Swampscott Public Schools Reviews

I am currently attending the Swampscott High School. I think the school is overall good, we have a great variety of clubs and after school activities for every interest on might have. We offer a lot of different AP classes, and honors classes. Our school also offers the STEM Certificate, and the Global Competency Certificate as well as Duel Enrollment so we can take classes at a college level to challenge ourselves. The school also has foreign exchange programs and often initiates field trips to different parts of world. Recently our school has been nominated as one of the several Blue Ribbon Schools in the Country, which goes to show that although our school is not perfect, we are actively working to perfect it.

Swampscott public schools got you where you need to be. They had many resources to use for anybody who attended. It was nothing short of helpful. However throughout the years, the teaching staff was always being changed or let go. It wasn’t good after you became close with them.
I want to see more understanding towards diversity and what students of color go through. The school lunches have given people multiple times food poisoning or have not been cooked thouroughly.
