About Us

Swift River School's Mission and Vision

MISSION:  
Swift River School is a child-centered community where curiosity, compassion, and individuality are at the heart of learning.

VISION:
Swift River is known by the community as “our school”. We are a small, rural school where we greet, welcome and support all.  Our community is inspired by enthusiasm for learning, creativity and social connections.

The student curriculum, both academic and social, is differentiated so that each learner is engaged in rich and meaningful work.  Student achievement and sense of efficacy increase throughout the years.

Students and staff are introduced to the school’s social curriculum that provides rules and guidelines for engaging in collaborative problem solving and conflict resolution.  These strategies are reinforced during directed activities and workshops, and then applied as situations arise naturally throughout the day.

Staff members are empowered to collaborate. They think together, share practices and critically analyze the life of the school and the achievement of the students. Professional knowledge is applied regularly and creatively and shared in a collegial environment during scheduled professional development time.

Swift River School offers a variety of workshops for families. Topics include academic and social curricula. The workshops develop a common language empowering all to be supportive contributors to the learning team.

The Swift River School community members - students, staff, families and townspeople - work together to promote learning for all.







We learn together!
