Teachers are truly dedicated, students show school spirit, parents are always willing to volunteer! Sweetwater Elementary has a great school community with tons of exciting and educational extracurricular activities. The education of the students is highly valued by all staff, and students are encouraged to work beyond their ability, with positive reinforcement and respect for everyone within the community. There is no shortage of education in this school and their grade of 'A' is also proof of all the hard work going on in Sweetwater Elementary!

Not only does the school have high standards and get great results, but the atmosphere is very inclusive and welcoming. There is a great sense of belonging, family, camaraderie, and general good-will among parents, teachers and students. Having experienced other schools, I can say that this one stands out as a winner.

My 2 children went from K to 5th grade at this school. After leaving I now can see what a fantastic group of teachers and staff that was there. SWE is thebest school you could hope for for your child. Love, Kindness, and Education is #1. Also parental involvement is tops, We Loved this School and wish it the best of life. Anyone would be lucky to go to this school.

This school is excellent. We purchased our house because of the school district designation.

I highly recommend this school. It has teachers that do a wonderful job. My son has been going to Sweetwater for 4 years. Overcrowding will not be a problem since there will be students going to the new school that was built near their neighborhood.

We are new to Florida and were tentative about the schools here having heard negative news about Fl schools in the past. However, we have been pleasantly surprised. Our little guys is a second grader at Sweetwater and he is flourishing. The teachers are supportive and communicative about the children's progress. The learning and lessons seem aimed at motivating the kids to work hard and their progress is closely monitored. We've seen work that we thought was beyond second grade only to watch our son wiz through it! Obviously, they know what 7 year olds are capable of. They have a lovely building with safety conscious staff. Our son also has music, art and Pe on a regular basis. We love Sweetwater elementary

Great academic programs! Daily music, art, or physical education. Many opportunities for parents to be involved: family days, lunch hour, feild trips, volunteer in classroom, ect. We are very pleased with Sweetwater.

Be selective about the teacher your child gets. There was a kindergarten teacher there who was overwhelmed, couldn't control the class, and gave the children tasks that were too advanced for their developmental level such as copying from an overhead transparencies. Children in kindergarten don't have the hand/eye coordination to do that yet and asking them to do so frustrates them unduly. Lots of music available. Overcrowded with too many children in the lunch room. Have to start lunch at 10:30 a.m. in order for all the kids to cycle through. Loud and noisy! Reading is a priority. If your kid can survive in a huge school, they will thrive. If not, they will get lots amid the chaos.

Great school for at home moms. Lots of volunteer opportunities. Teachers are well informed. Security isn't the greatest though

My daughter went from kindergarden to fifth grade at this school. I never worried about which teacher she would get because all were outstanding. She was well instructed for the FCAT test. Music, art and physical education are rotated every three weeks. There is exceptional parental involvement.
