Selected comments from the 2020 Preparatory Report
"All members of the community interviewed were unanimous in their characterization of the school's working environment as positive, supportive and highly professional."
Evaluator Feedback from Preparatory Report November 2020
"The teaching staff at Seisen is always using the guiding statements, even if they are not in the classroom setting. I have often heard the staff encourage the girls to step out of their comfort zones and take a risk in doing something they normally wouldn't do."
Parent quote from CIS/NEASC Preparatory Report 2020
"Members of the board on visiting the school comment about the sense of freedom and the happy, welcoming atmosphere. From a young age, children are guided to be responsible and caring. There is a close, appropriate relationship with students, where respect and appreciation are obvious on both sides. We have observed how the administration puts the student first when making decisions."Board quote from CIS/NEASC Preparatory Report 2020
