My daughter moved to Sea crest in 6 grade now is in 8th grade and loves it. We especially love the diversity of class offerings including band, chorus, technology, drama and art and the small class size. I highly recommend !Sea Crest school has been a wonderful educational experience for my daughter and she is now well prepared for high school.

My fourth grader has attended Sea Crest since he started kindergarten. His experience has been nothing less than amazing. He has received a top notch education as well as being exposed to music, theater, ILab and art. Every teacher he has had truly knows him and his learning style. I am especially grateful having this option on the coast where my son can still be an active member of the Half Moon Bay community. Go Seals!
