Being on swim team was the most memorable thing to me about being a student of SCHS, the school wasn't the greatest, most of the students were self-absorbed, stuck up snobs who had probably never had to actually struggle to fit in, or deal with being made fun of due to a physical disability, but the science teachers were great! I the opportunity to create a lifelong bond with someone truly exceptional, my biology teacher, also my swim coach and a real friend in my eyes. I owe every great memory I have from my time at SCHS to Mrs. Carrie Church formerly known as (Coach Carrie Thomas), without her support, acceptance, and help, I would have never truly felt I belonged. She made my last 3 years of high school something worth remembering.

I would like to see the athletics department value sports more. The school wouldn’t give the Poms team practice space during the summer, they wouldn’t allow us to buy uniforms, music, and other things that are very important for our season and competitions. It has made the season incredibly difficult and very frustrating for my coach. She has had to pay for things out of her own pocket because we’re so far behind and need certain things in order to be ready to compete. I want to see the school shift their priorities and give attention to more than just the football team. There is a lot of talent in our athletics but having a school that doesn’t support those teams makes it so much harder for them to reach their potential.
Although, I do like the amount of classes/AP classes offered at my school. There are a lot of opportunities to to get a great education and build your future early which I appreciate a lot.
The past four years at Swartz Creek have been very interesting. I have had two different principals, and 3 different assistant principals, so things are always changing. I really enjoy the teaching staff we have. I have always felt like the teachers genuinely care about the students as individuals, as well as caring about our academics. There is very little discipline though. Our major problem as a school is the students misbehaving. Overall, I have had a good experience while attending Swartz Creek.
