I overall have not had the best experience at high school, but am hopeful about college! I personally don't think I fit into my high school very well anyway. I do not think my school is that organized and while they manage to put on many events, I do not think they plan them well as they are always taking up class time. I also think teachers occasionally get to personal with students to where they end up taking away from class time. The school seems to try to stay updated with modern times and does not exactly manage to do that very well.

The school's performing arts department is very good, and the athletics and extra-curricular activities teach the students valuable leadership skills. However, the teachers are not well-trained enough to teach the students. Many of the girls have to teach themselves the material, instead of the teachers actually DOING their job AND TEACHING the students LIKE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO. Also, teachers are late with reporting grades and distribute demerits based off of their emotions. Aside from that, the admissions staff is very friendly, and the core curriculum is good for preparation for college.

The overall cleanliness of the school leaves much to be desired. The main building of the school has rodents and other pests running around here and there, and the building is basically falling apart. The performing arts and athletics building, on the other hand, is very clean and sturdy. It is just really cold all the time.
I have been at Elizabeth Seton since freshman year. Although it is a generally decent school, there are some issues that Seton does not effectively deal with. For example, there are clear tensions between the different cultural groups, especially during this time in America. Seton acknowledges these tensions but has yet to find a way to deal with these problems head-on. It is also sometimes difficult for students to express themselves at Seton. Seton hs very strict rules that restrict a student from being their true selves, like the limit on piercings, certain clothes you cannot wear, and hair color. These issues have taken a toll on many different people at Seton.
