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.

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!
I've been at Swan Valley for 4 years. I can honestly say that I wouldn't have wanted to graduate from any other school. The environment is very welcoming. When you first walk into those school doors, it feels like home. The teachers are very understanding of their students. They not only obtain educational relationship, but also a personal relationship. The teachers will try to help you in any way possible. The desire of Swan Valley High School staff and administrators is that you have the necessary tools to succeed, and have a successful life after high school. Swan Valley is nationally recognized school for its academics and athletics. It's a once in a lifetime school, and I encourage anyone and everyone to attend this school.
