    This school has been closed for several years and it is an immense blessing that this school was closed. To be frank going to school here was a horrible experience full of subpar teachers and intolerable classmates.

    My daughter has attended SWOY since K. She is now in 2nd. I am pleased with her academic growth as well as her social evolvement as she was extremely shy in years past. Overall I am pleased with her progress.

    My children are in K & 2nd and have been students since PK. My overall experience has been great. The principal is a blessing. My kids' teachers have been wonderful. The office staff is very helpful & supportive; however the building could use some much needed renovations.

    The middle school students are grouped in small groups to best benefit their educational needs.

    The current overall condition of the school's chattels furniture and physical structure is in need for improvement. The teachers work very hard to ensure student success. My son and daughter had an English teacher who worked relentlessly with them at all hours to improve their knowledge of grammar and composition. Many of the students were published either in print or on the Internet.
