Overall it was a great high school. There was a lot of school spirit and pride. However, I wish the school would have done a better job preparing the students for college. This would include teaching them how to read an degree advising form. Other than this, my high school was GREAT!

Seaman High School was honestly so great. Students love to complain that attend the school, but they just have bad attitudes toward school in general and it has nothing to do with Seaman in specific. The teachers were all so nice and actually cared about the kids. It was also great because my sophomore year they began the one to one initiative where every student got their own personal laptop and that greatly increased the level of academics in my opinion. Overall, it was a great enrironment that provided a ton of great learning opportunities.
Going to Seaman High School was always difficult based on the name. I wish that is something that could be changed, but I know that is something that would be very difficult. The teachers at Seaman are very welcoming and helpful. I never really felt that there was a teacher who did not really care about my well-being. They do their best to teach us things that will further our knowledge and help us to succeed in life, in college and the real world. I would like them to change the way their building is made. Seaman has open classrooms were there are no walls or doors and it makes me feel very unsafe with all the school shootings. I wish that Seaman would spend less of their money on sports and more of their money on fixing our school so that we can have walls and doors on our classrooms.
