Our staff provides a supportive environment, which encourages students to develop into young learning leaders. Our school community works collaboratively so that we may create an academically challenging environment.

The SEEALL Philosophy

The philosophy of Students Educationally Enriched As Learning Leaders (SEEALL) is that all students are active learners and participants in the educational process.

Leadership qualities are promoted and shaped through cooperative and collaborative learning, individual and group presentations, public speaking, and ongoing autonomy in all curriculum areas, including the Arts and Technology.

Special Education: SEEALL has team-teaching classes and a few self-contained classrooms for students with more profound special needs.

English Language Learners: As of the 2012-2013 school year, SEEALL had five certified ESL teachers, serving 180 ELL students, according to the schools Comprehensive Education Plan.

Admissions: The SEEALL Academy is a zoned school, but families in other parts of District 20 are encouraged to apply. Students who enter the enrichment program in elementary school do not have to take a test or audition to be accepted, and grade school graduates of the program may continue onto the middle school SEEALL program without reapplication.

Students from other elementary schools who enter the program in middle school are admitted based on their attendance record, grades, test scores, and a teacher recommendation, in addition to their performance in an audition, a writing sample, and an interview. Students are admitted to the Superintendant’s Gifted Program based on a combination of factors making up a “composite score”.
