Swenke Elementary School
Grateful to: Teacher

I would like to thank Mrs. Dunbar for all her hard work with the children. My daughter loved 4th grade because of Mrs. Dunbar. She would take the time to write something special about Isabella's conduct every week on her conduct sheet and Isabella looked forward to reading it every week. One week, she even took the time to spell out Isabella's name and write a positive adjective for each letter. Isabella would pack her backpack carefully each night with highlighters and colorful pens to grade papers at school to make the other children feel special like Mrs. Dunbar did. She volunteered to help Mrs. Dunbar with any special projects because she loved helping her. Not for any reward or special treat just because it made her feel good. Isabella would pray for Mrs. Dunbar when other children would not listen so she wouldn't get frustrated. Mrs. Dunbar showed Isabella how to be a good person all the time, not just when someone is looking or you want something and especially when things are rough, because it's the right thing to do. Thanks again Mrs. Dunbar for a great year. Isabella has the possibility of making straight A's for the entire 4th grade year!

I've had 3 kids attend Swenke. Most of the time I'm happy with it. For example whenever one of my children had difficulty with something, the teachers offer tutoring. They are on top of it that way. They offer some before/after school activities (fit girls, iron boys, chess club, choir). I do have complaints about the overcrowding of this school (as well as many schools in the district). They are WAY overcrowded. They have to hold classes in trailers in the back, which I believe are unsafe for children to be in. The principal & AP are responsive to concerns, but they certainly don't go out of their way to fix anything. One of the nurses is horrible. Parental involvement is almost too much. Parents are at every event. Cafeteria stuff is NOT helpful at all. My kids always complain that the lunch ladies yell at them. The stickers they put on the kids annoy me. No kid should have to wear a bright red sticker telling the world they owe lunch money. More than once, the school stickers ruined clothes. I also stopped writing a note when I need to get my child early-it's pointless. They're never ready to go. Overall I like the school. With just a few improvements, it'd be a stellar school!

The only reason I am giving Swenke 3 stars is because of the first year it was open. Administration during that year was supportive, warm and welcoming for children. New administration has caused the school to be run like a business. Experienced teachers have been run off. Students are not prepared for middle and high school. For example, we were told that it was 'district policy' that homework was only graded for completion. Imagine my (and my children's) shock when we enrolled in another Cy-Fair elementary school - and not only is homework graded, points are deducted if it is late! Guess the 'district policy' at Swenke was just a way to cater to the parents. This doesn't teach life lessons.

We absolutely love Swenke, excellent school with awesome teachers and staff. This is our second year and coming from another school in CY-Fair ISD we still noticed a huge difference. The communication with the teachers is impressive, all the parents are very involved and we have an awesome PTO!! My kids love Swenke!

We are wrapping up our second year here at Swenke and I'm so happy to have such a wonderful school for both my soon to be 3rd grader and Kindergartener to attend next year. The staff all genuinely care about each student and the teachers are really top notch! Lots of communication and a positive, encouraging learning environment. Even the ladies in the cafeteria make an amazing effort to learn each students name and greet them as they get their lunch with a smile. The small things make such a big difference and this school shows it!

Very disappointed with the staff at Swenke the past two years. We have been at Swenke since it opened and is not the school it use to be.

We love Swenke. The teachers are caring and challenge each student to achieve his/her highest potential. Parents are very involved and community support is amazing. Swenke has a strong PTO with a focus on student development. My child entered Kinder in 2009 (Swenke's first year) and is now entering 3rd grade and I can honestly say that our school just gets better every year.

We have nothing but positive things to say about Swenke. We began last year in Kinder and now are in 1st grade. Love the enthusiasm and dedication. Parents ARE involved.
