I highly recommend that nobody sends their child to this school. Plenty of teachers don't even teach. Last year I was very interested in learning chemistry. Now after being in the class I can't wait to get out. My teacher looks up things to shop for instead of teaching the class. Not to mention that my electrical teacher has barely had us done electrical work in the past two years. We literally spend our time doing labor work struggling to build the school a new gym. My principal is too cheap to hire real professionals.

fresh man class of 2016 seems like a good school so far only one problem theres only 800 students in the entire school but the teachers keep us in check with a good amount of projects and papers
its more like a daycare center nobody teaches in there its a messed up school i made a mistake going to this school
I just graduated from Swenson last year and i miss it a lot. I miss going there to see my friends and teachers. Swenson has the 4th highest test scores than compared to other public schools. There are different career areas on which you can choose in 9th grade for 10th grade all the way until you graduate. I can't be more proud than to be a graduate from Swenson
Ima former student from Swenson and the school is excellent. Great vocational opportunities for students willing to accept them I would attend swenson all over again
Swenson High school has the fourth highest test scores than that of the Philadelphia public school system. It offers great careers to students who are willing to accpet education as an important aspect in their life. I graduated from swenson June 2007 and I couldn't be happier to be a Swenson Graduate.
I am a current student at Swenson and I graduate Next Year. The school has a few good shop classes like networking and auto but some teachers cant teach well because they cannot speak english very well
the school is a good one. a small school that is starting to build extra curricular activities. As well as a reputation for excellence
I went there for two years. The math teachers are ok and the electronics department is good but the rest of the school is a joke. It is a dangerous place to send your child.
My child is currently a student here and I could not be any happier with him and the school. I would recommend this school to anyone.
