Swansboro is a wonderful School my daughter has special needs and they take very good care of her
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 4, 2004

I would just like to say that Swansboro Elementary School is one of the premier schools in VA. My daughter started in the vpi program there last year and she is still a student there this year in kindergarten. Swansboro is just such a wonderful school. The teachers there are fantastic as well as the principal,Ms. Farr. They are so caring and nurturing to each and every student there at swansboro. If I had to rate this school on a scale of one to ten I would definitely rate them a high ten. Their curriculum is based on what our children should be learning today. Solid education values and morals that they can carry with them throughout life. I am sure that my daughter will continue to attend swansboro throughout her elementary school years. I cannot see her attending anywhere else. They are amazing!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
