Swallow Union is such a wonderful place. The teachers know all the kids by name and try to provide a challenging environment for each. Even Principal Meyerson is very hands-on and involved. Both my boys love it there!
We have the best teachers and principal ever! They know every child's name, they know who the friends are, they match children to the right teacher and class for the following year. Each person who works at Swallow Union cares about giving the children absolutely the best, most positive school experience possible.
My son starts 4th grade this year, but reads at the 10th grade level ... not because of the school, though. We encourage reading at home. I think they are a little slow in math, though. Had to teach my son multiplication/ division this summer, because they haven't pushed ahead yet. Still, a very good school.
I have had a wonderful priviledge of working at Swallow Union School. It is, by far, the best school in the Groton-Dunstable district. The teachers are amazing and even with the ups and downs the town has gone through, the teachers are still smiling and educating our future leaders. The administrative staff is by far the most experienced and when the copy machine breaks, they stop what they are doing to help and don't even make you feel bad for breaking it. The principal knows his staff and students and is always putting them first. Overall, it was a wonderful place to be a part of.
My son went to the school for full time Kindergarten and for 1st grade. The teachers were top notch. The 1st grade teacher called each parent within the first couple months and gave them a status of how their son or daughter was doing. You get tons of teacher interaction. I couldn't be more happier with the teachers and the academics.
