The Seaford School District extends about three miles from Seaford Harbor north to Jerusalem Avenue.  North of Jerusalem Avenue there is more than a mile of the Seaford postal zone that is not in the school district.
East-west along Merrick Road, the school district runs about 1.2 miles from near Cedar Creek to Seaford Creek at Tackapausha. East-west at the railroad, the extent is about 0.6 miles.

The other day (11.18.2016) I met a graduate of the Seaford High School class of 1965.  He said his graduating class numbered 320.  In vast parts of Nassau County that had farms or vacant land in the early 1940's, there was a housing boom through the 1950's that caused a peak in high school enrollment in the 1960's.  By the 1970's, districts were dismissing staff and closing schools.
