25 Parent Reviews for Swain School

We just began our second year at The Swain School and I am so glad we switched from the East Penn school system.

Furthermore, in class, ...  Read more

The school is NOT academically challenging, with the exception of the science program and one kindergarten teacher. Reading material is grade level, not based on a child's instructional reading level. Reading (4th on) and math are taught as whole class instruction. Starting in third grade, they simply ...  Read more

Swain is a great school. It's a very "homey" and relaxed environment. My daughter LOVES to go to school here. I can't say enough about the administration - so friendly - yes, they greet you with a hug and with listening ears. They know your children by name. Teachers are very knowledgable and enthusiastic. ...  Read more

Don't be fooled by initial appearances! Teachers themselves report that if your child has any type of learning difference, you should keep looking because Swain is incompetent to handle it, and you will be pushed out. This is not a safe environment for kids. Wealthy parents who are big financial contributors ...  Read more

I have two children attending The Swain School and they LOVE it. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the school, staff, and community at Swain. Both of my children come home every day so eager to tell me what they did and what they learned. The love showing off their work. They can't wait ...  Read more

Swain is a safe, comfortable environment where the teachers trust the students. Swain makes me feel like I am at home. Swain makes me think in a fun way. I used to go to a different school, and I despised it! Now, thanks to Swain, I love school! The way the teachers teach, instead of feeling like I am ...  Read more
