Superintendent’s Message

Mark Sale

Dear Parents of Swain County Students:

The personnel of Swain County Schools are committed to ensuring that every student will achieve his/her highest potential. You, as parents, serve as very important partners in helping us in this commitment. We are pleased to provide you with these report cards that outline information about schools in Swain County. They offer a lot of facts about our schools; however, numbers do not always tell the entire story. Swain County Schools is very fortunate to have many caring teachers and staff who continuously work to improve our schools.

We want our parents to be well informed in every aspect of their student’s education. Please take time to carefully study Swain County Schools’ Report Card. If you need additional information, please feel free to contact the school principal who will set up a conference with your child’s teacher(s).

We certainly appreciate your support of Swain County Schools.
