My school is a vibrant and welcoming place for all students, whether as part of the Gifted and Talented Program, or whether they need an extra push to help them get on grade level. The parent participation and sets us apart from all the schools in the county! International Night celebrating the diversity among us is just one example of how the school and PTA embrace our community.
We have been a part of Swansfield for 4 years and have had nothing but great experiences. Mrs. Ketter for one is amazing. It is apparent that she truly loves being an educator and working with children. Every member of the staff has ensured my son has everything he needs to be successful in elementary school. Every year I am impressed with the amount of parent teacher communication. Keep it up Mrs. Ketter and Swansfield!!!
We have had a very good experience at Swansfield. This is our last year there with our youngest son, and we will miss it next year. The school population is very diverse and the teachers are wonderful. We have experienced the GT programs and special needs programs, and in both cases the teachers have been caring and responsive.
This schools staff seems to be very rude and arrogant. They do not return phones and you need to call them back at least 3 times to do get the information that you need but you get different information everytime.
I am shocked to hear that a parent can say this for Ms Ketterer.She is an amazing Principal and the best thing that has happened to Swansfield.The Teachers are amazing and so are the administrators!
the teachers we have are wonderful this year. the principal leaves alot to be desired. alot of prgress needs to happen there. they love music and art classes. and really learn a broad spectrum of music and appreciation for various types of art as well.
worst experienc e last 3 years with ms ketterer. defintiely needs alot of work. leaves alot to be desired to adress issues . felt ignored quite often and avoided, so as not to adress issues at hand. teachers are awesome! but the leadership in this school needs alot of work!!!!!!!!! can not rate any stars because do not feel any are deserved at this time.......
This is a great school to work with, everyone is kind to each other, and the teachers pay special attention to each and every student, disable or not.
The staff care about every single child in the school. There are many programs available at the school to support the students and their families. It has a wonderful environment in which to learn and grow.
The Swansfeild School experience is really good. Our daugther enjoyed going to school and specially the class. Mr Werdesheim seems to quite experienced and talented teacher.
We have had a very good experience at Swansfield. It is a very diverse school, and the faculty is excellent. In particular, our son's math teacher last year (third grade)was fantastic. We will miss principal Davis, but the new principal comes highly recommended.
Well,I couldnt disagree more with the great reviews.Our child fell behind at this school after we moved here and the teachers kept wanting to place blame on our child being 'lazy' instead of recognizing he had a learning disability! The school might be ok if your child is advanced,but if your child needs extra help,forget it!
Wonderful and very professional and competent teachers and administrators. Warm and loving environment.
We love swanfield. My daughter went there fromn 1st through 5th grade. My son is in 4th grade. The GT program is very challanging. The school is very diverse. The classes are relatively small and the teachers are wonderful. It is a secret gem. Because of the the student mix people think that it would not be a good school. Nothing is further from the truth. It has been a great experience for our family.
This is a very involved school on all levels. It is fair to say that the entire staff,principal and assistant principal are dedicated in meeting all the academic levels of their student population. The staff makes an effort to combined their staff resources to help their students to over come any challenges they may have and help them to believe in themselves! One needs to be mindful of the multicultural population and economic needs are influence the total child and for this I give them a ten. Academically for test scores reflect the total effort on the behalf of student- and their parent involving in the learning process. If a parent or legal guardian does not take the time due to economic and or new students coming from another country that needs to be taken seriously with fairness and not to punish the school but to look at the entire picture.
The teachers and staff are wonderful. It seems that they all know the names of each student! Very happy to be apart of his school. Johnathan Davis is a wonderful principle, seems deeply envolved in every aspect of the school.
So far Swansfield has been a good experience he is only halfway through kindergarten and is already starting to read. Ms. Mason is a wonderful teacher. His bus driver also seems to be a very caring person whom I definitely feel comfortable with. The extra-curricular activities are great as well as the opportunities for family involvement. I also think the artwork is some of the best I have ever seen.
The school has been doing consistently bad for last couple of years and now in the improvement list. What can I say?
Swansfield is not just a school but a family. They all go above to make sure that the children learn everything they need. They have great support through out the school. You will never find a better school.
