    My 1st grade son is new to the school moving up from another state. We've been impressed with the work they are doing in his class and the challenging homework he's been bringing home. He's not overwhelmed but it's definately more academically challenging for him now - which is great!

    I have a child in 4th grade at Seylar and our experience has been great! Everyone we have met has been passionate about education. The HSA is very involved. The principal manages the students and teachers very well. I would highly recommend this school.
