Our third grandchild is attending this school this year. It is great to see some of the previous teachers still helping the students grow.

My daughter enjoys this school very much. The academic program is good and gives her the opportunity to excel.
Seahurst is a great school. The staff and PTA really want the kids to have a good learning experience.
Love this school. Parent involvement is high as well as child oriented activities. Seem to care about the children instead of being cold like so many these days
My son really enjoyed his time at Seahurst. When he was having a few problems they stepped in and handled things very well. The teachers are kind and patient. They make learning fun and enjoyable for the children.
Seahurst is a wonderful school with a great staff. The principal is wonderful. My only complaint is parent involvement (re PTA volunteering ect.)is very low. Our reading program is wonderful music and pe program is good.
Staff and teachers are great and really working hard but they have a lot of challenges in the classroom. I've been volunteering one hour a week in my child's classroom for 6 months 2004/05. There are a lot of children in the class with special needs; little english distractability and/or other behavioral issues. In fact a great amount of the teacher's time seems to be spent addressing behavior to the detriment of teaching time and quality. The classroom is also quite large; close to 30 children. While I'm not trying to knock the value of diversity I'm concerned that there are too many complexities introduced not only by the cultural (mainly difficulty communicating) element but also the apparent behavioral problems and too few teachers/aides to shore all this up. I'm looking at private schools for next school year.
Cascade Middle School is a very fun learning environment it has alot of great Qualitys.
