    I do not know where to begin; ever since my child was in second grade the teachers and staff has made all type accusations towards my children nieces and nephews. One teacher told my daughter boldly that she was going to be held back in front of the entire class not to mention she is only in 3rd grade. As a result my daughter was and is fearful of the teacher; I didn t realize how distress my daughter was until I heard her praying on her knees (as I reiterate) please god let my teacher stop being mean to me and always picking on me in class. This was the last straw; I had a meeting with school staff and teacher about changing her class! It has been over a month and no adjustments have been made (and her teachers are still haunting over her like two evil witches. In conclusion I am removing her from the school because this institution has been my worst nightmare. I can go on for months with the anxiety my family and me had to go through with this school!

    My son is in an inclusive setting in the 5th grade. He likes it but their is no support for the children having problem. If you make enough to pay for lunch than you can not get any tutoring offered in the school.

    First I would like to say the school is a very good school. If indeed you are a parent who is interesting in good education seton falls is the place to send your child. The principle is for the children. She loves and cares for them deeply. She makes sure they get the best quality of education their is by having SES programs after school and music [playin an instrument]. She has over 7 different events for the children and their parents to enjoy each year. Her staff members work hand and hand. The teachers are very easy to talk to and they are very open minded. Then you have the parent coordinator who is outstanding. She will make time for you and always give you genuine support. I know all this because I am an involve parent who have two sons who attend the school. I am very sadden because my fifth grader is leaving this year.

    The school has tons fo trips activities and events for its students and parents. It can get a little expensive when u have more than 2 children but it's worth it. The staff are helpful and concerned. And I noticed a lot of Parental involvement. My children enjoy going.

    My daughter is a second grader in this school. Her first year there was great she made the Honor Roll however I do agree with the other parent whose feedback was that it depends on the teacher. The teacher she has now seems very nice but it appears she is overwhelmed. I've found the PTA meetings to be redundant and unproductive.

    This is my son's 6th year in this school and my daughter's 4th year. Initially (the first 3years) I loved this school. The teachers they had were great and willing to give them extra work etc. But I came to realize it depends on the teacher they have that makes it great. I have seen some improvements however over the last few years in the music program and other extracurricular activities. My daughter is learning to play the recorder and it seems like a very good music program. Both my daughter and my son have learned to play chess and that is also great. What I would like to see more of in this school is a more caring attitude from the teachers about the kids themselves and not just about the test scores. Although our kids always need discipline it takes more than that to get children to learn.
