John Swett High School Reviews

A small community where the teachers and staff become family. A place where education is heavily implied and being the best is motivated. This school has extracurricular activities to help build a student's application. The teachers work side by side with students and aid them in any help or advice that they mad need. This school is also under construction and is remodeling the area to make it look more appealing. However throughout the construction, it does not impose a distraction to a student’s learning. The diverse community also helps create a loving environment where everyone is welcomed and loved despite where they come from! A true gem in the contra costa county!

John Swett High School has had a huge impact on my life. They have prepared me for the college level of academics and have guided me on what I need to prepare for. The teachers challenged me mentally and emotionally to help display the college level of academics. My academic counselor has been a great help ever since she arrived. She answered all my questions, provided me with study materials, and showed me what I need to be successful after high school. I would love to see the facilities improve and the athletics. Since I am a basketball player, I feel that John Swett needs great improvement in those areas.
I joined the John Swett Unified School District after eighth grade summer and started my wonderful high school journey here. After four years of being a Swett student, one thing I can say for sure is that John Swett is one of the most diverse and united schools in California. The students at John Swett are super open-minded and welcoming. Throughout my four year journey, I have never seen a bully or even anyone judgmental. Although the students and staff are great, one thing the school can work on is having better sports and encouraging more students to participate in a sport. This is a problem but it is justified because the school is not very big and has around 600 students only.
