This school is one of the best kept secrets in the Raleigh area! I have not met a principal yet that is involved with the children in every way like the one here is! The PTA is great, and the education is wonderful! What a great community school!

The quality of academic programs at Swift Creek are very good, there are a variety of choices for the children to choose from especially from third grade and up. Parent involvement is very high, just about any parent you talk to does some kind of volunteer work for the school.
