Ernest W. Seaholm High School Reviews
Being in such an affluent district, Seaholm has tons of resources to help their students reach their full potential. Teachers are easy to reach outside of the classroom for help, there are an abundance of clubs and sports, and the curriculum is quite rigorous. I am currently a freshman in college and I feel that Seaholm prepared me fairly well. Contrary to popular belief, Seaholm's downfall is not the lack of diversity itself, but it's treatment and lack of support for its minority populations, specifically students of color and those who identify as LGBTQ. Seaholm does offer clubs for these groups, but thats about all the support that they receive. Most teachers, and even administrators turn a blind eye to the discrimination and harassment of minority students, and have done an extremely poor job of creating a safe learning environment for all students, along with not being intolerant of hate prejudice and discrimination.
Seaholm was great for both my sister and myself! It has prepared us so well for college and the career world. It was great for both of us, despite our differing personalities. I am happy to say that Seaholm offered all the clubs I'd like to join. It also offered fabulous athletic opportunities for my sister to take part in and for me to watch. Go Mapes!
My experience at Seaholm was wonderful. They provided me with everything I needed due to my dyslexia, I had an IEP I had support of all my teachers and staff members. I really love Mrs Bach, she did a wonderful job making sure that I succeeded in my classes, school, friendships and in the outside community. She is the go to person if there is a problem at Seaholm that needs to get fixed. Also she is very compassionate, understanding and perseveres through her work also while helping. She puts her students needs before her needs. Seaholm is a great school to go to.
