At Swallows, I liked how close students could get to eachother. The class sizes were small, which really helped when a student needed more individualized attention. However, there are many downsides to Swallows. They don't have a very wide variety of sports or clubs. The school is also very small. During passing periods, the halls get so packed one cannot really move at all. Next year, there are rumors that the high school is being moved across the street to an old restaurant building and the middle school is going to be the whole high school building and what they currently have. A few years ago, Swallows spent most of their money on a new gym and caffeteria. While this is all well same good, they could have spent the money on an actual school instead of an old super market and a few modulars.

Swallows has been a wonderful school and has done very well with adhering to all of their students. They have a wonderful Concurrent Enrollment program where you only have to buy your books and they do a wonderful job making sure you're on track in your schooling. The only thing I would say is a bit troublesome is sometimes the access to school guidance counselors is a bit difficult.
Swallows is an amazing school that helps foster and grow creativity. I loved being a student at swallows and have the one on one interactions with teachers.
