Our family LOVES this school. My son attended private schools before coming to Seaview but Seaview is where he has absolutely flourished academically and socially. I don't know about the previous principal but the current one is wonderful. Very involved and knows all his students' names. The teachers here are loving and nurturing. We'll be sad when it's time to move on to middle school.

There is a new principal at Seaview and he is excellent. The teachers are loved and the school provides an excellent and safe environment. My son's class size is 18 which is wonderful. Both my children are bright and budget cuts have restricted this school from expanding its co-curriculars but the PTA is hard at work on that front.

The school staff and teachers all seem very friendly and helpful. It's a newer building and the grounds are well-kept. There is a wonderful YMCA after school program on site. We've had a very positive experience at Seaview.

SeaView Elementary has a very high parent involvement in the school and is very encouraged. There is an after school chess club and music classes including stringed instruments. I've been grateful for the academics and how they are taught in fun and creative ways. My daughter is in second grade and my son in Kindergarten. They have had science classes that teach everything from pupa to cloud patterns. They have hands on teaching with projects and not just book learning. Parents help out in the lunchroom, on the grounds at recess and throughout the day with projects. There is a 'Shark Hall' store where the students get experience with selling and managing the stock. The Librarian is wonderful to help the children find books in the childrens interest areas and teachers encourage reading in everything. There are many activity nights where Parents get to meet the parents of other students.

The principle is weak. She tells you what you want to hear and then does nothing. I do not know of anyone who is impressed by her lack of action. The teachers are wonderful, the parents are very involved and the students are happy.

We are only in kindergarten, so I can't relate to the 1st. parent's comments. What I am sure of is this: we have had a wonderful first year at Seaview.

Seaview has high academic standards, but this is not the place for the kid who doesn't 'fit the mold.' The principal will follow her adgenda regardless of your input. Definitely not recommended for ESL kids, foster kids or any child who has had a recent emotional setback or is lagging behind the grade level curriculum. No extra help will be available. I have had 2 children attend this school; the 'normal' one excelled, but I was told the school was not legally required to bring my older adopted ESL child up to grade level and no attempt was made to do so. I finally pulled her out of the building, and we did bring her up to grade level through the Homeschooler's Resource Center and Alderwoood Middle School.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
