The student body consists of grades 6 through 12,  drawn from the Village of Florida and surrounding portions of the towns of Chester, Goshen and Warwick.

The school gets its name from Samuel S. Seward, a prominent settler and member of the New York State Assembly in 1804. His son, William H. Seward, was Secretary of State under presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson.
