The Swanton school system is improving from what it was years ago. I believe the teaching staff is getting better all the time and becoming more responsible and involved.

Swanton School soars above the rest in all areas in my opinion. The leadership and staff have student acheivement and saftey as a priority, however the focus is first on becoming good people- citizens of the school and the community. The teachers care about the students and are involved with the administration in decision making. Parents are valued and encouraged to be an active parent of their child's education. The PTO is active, meeting monthly usually with a principal in attendance, giving parents a monthly opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback. Family activities occur throughout the year.

I believe that this is a terrific school. In looking for a new home, I made it a requirement that we stay in this town so my children can remain in this school. My children are above level on math and reading and they are both challanged with higher levels of work. The staff is terrific and the disciplinary tactics are A+. There are many opportunities for the parents to be involved,in some capacity. There are always family functions happening to improve the family structure and the community closeness. As a parent, I appreciate the professionalism that I receive, as well as the compassion my children receive. Kudos to the teachers and paraeducators and may you continue to positively grow!

My child is a stuggling IEp student and has had to stuggle with feeling different because of the constant pull outs of the classroom. This is tough on the ego of any child, my concerns are not addressed and I fear because of this my child will be counting down to the day that my child can leave school for good. my child reads at a higher level independantly than my child does out loud yet my child is not allowed to read books at the higher level. comprehension should be tested, not reading outloud. The principal has no clue how to work as a team member, but loves to preach it. They also get rid of anyone who truely cares for children and thier education, based on incidents that are not related to the individual concerned.

I have 2 children whom attend Swanton Elementary School and I couldn't be happier. I find that it is very well run with extremely dedicated veteran and new teachers. Just looking at this site and using the 'compare schools' tool tells me that our teachers are doing a great job. There is not another shcool in Franklin or Grand Isle counties that exceed our test scores in both Reading & Math categories. If a school beat us in Reading then we had a higher Math score and vice versa. I think discipline is fair in our school and we have a super staff whom takes bullying & harrassment very seriously. The only thing that I can see the school is lacking is enough parent involvement. It is always a handful of people whom try to do everything and so much more could be achieved for our children if everyone pithed in!

Overall the school is a a good school. There are a couple of teachers who are not there for the kids but most are there because they love teaching kids. If we could only get a principal who would learn how to deal with parents with valid concerns the school would be a better place. There's no use having a home school compact if they don't care what the parents have to say!!
