John Swett Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

January 19, 2018 Submitted by a parent
My 4th grader is new this year and absolutely loves attending school everyday, and I mean every single day, because she has incredible teachers, a principal and admin. who care and provide great guidance and leadership. This makes all the difference. Their effective, cheerful and positive leadership styles in and out of the classroom, their strategies to engage all their students' academic learning in a fun, interactive and engaging way, their caring and thoughtful approach in helping every kid. Even the most reserved ones become motivated to participate in their safe and supportive environment; while all learn teamwork, leadership, and are gaining character life building skills as a result of this modeling from the leaders at this school. We absolutely appreciate JSE! It is a gem of a school!

My daughter goes to this school. Her teachers so far have been wonderful. I love the fact that teachers use Remind and Twitter. It makes me feel involved even if I am at work all day long and makes for more involved conversations with my daughter. Teachers are very responsive when you have questions. I really like this school a lot.

This school has truly never impressed me. I moved here just to make sure my daughter attended it and why? The office admin is never friendly, the teachers are rude to the families that are not on their "level" so to speak, and the new principle is so lost its unbelievable! Kids are bullied daily. It's to the point my 4th grader is asking me to send her someone else next year!!!!! So much for a top rated school!!!

John Swett Elementary is an amazing school. We moved into this area to be able to have our children attend here. It disheartens me to read the terrible reviews from others here. If these parents are so unhappy, then why don't they ask for a transfer. There are plenty schools who have room in our area. Every principal and staff have their own style. They are not going to make everyone happy all of the time. The entire staff at JSE is involved and do a great job. As a matter of fact, we probably have more children transfer into our school than any other in our district! So if our school is so bad, why would there be so many wanting to attend here? The more you get involved in the your child's education the more successful they will be. Instead of spending your time writing on posts like this about the negative; spend your time volunteering and/or spending time with the people you complain about. They might not be so bad. Give them a chance! This is just very sad to see this. If you grown ups act like this, I sure hope my kids aren't friends with your kids. What are you teaching them??

The school has some truly wonderful and dedicated teachers, which is its main redeeming quality. Since the new principal started, field trips have been stopped and hands-on learning has been replaced with iPads, apps and headphones. The kids rarely seem to engage in collaborative work and exciting learning opportunities are rare. You only have to look at the projects funded on Donors Choose which are mostly for iPads, document cameras and other expensive technology which does little to excite or enthuse the kids and really serves to make the teachers' lives easier. Instead of donating to my own child's school, this year I chose to donate to other schools who were raising money for owl pellet dissections and other hands-on experiences. I just wish my child had the same opportunities at this school.
