Swinburn is a great place for kids of all abilities to learn and succeed. The teachers and administrators dedication to each child's individual success is unequalled. One of the best things about Swinburn/Tulia is that my children learn how to live in a society with others that are not exactly like them whether it is a different learning ability, socioeconomic situation, lifestyle, cultural or educational background.

Swinburn Elementary is a great place to work and for students to get a great education. Test scores are high, students are motivated, teachers are dedicated, and administrators care.
