SWOS helped me discover my true potential in every aspect of my life. Before SWOS I didn't know where my life was taking me. I had no goals and no vision but that all changed when I started to attend SWOS. The staff there are amazing and they don't ever give up on students but rather challenge them in ways that make it possible for students to accomplish. I felt like a regect that belong nowhere but SWOS opened my eyes and exposed me to great people both staff and students. This is definitely a place where students who wouldn't talk to eachother actually communicate. I graduated from SWOS in 2005 but even after I continue to go back to visit. They even helped me with getting into college. Because of SWOS my life is so much better. Anyone would be luck for their child to go to school here. Mary Rose Silas Proud Former Student.
