New teaching method is a success for Seaside school

SEASIDE, Calif. - The way teachers instruct and students learn will soon look different throughout Monterey County. "All our students are becoming more confident. It used to be 'fill-in the bubble, here, teacher,' versus, 'I have to make a product. I have to show myself off''," said Seaside Middle School teacher Meghan Armfield-Webb.

Welcome to Seaside Middle School

Welcome to Seaside Middle School Image

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our families to the 2017-2018 school year. Our dedicated staff will work hard to challenge your child academically, build connections with students and their families, and ultimately prepare them for high school. With that in mind, our vision at Seaside Middle School will be to provide a welcoming and safe environment where positive relationships are developed. Our school will maximize achievement through high expectations for learning, behavior, and instruction. We recognize the important role that families play in the life of their children and we believe that effective communication and parent input are essential in helping us achieve our vision.

Commitment to the best for our children on the part of parents, students and staff is the key to our success with the children we teach. School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, reinforce values, and develop a strong sense of self-worth. We must invest our time and energies in our nation’s most valuable resource - our children as "Together We Rise".

The staff at Seaside Middle School looks forward to working with the students and their families during the 2017-2018 school year.
