Perhaps not quite as good as it thinks it is. The facility is brand new and excellent, but the attitude ast the school is a bit complacent. The court are still out on whether the new principal is any good. There has been a huge turnover of principals and superintendants in the last few years. It needs some stability and a long term plan. Sports are good, although the football mafia tend to call the shots, and other sports join the back of the line for space and funding.
This school's great, there are a lot of new options available each year for courses...which makes me a bit excited for each new year, being able what opportunities I'll be able to have and all. The new principal is awesome and cares about the students. And the new supernintendo is great....compared to the terrible old one.
The school is amazing. It is a brand new facility and the teachers are fabulous. Swampscott sports] are known for their winning teams. The extracriculars are not the best range but every year more things are added and they include a large variety. I love attending school. The new princible seems like he will make some really good changes and we will finally get a new superintendent of schools which will be great!
Hopefully the new Pricipal and Superintendant will do a better job protecting our kids.
Swampscott High School is a great public school, the teachers are always availible for students and parents. Swampscott High is a school that encourages students to think on their own. Swampscott High School is a safe place to learn because the teachers care.
The availability of teachers, the vast choice of activities and opportunities for growing minds is excellent. Swampscott is a safe community atmosphere that encourages excellence and aids their students to achieve it.
I think this school is great, but I think it needs more funding for the clubs, provided by the school, and not the students themselves
Swampscott is a wonderful community, the high school students are well rounded and ready to attend college with a solid,confident well educated attitude.
The SHS is an excellent school with many activities, and great teachers. I am not a parent, I am a student. The school is very safe as there are cameras all over the school. I am impressed with it.
