Read what parents are saying about Sweetwater High School
Below, was written by a student of Sweetwater HS. This student explains our frustrations as parents to SHS current students (past/future too). The old saying..."straight out of the mouths of babes!" This was a terrible school. If you can't breeze through the curriculum, you're not paying attention - at all. There's no challenge, it caters to the lowest scoring students. If your child is making "decent" grades at this school, they are still not prepared for college. I realize there are "advance placement" classes. However, for those who are making higher grades than their peers, but not high enough for AP courses, there should be classes tailored to their learning abilities so they aren't slowed down. This school does not foster an environment to encourage students to excel. Never one for the any level of government to interfere...but, they need come in...fire everyone!!! Rehire the good teachers (there are a few in SHS...with their hand tied) Hire EDUCATORS!!! NOT CATERS TO THE STANDARDIZED SYSTEM!!!

I had 2 older children go through SHS the oldest was dyslexic and the middle one was above the academics the school offered. By his Junior year we were paying for college courses because SHS did not offer many advanced classes. Our youngest was to enter as a Freshman last year and we chose to home school him and continue to do so. As with any school parent involvement is critical and we do not have that in this area. I agree with what was stated earlier about the band and other events being cut. This is just terrible. Someone also said you can not teach the unteachable ? There is no such thing every child deserves the right to a safe learning environment. There are children who are allowed certain privileges as in carrying and texting from cell phones why is no one complaining about this . All in all we have a wonderful little town here in Sweetwater, but the school system as a full has a lot to be desired
