Swift Elementary Specialty School Reviews

2 reviews
Our school is noted for being the most diverse school in the CPS district, with over 60 different languages spoken. In our school, there is no such thing as discrimination, and I have never experienced bullying in my eight years of attending.

Ever since the CPS budget cuts, we have not been able to have as many extracurricular activities as we have before, but the teachers and faculty are working hard to make the best out of our circumstances.

The teachers here are very friendly, and do not hesitate to help you. The students are also very invested in the school. This year, we have recently gotten a student council, which enables the student body to have a voice in what happens in their school.

The teachers do a good job of helping students individually when it's needed. Students with special needs are integrated into the classrooms much as possible, which is a great way to remove any stigmas and provide the children with enough experience in social situations.

There are a few ignorant, racist kids here (sadly.) Otherwise, this school is pretty good in mean so of academics and it's socialability. Budget cuts really messed a lot of thing s up, however.
