I am doing my student teaching at Swain West and I love it!! It is a great environment to work. I have had a school placement every semester for the past three years and by far Swain West is the best. It is a positive environment. The staff is supportive. There is great community and everyone there takes pride in their school.
Good is never enough. The staff parents and volunteers are always trying to find a way to make things even better!
Wonderful students parents and supportive community...add an amazing faculty and a great new principal who care so much about students - and you have a school that is exactly as it should be!!!
Swain West Elementary is a great place. There is a wonderful community of students parents and teachers who work together to provide the best for each other.
West Elementary School is a wonderful place to learn and work. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team of professionals!! The children are extremely polite and well rounded. The school environment is a very positive one that pushes students on a daily basis to be their personal best. I am excited to get the chance to work here every day!!
West Elementary is off to a great start this school year. Students staff and parents seem very excited about this school year.
I love West because the teachers truly care about the students. There is a high expectation for every child and wonderful families.
Swain West cares about students and student learning. It is a school with concern for every child. We seek to help every student be the best they can and achieve their goals in life. As a teacher for West for the past 10 years I am glad to see the successes of our students through the years. We are not a school with a lot of advantages or money but we are a school with a lot of heart for children!
I retired from working at this school and it consistently strives to be the best for the students. Academics are emphasized but integrity and compassion for the students has been a priority. Teachers are encouraged to try new innovative ideas and if they don't work they are not chastised about them but are told 'try again' or 'at least you tried.' This is a rural community and many families are transferring in to live with other family members due to the economic situation nationally. SC West could use every penny they can get and they would use it for the whole student not just a part.
Swain West is a very safe and caring enviroment. The welfare of the students is not felt only by the principal but all those who have a position at West. West is the BEST!
