I would never have my child at any other school!! My 4th grader was attending Pope elem and my pre-k3 and pre-k4 were attending swift. I moved my 4th grader mid year to swift bc i could not get over how welcoming caring and motivated the staff and teachers are here. I wish i had known about this school before we had sent my son to Pope. I am so pleased.

I was concerned at first because only one other family in our neighborhood went to Swift. Others were in private or other "better-rated" AISD schools. Our daughter was in a private, charter school for Pre-K and rather continue private, we thought we would try it after having a good experience at Swift's Kindergarten Round-Up. We have never regretted our decision! I would equate the diversity of Swift to our former private school and the teachers and administration know us by name. We have opportunity to get involved as room parents, and through Falcon Fathers, a dad's club, and will be joining the PTA board next year because the other involved parents are wonderful. Our daughter has been there two years and is at a grade level ahead on reading due to her teachers recognizing her abilities and not allowing her to be bored, but continually challenging her so she continues to excel to be advanced in her education. They have great extra-curriculars such as chess club, writers club and a Destination Imagination team. I talk about how much we love Swift whenever I meet someone in our neighborhood who has their child elsewhere. They wasted time camping out for a transfer! Glad we did not!

I have two kids at Swift, who have been there since Kindergarten(now 4th & 5th grade), & it's an awesome school! The teachers are well prepared and truly care about the kids, & the staff(especially the principal) really does a great job supporting what's best for the kids. The diversity of the families at Swift is an added bonus. We wouldn't want to have our kids in any other school!

Even at a time in Texas when the 'TAKS test' rules most educational decisions, the administrators, teachers and staff of Swift Elementary consistently make decisions based on what is right for children.

Excellent school! great teachers and staff and it also has a great involvement of parents in different activities (e.g. dads club). One of the things I like the most is the great socio-cultural diversity that you see in the students (diverse in both ethnic background and socioeconomic status), which definitely enriches the experience for all students. Obviously, other (very few) public schools in town might have better test scores but this is more reflective of the socio-economic background of the area rather than the quality of the teachers/staff.

The teachers, office staff, principal and counselor all genuinely care about the children at Swift. I am consistently impressed by their teaching, positive methods of discipline and genuine concern for the well-being of their students. My son has been at Swift since a transitional period in Kindergarden, and I have paid the transfer fee each year just to ensure that he can continue to go to this wonderful school. I can't think of another school in the entire AISD I would rather him be at.

This was a great school when we attended a couple of years back. We are now at another school and we can really see the difference. They approach teaching from the point of view of preventive, rather than correction of problems. We would return to this school if we were to move back into the area.

This school is great. My child has attended Swift from Pre-k to 3rd go so far and our family has established great relationships with the Principle, the faculty in the office and the teachers. The teachers are attentive and very supportive with their students. I am very satisfied with my daughther continuing he education at Swift until the 6th grade.

This school is great, only problem is that about 3-4 teachers are very harsh and do not discipline in emotionally health ways.

We didn t know much about Swift Elementary or AISD when we moved here. We were afraid we were moving into a lesser school district. We have been pleasantly proven wrong. This is a great school. My child was reading below average at the beginning of the first grade. Because of Swift s reading program and one on one attention he can now read at or above average. He has had a great year this year. We look forward to our younger two going to Swift Elementary.

I wouldn't want my child any where else right now. Swift has been the best for both of my children. Don't let test scores fool you. There is plenty of learning going on in the halls of Swift. I wish I could have went there when I was a child. Teachers and parents make it happen at Swift.
