My son is currently a 6th-grader at Swigert. I was hesitant to send him to this school because of the neighborhood in which the school is. I visited with 2 counselors both of whom allowed me to tour the school on different occasions visiting classrooms to observe and they spent a great deal of time answering any and all questions I had. After much discussion with my husband we decided to enroll our son. We have been very pleased. Teachers and administrators respond to emails and phone calls immediately and often after hours which shows that they are checking emails after school. My son is in advanced math and his teacher is fabulous. There are many electives even in 6th grade from which to choose. My son is taking the broadcasting class and loves it. Administration is more than willing to help resolve any issue I've raised. Most of the staff is highly attentive. Security is wonderful and I know my son is safe. The school earned a math and science grant which enables every student to have a tablet which has been a curse and a blessing but mostly a blessing. I'm glad my son had the opportunity to attend Swigert.
