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 ...  Read more

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. ...  Read more

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.

Didn't know how good we had it! Our child now goes to San Diego school district and we miss the quality of education at San Elijo. While some of the drop off polices are annoying and could be improved, the import things are all in place. The biggest attribute of this school is it's accountability. It ...  Read more

We are very happy here! We considered private school, but most ( the ones we can afford) did not measure up. Our daughter has excelled here and is very happy with the teachers. The teachers give her the attention she needs and the direction to move forward. I would give it 5 stars, but it is getting ...  Read more

My child attended this school for three years before we moved to a new area. We really miss it and now really appreciate what we had there. All three of the teachers that we had were awesome. My child learned so much. I didn't have to teach her homework to her, she learned everything in class and I was ...  Read more

The teachers at this school are amazing. Not only are they accessible to the students for their needs, but they work closely with the parents to keep involvement to a maximum. I have never been happier with a school.
