From Our Community
"Students at Seaside are treated as more than just a student. They are treated as part of a community and individual attention is given to my child. The teachers and administration truly know her - her personality, her strengths and weaknesses, and they know how to cultivate both of those. When my daughter comes to school she enjoys it and always feels like her day went well and that she excelled and thrived in her learning environment."
