I love this school but there’s is absolutely no diversity. If you want diversity go to Groves or some other school. Besides that, teachers are great!

I had a great experience at Seaholm High School. The teachers are phenomenal and the administration genuinely cares about the student body. The environment is very academically competitive, which can easily become a negative facet of the school atmosphere, but the Seaholm community works to be supportive of all its students and provides ample resources to help students succeed and feel appreciated. Without a doubt, I will remember my time there fondly.
I would have given three stars if not for the teachers. The teachers at Seaholm are truly phenomenal and genuinely care for all their students. Their utmost goal is to see their students succeed in whatever way is best for the individual. The student atmosphere at Seaholm, however, is three stars. Because of the largely white population, there is an inherent racial and cultural tension that exists. Their have been racially/culturally motivated incidents for the past three years that have called for police investigation.
