Seaford School District Reviews

I would like to see the administration build a stronger bond with staff, as to enable them to have a stronger connection with the students. As a parent it really seems as though the students are caught in the middle of a battle with teachers and administration staff. The new high school is a wonderful facility, if only they could now fill it with teachers. The other buildings are in a serious need of upgrades and improvements.

I have been a student at Seaford High School for four years. Overall the school has been improving since recent years. I would love for programs such as IB and New Tech to stay in the school; however, our school does not have the funding required to keep the programs. I also wish that the superintendents would give Seaford a chance because it takes time to make something perfect or to come up from the bottom, and I believe that Seaford is changing for the better.
Seaford Sr High is improving in a number of ways. I have noticed many things in my school but what I would love to see is more out reach groups. Something to connect the students to the community. We all do community service, well most of us. But I'd like to see more done, maybe regular clean ups, or a chance to go visit a retirement home. Something for us to get into touch with our local community.
