If you are considering the best schools in the area, SEA should be on you list of places to tour. The campus, teachers, curriculum, and student body are fabulous. Ask about "The Kind Zone".

Sweetwater has been home for our family for more than 8 years. Not only have our children formed life long friendships, but also we have found an extended family in this sweet, small community. The teachers are the heart of this school and their love for teaching shows up everyday. We have always experienced an "open door policy" with the teachers in the event we need to communicate or schedule a meeting. The curriculum is challenging, but at the same time fun for the children. The "hands on" teaching seems to reach into the minds of all types of learners. We love to attend chapel every week with the children, as it is a great way to stay connected. The extended opportunities for learning and fellowship also make Sweetwater unique. The field trips are exciting and exceed expectations at every grade level. We love the performing arts program that allows all the children to have an opportunity to participate in both Christmas and spring programs every year. The Parents Club and community events are like the icing on the cake, giving the families a real sense of belonging.
