While I wish I could look back on my time at Swain High with fondness, I simply cant. The is due mainly in part to the fact that the administration is a joke, and when I began college many things that are considered basic essentials for doing well in college were not offered during my time there. There are so many better options when considering where to attend school. So I strongly advise to not make the mistake of attending Swain.
Having only attended Swain COunty High, I am a little biased to this school's value. However, I do know that I would wish to go to no other school. Swain High has superb educational oppurtunities, including many Honors, AP, and College courses. Alongside the eucation, the oppurtunities outside of school are many. Swain High has an Air Force JROTC progam, a outstanding music progam with a select Vocal Ensemble and a Perennial award winner in the Band program, and highly rated sports team including a football team that has won seven state championships, a softball team that was the state runner up in 2008, a track program which has won multiple confrence and regional championships, and many other programs that have performed greatly in years past. The teachers at the school are also superior to any others. THe teachers genuinally care for their students and are great at their jobs.
Coming from a larger school in Florida, this school is the best! The teachers are extremely nice and going to school is just actually fun. From sports, AFJROTC, and band..this school as it all. Its amazing to think of how lucky I am to live in Swain County.
I have attended 4 different high schools, one of which was Swain High School. I think this is by far the best school I have been to. The teachers are great at what they do and the principle is highly involved. The arts and sports programs are also one of the best I've see around. I'd definatly recommend this school to anyone thinking about attending.
