Success After Swift
Each student's journey is unique, but each student's goal is always the same: to be successful in their next educational environment. Swift's focus on building a foundation of literacy skills, confidence, and self-advocacy prepares them to thrive in school and in life. Our stories of success after Swift illustrate how well our students are prepared for what lies ahead.
"Swift gave me the confidence to talk to teachers, and self-advocacy has helped me in my new school. I love being in a large school now."
“I had very low self-confidence because of my reading challenges. I was getting by at the minimum with most subjects, but Swift gave me a smaller learning environment tailored to my needs."
“I still go back and visit Swift because of how important this school is and how big of an impact the teachers made in my life."
"I loved the Swift School environment and my teachers who poured themselves into us. The teachers displayed patience and constantly shared uplifting words.”
“The OG Approach helped me learn and understand things I struggled with. It’s ingrained in me now, and I do not even realize I am using it.”
