John Swett High School Reviews

John Swett Highschool is definitely known for an academic school. Albeit, this is true, I am a transfer student and I have to say that it is not as challenging as my prior school. Some teachers are very lenient because most of the time, the average score of the whole class is a C. Several teachers are very scrupulous and grades inaccurately. I also observed several teachers give special treatments to others. For example, they would round a student’s grade up and not the other student who has a higher percentage. Unjust fairness is very apparent. The rest of the teachers, they take their job seriously and provide the same treatment to every student. Awarding and recognizing students for their efforts are truly appreciated because it motivates more students to do better in class. There are also a library filled with books, computers, and printers that are essential. There are handful options for sports. Overall, an average rating is a fair judgement due to these reasons.

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 is a very small school located in Crockett, California. If you're scratching your head right now trying to figure out where it is, it's near San Francisco. Currently, there is construction being done on the school, which does make quite a stressful school environment but the students are doing the best they can to persevere. The building itself has been around for over a 100 years, but it has had several renovations throughout its lifetime. As a senior (citizen) in the John Swett Unified School District (J.S.U.S.D) I have learned how special our school is terms of diversity because there are many people of different backgrounds that attend John Swett.
