The county is crazy about test scores, so they really push everyone to take harder math classes, but overall, this school is great. The teachers care a lot about what they do, the area is nice, and the students are always learning and taking advantage of the opportunities there. I spent all of my three years of middle school at Swanson, and although not all of the kids were nice, it gave me an incredibly strong foundation for the rest of my academic career.

My daughter had some unsatisfactory experiences in 6th grade, but the teachers went above and beyond in 7th.
Well, at least 7th grade. Fun, great teachers, really educational...
