    SEED PCS is a good school with a lot to offer. It is interesting to know that SEED PCS is a free boarding school for DC residents with a mission to provide students with an intensive college preparatory educational program that prepares students for college. WOW!

    I had two girls that went to Seed. Both went to college. One finished and is working and the other is still in college; Jr. year. Oh by the way they both graduated from Seed with honors. The reason for all this is because the Seed staff encourages their students to strive to be the best they can be. The teachers go the extra mile to get them their. They also work with turning children into young teen adults with the push of being independent. Can't forget about the amazing teachers; their #1 to the success of your child's education and future. Now you talk about getting your child a great education well look no further SEED PCS is the place. Grades 6-12. I could go on and on about SEED. If you are in the Washington DC area and looking for a school to place you child in SEED PCS. Now that's REAL talk. Thanks to the founders faculty and contributors of the SEED PCS community.

    I am a student that goes to seed and it takes you on amazing trips trips that that take you out of the country and its such an amazing journey the school is a boarding school and is a preportory college so the work is beyond hard and for me I noticed that majority all the kids that go end up being in summer school but for me I do recommend this school but you will have a little struggle among the journey

    The SEED Public Charter School is a wonderful school filled with really concerned teachers and office staff. They constantly keep me in the loop of everything going on whether through email phone calls or regular mail. This school keeps my child focused and she gets straight A's. The school's primary objective is getting your child prepared for college (college prep) and they do a tremendous job in instilling this into the kids heads which is the way of today and definitely the future.
