Swallowtail school goes beyond education! It is a community and mindful place to raise children. I will always be grateful for the years I had at Swallowtail! Cher Levendosky is the greatest Administrator and has lead this school towards continual success!

I am grateful to everyone at this school. Senora Jean thank you for the years of Spanish. Josclyn, Heather and Jessica thank you for caring for the little ones. Mr. Noah you are a huge gift to the school in farming and animal husbandry. And a huge thank you to the office staff and Brenda McCoy for your great work as the enrollment coordinator building the school up. Keep on shining bright Swallowtail!

Compassion, caring and empathy is modeled and upheld within the community! If folks don't uphold it they call eachother out on it.

Today is my son's last day of first grade. He loves his school and his teacher. I don't think I have EVER heard him say he doesn't like school or that he doesn't want to go to school. I think it is a testament to the teacher and the school that even in this last week of the school year he is sad that he won't get to go back to school until fall.

Swallowtail School has given my daughter a LOVE of school! Instead of I hate school, we now hear I LOVE my school and she can't wait to return after weekends and holidays. This school truly provides education for the whole child. The teachers focus on curriculum AND character. They also have such an incredible knowledge of child development and temperaments that I am constantly learning from them and gaining effective tools to use with both of my children at home. I finally feel like my children will get the education they need, in a place they will truly enjoy learning. Thank you Swallowtail!
