As parents, we often question our decisions when it comes to our kids. One of THE best decisions we ever made for our children was enrolling them in Swain. Swain is a school where children don’t just learn, they thrive! Whether your child is an athlete, musical talent, theater extraordinaire, academic achiever, or a true community service servant, the opportunities are here to nourish & grow their minds & spirits. The teachers at Swain aren’t just teachers…they’re real educators with passion, experiences, awesome personalities, & hold the true magic to igniting a child’s imagination. Swain encourages family interaction, travel, out-of-the-box thinking, individualism, & working cohesively together. The Swain School enriches its children with learning & practicing kindness, acceptance, manners, & real positive thinking. Beyond basics, they’re taught how to approach & solve real world problems. The depth of learning & fun at Swain is truly priceless!

From the start, EVERYONE involved with the school welcomed us with open arms and as though we were a part of a family. They inform you of their goals and maintain communication about progress throughout the year. As a parent, they fully include us with our daughter's education, without any considerable effort on our part. The most telling sign of the quality of the school is the obvious difference in the students. They carry themselves differently than others their age and can easily hold a conversation with an adult. I tell anyone who will listen, how impressed I am with the students at Swain!
When I'm approached by a parent looking for school options for their child I enthusiastically suggest Swain for so many reasons. The education is second to none, but it's more than that... I feel secure knowing that when I drop my First Grader off every day that he's in the hands of his extended family. He's engaged in a familial and nurturing culture that develops his emotional intelligence as well his maturity. Swain also recognizes diversity, by giving families of all backgrounds the ability to explore a private education. Our experience at Swain has been extraordinary. From the teachers to the programs, we highly recommend Swain school for the education, the culture and the love.
