    Student Culture & Diversity: There is many students at school that are involved in extracurricular activities since there is so much to choose from. Students that are involved in the activities are involved in more then one. Since students are involved in more then one they don't have a lot of down time to get in much trouble if any with the amount of work needed to pass their classes. Everyone is accepted but most if not all other teachers and students in the Swan Valley community.

    Resources & Facilities: The new bond that our school recieved the previous year added a great impact on our educational program. It made technology easier and easier for students to access. There has been easy transportation with many buses bringing and taking many students home from school. Parents are involved with the school because most of the parents themselves are from around the area since they were little and know the expectations and push their students to excel. There is lots of time for tutoring, any teacher or student could be asked at any time and they would be willing to help as soon as possible.

    Teachers: Mostly all the staff at my school is very up to date of the knowledge of the topics that they have to teach. Almost all interact with students to verify they understand what is going on and take it to heart if something is wrong or if a student needs help. The teachers are fair and grade students papers fair according to the quality and effort put towards the work that is necessary for a class.

    Administration & Policies: Most if not all the staff at Swan Valley High School is very trustworthy and involved with school in extracurricular activities. The dress code is straight forward and not very easy to break. Compared to most schools we can't wear sweat pants but it is a good thing because it prevents kids from waking out of bed and coming right to school it teaches the kids to be more professional. There is many people watching over the students that the students don't realize when it comes to bullying. Bullying is taken care of and there isn't a lot of it since teachers are very involved with students.

    Extracurriculars: There are many extracurricular activities at my school. They can range from school sports, to the newest addition, the robotics team. All are funded well and get many students involved. There are many different opportunities at my school to better the students in all areas and make them who they are as a person today.
