As my three children went through school they experineced teachers who cared far beyond the classroom, seeking parental imput, ensuring the childs needs were met in order for them to suceed.

I am doing my student teaching at Swain West and I love it!! It is a great environment to work. I have had a school placement every semester for the past three years and by far Swain West is the best. It is a positive environment. The staff is supportive. There is great community and everyone there takes pride in their school.

I retired from working at this school and it consistently strives to be the best for the students. Academics are emphasized, but integrity and compassion for the students has been a priority. Teachers are encouraged to try new innovative ideas, and if they don't work, they are not chastised about them, but are told 'try again' or 'at least you tried.' This is a rural community and many families are transferring in to live with other family members due to the economic situation nationally. SC West could use every penny they can get, and they would use it for the whole student, not just a part.

West Elementary School is a wonderful place to learn and work. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team of professionals!! The children are extremely polite and well rounded. The school environment is a very positive one that pushes students on a daily basis to be their personal best. I am excited to get the chance to work here every day!!
