  • Re-Opening Plan | Indoor Mask Requirement

    As part of our 2020-2021 Re-Opening Plan and for the safety of all staff, visitors and students on campus, an approved face covering (mask or face shield) must be worn while inside the buildings of Seaside Neighborhood School. Face coverings are not required outside the building when safe social distancing (6 feet apart) is possible. Any student with a medically-related concern may be exempt from this safety precaution with a written note of approval from a medical professional.

    The continued need for face coverings will be reviewed at the monthly school board meetings, at which time CDC guidelines, local health data and feedback from the school will be reviewed. The first assessment of face coverings on campus will take place at the monthly Board of Directors meeting on August 20, 2020.

  • Celebrating 25 Years of The Seaside Way

    Founded in 1996, The Seaside School, Inc. was one of the first and is now one of the oldest surviving public charter schools in the state of Florida. For the past 25 years, our ambitious staff, involved parents and supportive community have led the Seaside Schools, comprised of the Seaside Neighborhood School and Seacoast Collegiate High School, to be consistently recognized as leaders at both state and national achievement levels.

    Our continued growth and success of The Seaside Way reaffirms what our charter pioneers understood a quarter-century ago. Led by continual support, exploration, accountability, scholarship, independence, dreams and effort, students cultivate their diversity and begin to understand ways that they can make unique contributions to society.

    Admitted through a public lottery system and pursuant to the current policy of the Walton County School District, fifth through eighth grade students at the Seaside Neighborhood School explore a developmentally responsive education. The curriculum connects learning to the students’ community and their daily lives, enabling them to discover individual abilities, interests and learning styles. 

    Currently located on the campus of Northwest Florida State College, Seacoast Collegiate High School serves ninth through twelfth grades and offers students the ability to graduate high school with an Associate’s Degree.

    The Seaside Schools, funded by the state of Florida with supplement by the Seaside School Foundation, uphold a standard of excellence, where an emphasis on academic achievement is complemented by a concern for each learner’s personal growth and intellectual, aesthetic and psychological development.

    The 2020-2021 school year marks the Silver Anniversary milestone for the Seaside Schools, and we look forward to proudly sharing our ambition, mission and success with our community for many years to come!
