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.
The school has great academics, and most teachers are devoted to seeing the growth of students. About 99% of students graduate, most of them going on to a post-secondary institution.

The students can be...difficult. There is a sense of entitlement and unhealthy academic competition from students. I attribute this mostly to the affluence of the town. Diversity is pretty much a foreign concept, in all manners of the word.

Overall, it could be worse.
