Excellent school with caring teachers and principal. The curriculum is excellent and meets my children where they are, pushing them to excel even if they are already ahead. I found the nurse to be very caring and sensitive to the needs of the student. excellent PTA and school activities.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree

Great anti-bullying campaign throughout the school year. I'm not aware of any incidents that have gone on with being immediately addressed and resolved.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree

They believe in meeting a child where they are. That can be well ahead or lagging behind.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

Mrs. Gloodt is a 26 year principal who still enjoys here job. She's present at all school events and functions. She's reachable for a meeting or phone call and very responsive. She has fantastic follow-through.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
My children really take to heart the school's motto of being respectful, responsible, and safe. They also have a great PBIS program that starts from day 1, introducing the children to the culture of the school.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Not only are they great teachers, they are effective communicators with parents whether there is an area of concern or not.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
At first I thought, there wasn't enough homework being given until I had the opportunity to see and hear how much they actually cover during the school day. My children effectively grasp the concepts taught and are able to apply them in real life. I'm more than pleased.

The teachers are great, the curriculum is excellent, and my son has been very happy there until the last couple of months. My son has eczema and is under a doctor's care. The school nurse continues to call, harass me, and claim I am doing nothing for my child. This week it was suggested I NOT send him to school until this is "under control." You think a nurse would know something about this. It's pretty awful that your medical staff is harassing parents of the students. It is enough to make me pull my child out of Sward. I hope someone looks into her conduct and no one else has to go through the belligerence I have had to. Thank you for your time.

Sward is mostly populated by students from caring and involved families;thats part of what makes it such a great place! When both the family AND the school faculty are involved, success is available to any student. This school, its faculty and principal are exceptional individuals who are great at giving kids the tools they need for success. Principal Gloodt seems to know all the kids by name and is very involved in the day to day operations of the school. The teachers Ive had the pleasure of interracting with seem genuinely invested in their students success. I am very pleased with my students experiences at Sward.



- a
Great school with a demanding work load for the kids balanced by positive caring professional teaching staff. This school has a strong no-nonsense principal and provides a great learning environment for all the students.
