Swan Valley High School Reviews

I attended Swan Valley Schools my whole life. The teachers are great, the food is decent, and the atmosphere is friendly! The academics are very prestigious and prepare the students for their future endeavors, the athletics are phenomenal, and the teachers are wonderful!
We have a ton of options for extracurricular activities. There are a ton of sports clubs that all have a huge amount of kids tryout. Our school doesn't really cut students from sports, they try to find the right team for them and make sure they play a little in every game or every other game. We have student government, BPA, national honors society, quiz bowl, robotics and many more. All with a huge amount of student involvement and tons of awards won. A good amount of our students and past students have been nationally and state ranked in sports and clubs.
Swan Valley is a wonderful public school. Most, if not all, of the staff is caring, open, happy, and willing to help. The activities offered are diverse, fun, and any student has the opportunity to join. I have had a wonderful time as a student at Swan Valley and am grateful for such a great high school experience.
