School Reviews

We cannot be happier with the decision we made to send our son to the Swift School to assist with his dyslexia. He spent 4 years at Swift and is now thriving in public high school. The teachers, administration and academic programs at Swift are amazing! They presented and taught the material in a way that he could understand. This positive experience provided him with the ability to believe in himself, have confidence and be able to self advocate. Thank You Swift!
