Glenn O. Swing Elementary


Our Mission:
It is the mission of Glenn O. Swing Elementary to provide students with opportunities that promote high levels of achievement and build a community that inspires students to give back and love learning. 

Our Vision:
Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Learn

At Glenn O. Swing Elementary we believe in high expectations for all. In fact, our vision for our school is that our students will be Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn each and every day. We teach them the importance of these attributes through frameworks such our Essential 30 and Second Step as well as through the expectations they are taught in the classrooms. Students are taught to persevere on tasks and show a willingness to improve their assignments until they meet expectations. We believe that all of this is necessary for success in their chosen career field, college, and life.  
Our certified and support staff work together everyday to meet student needs and help them achieve their individual goals. Our staff works with students in both small group and whole class settings to teach standards and intervene when students need more time to learn. Our staff works collaboratively to learn and deeply understand the content they teach, in order to better understand what individual students will need to learn. Our Community Learning Center after-school program also works with our teachers to provide academic assistance to students to help them find success in their classroom.  
We strongly believe in the value of teaching children to give back to their community. Every student in our building participates in at least one service learning project per year. Glenn O. Swing has been recognized as a School of Contribution for more than 10 consecutive years.  
Students are provided opportunities to express themselves in the creative and performing arts. Through a collaboration with the Carnegie Arts Center, students are provided opportunities to explore dance, drama, music, and visual arts. In addition our Community Learning Center offers extension opportunities such as Glee, Drama, Gardening and Robotics Club.
