    I love this School! We a blessed that my son is able to attend thats to Magnolia not meeting no child left behind in 2006. I was almost at whits end untill we had a chance to choose another school for him. We choose Swift due to all the great Staff and Mrs. Thorpe reputation. My son has a great education thanks to a Great School! We have had great teachers so far. Mrs. Lutz and Mrs. Rowe go beyond my expectations. They love their job and love their students as well. Great Job Teachers and Staff!

    I have two children at Swift School and both of them enjoy attending there. I love the small classes that allow teachers to get more involved with the children.

    Swift School is the best kept secret in Baldwin County. The leadership of Sandra Thorp is one of Love for her Job along with love of the community.The teacher and staff are top notch. I have had 3 Children in Swift and would recommend this school to anyone.

    I feel blessed to be able to offer my two children the wonderful opportunities Swift elementary under the leadership of Sandra Thorpe provides. I have no doubt that Mrs. Thorp has the best interest of my children and all swift children in her heart and will stop at nothing to insure the best learning experience for all.

    Teachers are great!Thank you for teaching our children. The school was much better when Mrs. Miller was the Principal. She ran the school with love for her job as well as the children. Not to get brownie points from her friends at the board of education. Also Thank you to the ladies who cook and clean the school. You all do a great job. I'm sure you all miss Mrs. Miller as well.

    My daughter attended Swift for 2 years we ALL loved the school and the staff. Our family lost our home due to Hurricane Ivan and we several caring gestures for my entire family. The teachers were always helpful and willing to take time and explain situations that may arrive. We had to relocate and my daughter was forced to switch schools which broke our hearts. She truly had 2 wonderful years at Swift and misses the school and the staff tremendously. At first glance the school does not seem to have the opportunities as other larger schools but once you enter your mind is instantly eased. I would recommend Swift to anyone and everyone! Words are unable to express our fondness for this school!

    my children attended swift school for a brief time while we were in temporary housing. It was such a great experience. Even though they were there a short time they still talk about it. They loved their teacher and the kids there were great and accepting. Swift school may not have the best physical facility around but you will soon find that's not what really matters!

    I love this school! My 10 year old attended Swift last year for the first time. The teachers and faculty were a great help with every thing my child needed. My daughter has really enjoyed going there and has started her 5th and last year there. I am sure we will miss Swift School very much next year.

    Swift School is an awesome school. I love the fact that all the teachers know all the students by name whether or not they are in their classroom. Parent involvement is tremendous. The teachers are qulified and approachable.
