All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Swansea Elementary is moving in the right direction! As a teacher at Swansea, I feel honored to be among our dedicated and highly-qualified staff. You will be hard-pressed to find teachers, administrators, and support staff who are more dedicated and devoted to their children and families. Most Swansea teachers hold advanced degrees, some of which are masters degrees from the nationally recognized Denver Teacher Residency teacher certification program. Our staff also includes an occupational therapist, health support, full-time psychologist, SPED team, and GT teacher. This year, Swansea went green on the school performance framework. Our school has shown high student growth and we are only getting better! I love working with the students here. My kids are resilient, intelligent, creative, and hardworking. I love to see their smiles and the sparkle in their eyes while they learn. There is nowhere else I'd rather work!

My children are currently enrolled at Swansea Elementary. The principal Mary is very nice to the children. There is also a secretary there who is extremely nice and her name is Maria. One of my favorite things about the school is that the majority of the staff is bilingual. My least favorite thing about the school that not many parents are involved in school functions. Besides this Swansea is an awsome school!

I have been a second grade teacher at Swansea for the past six years. Although I am moving on for personal reasons, I can say with great certainty that the families and faculty are involved in providing the best educational experience possible for the children. Swansea has a wealth of extracurricular experiences; including Art, Performing Arts (Dance), Music, PE, and Computers. Although there are language barriers to contend with, Swansea parents are eager to learn English, many of whom take classes weekly throughout the school year, and also to share cultural experiences with teachers and students. I am proud to have been a part of the Swansea community.
