    When we moved to the Myrtle Beach area we visited six different schools trying to decide which school would best suit our families needs. After meeting with the principal we knew that we wanted to be part of the Seaside Family. Our children have had great experiences with the staff at the school and feel very safe every day. The staff and teachers are very compassionate and caring and make each individual student feel special every day.

    This school has been great for my daughter. She has learned so much so far. The teachers have been wonderful.

    I could not ask for a better school to have my son attend! The one on one attention given to each child is amazing...and not just from teachers but from the principal and support staff as well. The PTO is amazing and go above and beyond to try and include family activities and not just catalog fundraisers. Teachers respond to problems and concerns immediately. My son is about to leave Seaside to attend middle school and he asks everyday if he can please stay for another year because he will miss it so much. I have to admit I feel the same way. We may have to be removed kicking and screaming!

    Seaside Elementary is a school that enbraces the children. When you drop your children off in the morning you know they will be well loved during the day. Each child is expected to work to their highest potential. Students write goals and reflect on their work and effort weekly.

    Thank goodness that there is a school that has such involved and concerned teachers. Children are treated fairly and as 'individuals'. The 'Specials' teachers are phenomenal going above and beyond teaching the children the importance of Art Music Technology and Physical Education. That is what makes a well-rounded kids knowing how to make an importance of all that we can teach in those areas as well as their excellence in academics. Bravo!

    My grand daughter attends Seaside and we love how each child is considered to be special. Already in kindergarten the children could express themselves well in writing. Mistakes yes...but they seem to love to learn.

    I have grandchildren at Seaside and I think the school is great! They are very concerned for the safety of the children. The first time I went in to pick the children up from school they checked my identification. I glady showed the lady at the front. This made me feel that my grandchildren are in a safe enviroment.

    My children have all attended Seaside. We have been extremely pleased. I have a 5th grader this year and we are very sad that our time at Seaside is coming to an end. We will truly miss the entire staff. It has been a wonderful experience for our children. They have tremendous support from the staff an cummunity. They are extremely involved in community fundraising for many charities. The entire staff parent and children come together as a team for many endeavors such as the Myrtle Beach Fun Run Caring for kids and support for the troops. I cannot say enough about this school.

    I absolutely love this school my children both have attending. My son K-5 and my daughter K- presently in 5th grade. I love the principal and the staff. I feel very safe with my children attending this school. You could not ask for a more caring principal.

    I am very disappointed in this school particularly the principal and the support staff.We will not be returning next year.

    My children were at this school for three and 1/2 years. The school was supposed to be so 'good' but we were very disappointed with it. The secretaries and staff are rude and unknowledgeable beyond belief; the principal is uncouth apathetic and uses poor grammar. Although we ran into several great teachers there I am very pleased my children are now attending another local school.

    My daughter attended the prek program for the 2006-07 term. I was very disappointed with the main teacher. Most of the children were 4 and 5 year olds and spent far to much time being disciplined. I felt the teacher was too young and didn't know how to identify with there needs. I was disgusted every time I observed.

    My daughter is moving from Seaside to St. James Middle School after this year. I have to say that we will sadly miss Seaside. My daughter has had the opportunity to take part in many activities both during school hours and extra-curricular. I commend the 5th grade team in forming their own special net that allows no child to fall through the cracks. I also commend the staff especially Duke Brown for giving their precious time to teach the the nationally supported Junior Lifeguard Program; a program offered to all 5th graders at no instructional costs. Academically the 5th grade teachers take a no-nonsense approach to learning allowing each student the ability to surpass her own expectations. I do not hesitate in congratulating Seaside for an overall great job!

    My daughter is in Mrs Moretz class this year (2006-07). I just want to say that I couldn't be more please with this teacher she is wonderful and should win teacher of the year every year!She offers a very challenging curriculum and is great with my child who unfortunately is not the most cooperative child! Thanks so much for all that you do! Jennifer Graves
