Amazing school ,staff and enviroment. Ms.Neely is one of the best K teachers I have ever had the pleasure to meet. My child cry's when she is sick because she cannot go to school.

I think John Swett is the best school in the area. You get a small town feeling while getting a big time education. The school has an excellent staff and a PTA which seems to be involved with every aspect of the school. I am so happy we moved, just to go to John Swett.

Academic program is one of the best in our small district. Music, science and PE courses are built in to the school week and the teachers are fabulous! Many other enrichment classes are offered throughout the year, as well as GATE and art. The greatest thing about the school is the level of parent ...  Read more
