Great school! The teachers maintain contact with parents and are focused on the academic success of their students. We have also had no issues with bullying between students. My son enjoys school, receives a quality education, and maintains excellent friendships with other students at SWMS. We are sad to be leaving next year!

My son and daughter both have flurished since entering SWMS. I love this school and so do my children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arkansas used the Benchmark Exam to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in literacy and grades 3 through 8 in math. The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
