Swartz Creek High School is an excellent school to attend. The administration at Swartz Creek is very understanding, professional, and cooperative. Every problem I have ever had in the district, upon bringing it to them, I receive their full attention. They do everything they can to help fix problems in the school. I personally am very involved in the arts. I am so proud of the arts programs and education offered at Swartz Creek High School. Swartz Creek has a wonderful performing arts program, with excellent teachers, and an incredible venue to hold performances. They arts are supported by the administration in everything they do.

Loved this school and the friends I made here! Loved pretty much everyone in my class, teachers, clubs, sports etc. Memories I'll carry with me for the rest of my life. However, one of the things I wish would change is faculty, not the teachers, but administration is sub-par at best. They don't know how to help the school or students in the best way possible so instead they sit by and do practically nothing except make everyone around them pissed off. The new principal is quite possible the worst person besides maybe the year book lady who gets the year books for last year ready by next year august...

Overall the teachers truly care about your education, certain counselors actually care about your mental health and are willing to help you every step of the way on anything. Whether that be applying to college, finding a way to graduate, or just sitting and listening to your problems! The counselors and teachers is why I am giving this a four. Would be a two without
Great school and great community support! A very nice place to grow up and hopefully someday am able to send my children to Swartz Creek Community Schools.

The staff and administration are very helpful and personable. The principal and superintendent even made a snow day video when school was called off (again) over this winter.

They definitely make it a fun place to learn and be involved.
