I like the environment of our school, many of the teachers really believe in us and encourage us to do our best. I really appreciate all that the teachers do for us but I feel like the administration is lax. The administration doesn't communicate information with students and families very well, many things feel last minute when we get information.

When I was at Swansea some of the teachers were great and then some of them didn't care if we graduated or not. It really showed and unfortunately the teachers who cared are the same teacher who taught the honor classes. The honor kids already care enough for themselves to strive for a better future and push themselves. It is the kids that weren't doing very well in school that needed the support and drive of the honor teachers. I wish people paid more attention to those students because Swansea is a high poverty area and we are only going to change that by investing in those students and making them want a better life so that will go out and achieve their dreams to break the cycle of poverty in Swansea.
The school does not interact in any way with the community. They do not go try to get parents or kids involved. The teachers depend on chromebooks to teach the kids and barely even teach themselves. My daughter had trouble with Math this year and was told to get on her chromebook and google how to solve the problem. The band program was our saving grace and helped her get through her years at this school.
