    We have 2 daughters at Seeliger. There is a large volunteer base of parents & other adults that have learned that they don't have to be part of a formal organization to help their schools and their kids' enrichment. Most recently a beautification project was launched by a small group of parents and earlier this year - 2 gorgeous murals were donated by a parent/ artist. Family involvement is welcome & encouraged. Seeliger's staff is very dedicated involved and accessible; and its Principal and administration is outstanding. All of this is quite evident when you walk into Seeliger's doors. Thank you!

    I have two boys at Seeliger grades K and 2. The teachers are superior and take an active interest in each child's progress. The administration from the principal to the staff are pleasant and engaged with the student body and the parents. Lastly the PTO does an outstanding job of sponsoring programs for the students and generally keeping parents involved with school activities in a meaningful and fun way. Two thumbs up across the board!!!

    My son has been in this school for 4 years. The team effort of the staff and parents are excellent. Teachers and staff are what make the school what it is today. The extra holiday events bring out school spirit and make you feel your glad to be a apart of it.

    My daughter is now in 4th grade. She started at Seeliger in the middle of first grade. I personally believe this is an awesome school. Teachers seem to genuinely care for the well fare and teaching of the students. [The teachers] keep parents informed of everything involving my child. And of course it shows in my daughters attitude grades etc.
