Sward Elementary School Reviews

1 review
Sward school is a wonderful public school that serves its students and the community well. District 123 as a whole is very well run, with caring teachers and involved administrators who care about every aspect of the parent and student experience. My two boys love their friends, the opportunities the school provides, their principal, etc. I love the academic rigor, focus on always working to be the best we can be, the ability for parents to get involved and the diverse student population.

I hope that the school can increase the diversity of its teaching ranks in years to come, since it is currently overwhelmingly white and female. There are many clubs available after school for all ages of students. 4th and 5th graders have more opportunities to get involved with chorus, drama, music and park district sponsored sports teams.

The school prepares students incredibly well for future academic endeavors.
