw how the kids viewed all the teachers (very positively). I especially like that parents can be as involved as they want to be. Some parents aren't able to volunteer, others are. Some parents like to go eat lunch with their kids, some kids don't need that. Some parents go to Wednesday mass with the kids, some don't. Some parents have more disposable income and are able to donate for special events, others don't. And after the horrible school shootings over the last few years, the school responded quickly by making sure the kids knew what to do in an emergency, and by installing additional security. I like the teachers, I like the other parents, I like the church, and best of all, my child is happy, is learning a LOT, and feels secure.
We were a SEAS family through and through. School, PArish and many volunteer hours spent there. Now that we have changed to another private school I am not as certain as I was that it was a family run school. We loved it but it was more my own involvement not the actual teaching other than religion. I am very dissappointed that no sooner do I say we are changing schools for possibly 1-2 yrs that I now feel banned from my own church. Then feeling of family is false unless you make it happen yourself. If you don't have a "regular child" the Learning Lab is insuffiecient . The focaus of the school is being Catholi not the ABC's and 123's. You know what that falls to me and the school we are moving to has some of the most polite children I have ever encountered. After all the hours I spent volunteering and money I spent I expected more. I thought the church would still be my home I may be wrong. I truly hope not.
This school has changed our lives for the better. Our son has never had a positive school experience and this is a first! The teachers at this school are knowledgable and patient. The Principal understands the staff very well and placed our child with the perfect teacher. There is constant communication and my child's progress is posted on RenWeb every single day. I am completely aware of what is going on in the school and there are so many after school activities available. The facility itself is new and up to date with state of the art teaching tools. I'm also pleased with the security at this school. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in a solid education in a positive environment.
Great academics, strong religious foundation. Teachers are committed to providing a good education while still keeping Christ at the center. School announced firm plans for a gym to come, PLUS a high school nearby!
My son absolutely loved SEAS! When we moved to another state and he began attending an independent private school , he said "I'm going to miss Religion the most". They are fulfilling their mission in raising godly children. Academics are solid, but I knew of some students who had learning issues whose parents felt the teachers were not available to help their child succeed. A well-run school with committed parent core.
If you are looking for an excellent school, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is it. We love the school and have been very happy here. Wonderful teachers and staff, good kids and outstanding environment.
This school is not for everyone...it is overly structured. No gym, no suitable cafeteria, weak fine arts and sports programs, underpaid teachers (which contributes to an extremely high teacher turnover rate). Awesome in religion and parental involvement, but not enough to justify the tuition. Just as many behavioral problems as public school!
If you are searching for a real catholic school then look no further. My husband and I searched all of the schools in the Ft. Worth Diocese and we finally chose St. Elizabeth. I enrolled 3 children and now after 6 six years I can confidently tell you that our choice was right on. I could go on and on about the great staff, church, and curriculum but the most important thing I can tell you is that my children LOVE this school!!!!
SEAS is an excellent school. The curriculum is challenging, and my son is learning his reading and subtraction tables at a very good rate. He will be entering the 2nd grade next year, and our daughter will be starting in Pre-K 4. We have had some behavioral problems in the past couple of years, but we have partnered with the teachers and principal to work through it. The principal is very stern with the kids, but she loves the school, and she does a wonderful job. On top of that, the parents are highly involved, and it is a wonderful community.
I adore this school but more importantly my son loves this school. SEAS has developed a love for learning in him that is fantastic and has helped him grow in sooooo many ways. LOVE IT!
This school sets high standards for all the students in both academics and character and morals.
The teachers are great and dedicated. The school staff is wonderful and the education is based on the ideals of Christianity and service to others.
Traditional Catholic education in a caring, loving, Christlike environment.
SEAS provides a rigorous academic education while maintaining high ideals of Christianity, morality, and service to the community.
Christ is the center and the focus of the school, the teachers are outstanding, the academics are exemplary, and the support of our children from faculty and staff is priceless!
I am entering this review as a parent, but was a teacher at SEAS as well--until we moved away. After military transfers to two other states in the past year, I can tell you that SEAS is beyond great ! You take for granted how exceptional the school is until you no longer have it. The staff and administration is top notch and cares very much for the individual. Core values and religious morals are simply the icing on the cake of the best academic program I have ever seen.
We have a 4th&7th grader and one who attended SEAS but is in 9th now. We have been at SEAS since it opened and have had excellent teachers, experienced administrators and challenging academics. Our 9th was in regular math but placed into honors when tested for high school. Parents are very involved. Still waiting for a gym and lunch room, but staff and religious environment more than makeup for it!
I could not be happier with my daughters education at SEAS. The school is beautifully kept. The faculty is outstanding and children excel in academics as well as religious studies. There is alot of support from the parish and priests and SEAS continues to grow, wiath out losing any of its integrity. The administration is organized and very interested in the well being of all of the students. The school receives top scores for academics in the diocese. The school offers music, art, sports and many clubs from scouts to destination imaginagion. As of the close of the 2006 school year, the school is building sports fields on aquired a4 acres. They have plans for a gym to follow. I highly recommend this school and its staff.
Our son has attended this school for two years and we think it is an excellent place for a good academic and catholic education. The principal is firm but kind and sets the proper tone for the teachers. The math department is exceptional with free tutoring during the week for those interested in improving. We recommend it wholeheartedly.
