    "We ended up pulling our child out of SEES after Kindergarten. The school is WAY too big. Staff is stretched to the limit, doesn't have time to discuss things with parents. It is hard to know who to talk to if you need help. Your child will not get an individualized education as promised. I was in my child's class room every week and I didn't see much individualized education. The teachers/staff act burdened if you ask questions. My child's teacher s standard response was I just don t have time . We got one 15-minute parent conference the whole year; received a mass letter 2nd semester saying you won't get a second conference if your child is at or above grade level. When I raised concerns to the teacher asking specific questions, I received a cookie cutter response (I actually found copy and paste portions on the SEES website). You have no input in how your child is placed in a class (your told to write a letter re: placement but you cannot request a specific teacher). I don't think they actually take these letters into account, placement seems luck of the draw. School only tries to get children to the minimum state required level.If your child is above the 60% they will be board."

    "We are moving from NJ to San Marcos area. Our top priority is our fourth grader! After speaking to many people and visiting many areas over the past 4 years, we were encouraged to hear SEES provides the BEST academic experience for our daughter as well as SEH is the only town with that "hometown" feel. We are beyond excited to move in 3 weeks and have high hopes for SEES to be a "5 STAR" experience for our daughter. WE spoke to CA lifelong residents as well at transplants, and they all recommended SEH and SEES!"

    "We pulled our kid from a christian private school due to bullying and cliques. Our kid was welcomed to SEES and we cannot believe we did not start him here from the beginning. It is a rather large school, once we got passed that we quickly realized that the quality of kids here is great. Teachers are very seasoned. We are very happy here!"

    "My oldest has been there since Kindergarten, and now he just started 5th. I have another in 4th and my baby just started 1st grade. I love this school. We moved up to San Elijo for this educational experience for my children. I wish the planners had figured out how popular the school is and I wish the class sizes were smaller, but the quality of staff and the quality of the teaching is beyond all expectations. The teachers are accessible and know their kids. This is the most encouraging school for reading and academic excellence. We are so happy at this beautiful school"

    "My son has been here since Kindergarten and just finished 4th grade with 3 straight semesters on the honor roll. I can't say how proud we are of him this year and how happy we are with the teachers. He has excelled and has been challenged with additional work when the regular material wasn't enough. There is a lot of focus on math and language arts as well as physical education, science, and art, in spite of the budget situation. I was really impressed with everything he learned and look forward to our final year next year. It's too bad the community rating is marked down by posters venting about San Elijo being a so-called "green" school. We should teach our children to be informed citizens to help make a difference in society."
