I liked how the academics in my classes challenged me to do better and prepare me for college. I would love to see more diversity, as an African-American I go through things students and staff don’t go through and don’t feel connected to the people I see everyday. The counseled needs to be more interested in their job and help students with their problems. I believe mental health comes first more than school and the counselor didn’t help me at all with my situation which is still ongoing.

Rigorous school that will undoubtedly prepare you for the next level. The teachers are fantastic, the sports programs are top notch, and students always feel safe.
Swan Valley High School is a great school full of opportunities and encouragement. Our school puts forth a lot of activities to keep our students involved such as our Friday Night Lights on the football field, where we play a movie for the student body. Our school is engaged and dedicated to encourage each other and enjoy the days we have with our classmates. We also are a very well educated school and have put forth a lot of opportunity and learning developments. We have been associated with an IPad grants since i was a freshman. I have to say that the technology during school did have its disadvantages at first, such as distractions and cheating in class, but our school board has put a handle on the situations at hand quite well. The IPads have kept our students intact with the newest technology developments in the world and has found a way to encourage learning through a more efficient and creative process.
