I love how all the teachers work together. It is obvious that the pricipal and teachers care a lot about our children's future. My children come home everyday telling me about their day without promting.

I think SWS is a wonderful school. It is a small school, with family atmosphere. The teachers seem to be very good. My first grader has learned so much in the short time she's been here.

This is our 7th year at this school. I have one child who went to kindergarten through fifth grade here and another child who is still attending. It has been a great school with wonderful teachers. We have really liked every teacher and thought they were professional and seemed to really enjoy teaching. Each morning all the children go to a peace circle and and say the pledge of allegiance and have a mantra of teaching 'peace'. The principal and teachers here have been quick to respond to concerns and issues brought up through out the years.

I think that SWS is a great! school. My daughter is in her 3rd year here and she loves it. All of her teachers have been great! I love the way her now the grade teacher 1st introduced herself to me on the first day of school. Se looked me in the eyes and with a very warm smile introduced herself. After meeting all of the parents she then remembered who I was and my childs name. I feel like all of the teachers really care about the students and make a personal effort to help them succeed in whatever they put their mind to do. I also love the ESS program, I just wish that it was a bit cheaper. Overall, I love this school.

We have been attending this school for five years now and I am very pleased with the way this school is run. All of the teachers are very good role models and show the children how to excel in their studies. They have all made learning a fun and rewarding experience. The ESS program this school provides is wonderful. They have a great staff and the children have so much fun in whatever activity they do from homework, play time or extra curricular activities. It is such a great feeling when your children want to go to school and SWS always makes you feel welcome.

I have a student who is currently enrolled. Unfortunately there is an issue of student privacy, we feel is not respected. Students are treated according to financial status. Extremelly Unethical. Children of this age need support, not humiliation and ridicule.

My kids enjoy going to this school. Of the four teachers my kids have had, three of them were very friendly and helpful. I felt like my kids are making satisfactory progress there. The principal and office staff are friendly, helpful, and on task.

We have been affiliated with Sweetwater Springs Community for over 7 years. The entire staff is fantastic. It takes the staff and parent volunteers to make a community school work. Dr. Parsons, is a wonderful principal. He knows all the children. Keep up the good work SWS!

The principal really looks out for the students. He even gets things going for the kids after school. The astronomy night was very good. There were enough telescopes for the kids that were there. One was a 24 inch reflector!! The teachers that my son has had have been very good. My son came here from Russia without any English. They worked with him and assisted with stopping any teasing. My son has met other russian kids at the school. His class is very racially mixed and very happy. Currently he is in the third grade in a class that is shared between two teachers. This has worked out much better than I ever expected.

I think Sweetwater Springs is a great school. My son has two of the greatest teachers for 3rd grade. The teaching staff work hard to keep open communication with parents. When praise is needed or a special concern, Ms. P & J will call me at work, on my cellular phone, and never forget to respond to my e-mail requests. My son is doing great in school. He also loves the extended day services at the school and the special care. The principal is very involved with the teaching staff. I feel good when my son leaves the car with a smile on his face. All of the staff have been very kind. Thanks Sweetwater Springs.

I think this is a very good school. Although I think that they need more aides on the play ground. I really enjoy to see the principal involved with the children and parents, I do love this school.
