I absolutely love this school!!! This school has an awesome program in place to help children who are struggling with reading fluency, reading comprehension and math. Also, teachers are willing to meet with parents anytime to discuss your child's progress. I'm so grateful for Swift Creek Elementary. These teachers deserve a pay increase because they go over and above to make sure your child succeeds academically.

Only for typical and gifted students. IMHO,lack of leadership skills top down to assist special needs students with low knowledge of working the resources available for special needs students.

My child switched this year from Combs as we were very unhappy with the way theyleft children to be unaccountable for their behavior. We are so pleased with our switch. The teachers and administraative staff have been very resposnsive and eager to assist our child who has an IEP - something we never got at Combs. What a breath of fresh air. We have already seen improvements in our child's responsiveness and learning. Thank you Swift reek!

This school is one of the best kept secrets in the Raleigh area! I have not met a principal yet that is involved with the children in every way like the one here is! The PTA is great, and the education is wonderful! What a great community school!

The quality of academic programs at Swift Creek are very good, there are a variety of choices for the children to choose from especially from third grade and up. Parent involvement is very high, just about any parent you talk to does some kind of volunteer work for the school.
