    Ive Been Going To SeeWorth Forr About 6 Years And Im Telling You Seeworth is A Wonderful School. Although there Dress Code is Strict Its For Your Childs Safety. The food Is Remarkably Great. As For Staff They Have The Best Staff I've Ever Seen. Its like A Family Up There . They Treat Every Child As If They Were Their Own .. I Would Recommend Seeworth To Any And Everybody <3 And Im Re-Attending Seeworth Again This Year As A Junior ) You Really Have To Go To the School To Know What Its All About ..

    This school is terrible. I worked here and was amazed at what was considered teaching. Most students are just 'passed' onto the next grade. The communication with the administration and the staff is very poor. I do not recommend working or attending this school.

    This school is fantastic. They care about the students and the staff is amazing. If there is an issue they always work with the parents and students to get it resolved. My son has perfect attendance here. He wakes up every morning at 5 am and gets to the bus stop by 6 10am the bus takes him and brings him home. He loves going to school for a change. They have kids with all kinds personalities he has made more friends there than any other school. I recommend this school for any parent who might be struggling with their child in any case. My son has speech impairment and he talks to everyone up there because they make him feel like he belongs there. His grades are climbing and I thank god for this school that has helped him in so many ways. Thanks a very pleased parent.

    Their dress code is unbelievably strict in the most nonconstructive way. My niece was sent home twice for her shoes. Once for her Vans logo on the back of her shoes and the second time was because her shoes were blue. They were the plainest pair of blue shoes you could find that looked like Keds. Instead of a warning they sent her home on the city bus during a thunderstorm with no umbrella. She forgot her keys at home so I had to leave my class at UCO to come home and let her in. She was sopping wet of course. Also You are allowed to wear Jordan's at this school as long as the "23" is not showing. This school should focus less on shoes and more on academics. She missed a whole day of class because her shoes were blue. Plain blue.

    ALL I GOT TO SAY IS THIS IS NOT A GOOD SCHOOL. THE PRINCIPAL LEADERSHIP IS NO GOOD.

  • (4 years ago)

    As a teacher that came in for an interview I found that the faculty administration and support staff care about all of their students. They are adament that all students will succeed if they apply themselves. I back the school as I share this same idea and with the support of the parents for the school the students will see that everyone wants the best for them and their future.

    I Really like the teachers you can talk to and you can work at your pace. We have a amazon Vice Principal and the coaches are cool.

    I think SeeWorth is a great school. I learn alot. This school helps students that are out on the streets. The teachers care about us. The Principal and VP really care and don't act like are just getting paid.

    I guess that I am the very first parent to submit a review of the great school of SeeWorth Academy. SeeWorth is a second chance school that allows my grandson to work at his pace in an enriched and safe environment. My grandson is on track to graduate next year and I am just so excited about that. A huge thank you and a big hug to the enrollment office the administration and the staff of JAWSA for giving my baby a second chance and the tools that he needed in order to succeed.

    I've been going to Seeworth academy for 5 years n I love this school with all my heart. Seeworth academy is like anohter home for me the teachers are great and so is the staff.And i just want to say thank you Seeworth academy for helping me change my ways!

    I too was employed by seeworth within the last year as a busdriver. I think most of the teacher are great and do there jobs as best as administration lets them. Nothing in the curriculum is stable. it is changed on a whim by administration so neither the students or faculty know from one day to the next what is happening. For this school to last there needs to be stability and an administration to either think its a power trip or get new ones in that can so the job and have it ran evenly instead of on a whim.

    I was a teacher at JAWSA and feel parents should know what this school is all about. I loved my job and my sutdents. No matter what choas was going on in the school I did my best to help each student overcome the adversities life handed them...For most students JAWSA is the only option for an education--education is what you make it in any school. So while this school may have it's problems it serves a purpose for some and provides hope for students who may not otherwise see any light in this world that has handed them such a challenging life. But all that being said the administration needs to be replaced with caring people who can keep their eyes OPEN as well as their hearts and arms. Success is a Journey Not a Destination. Therefore everyone needs to jump on the bandwagon for a long Journey

    As a former instructor as well I feel it is important to warn parents about this school also. Most of the instructors are great and really care about helping the children. However due to the administration the instructors are very limited in what they can do. The children learn mainly by computers and worksheets. The main two people over the SeeWorth staff dont care at all about the children or the staff. The children are turned away if they cant make it to school on time. We should be proud that they even made an effort to come! There is nothing done to help the kids and the counseling is a bunch of crap! They dont get counseled they get to skip class to go for a soda! The administrators needto take a long hard look at what they have

    SeeWorth Academy has a dedicated staff who is committed to helping students be all they can be. They are willing to go the extra mile to assist a child in achieving his/her academic goals. The governing board is a group of professionals whose purpose is to see that every child receives the opportunity to succeed in the educational world. The student is the focus at SeeWorth Academy. Dedicated staff members work with all students at their level of learning to help the child succeed. A combination of direct instruction computer-assisted academic software and service learning projects make up the majority of a course's work. All students are required to pass a mid-term and final teacher-generated test in core subjects. SeeWorth Academy has wonderful talented children who respond positively to staff members whose only agenda is to focus on the children and their educational success.

    They don't have teachers they have computers. No direct instruction taking place. Students are able to manipulate the A+ system to get a 80% or better and move on the next lesson. Teaching is not apart of this schools mission. The moral of staff is very very low.

    As a former instructor I feel it is important to warn the public about this school. Administrators claim to 'see' the worth in every child but they do not. Teacher turnover rate averages 70% EACH YEAR. Not because of the students (misconception being that at-risk students are violent and unteachable) but because of the total chaos that exists. There is no support system or grievance process for staff. They are overworked and underpaid- most make less than they would in a public school even though working in a high risk environment. The teachers here have a passion for kids or would not be here and that is very positive. The students are incredible overcoming all kinds of adversity and obstacles to continue their educations. Many students graduate here who would not elsewhere but are not getting the quality education that they deserve due to administrative problems.
