  • My daughter attends SWHS. She loves the school and the non-snobbish people. Ask her if she wants to anywhere else and she will tell you real quick NO. So thanks to all the wonderful staff at SWHS. Keep doing what you are doing.

  • It doesn't teach anything and all they do is give their sports players good enough grades to keep playing it is not a good school at all. that is why i transferred out of there because i wasn't learning anything.

  • Great small school. I went there K-12 and enjoyed the small feel of it. I wished there had been more after school activities but I understand the school is small and the budget was the problem. Kind of school where everyone knows everyone.

  • This school was awesome. I loved it and still do. The teachers there were the best, even though I don't go there anymore I would like to thank the following:Mrs.Lewis,Coach Davis,Mrs.Adeylotte, and Mrs. Walker. They are the ones who prepared me for the school I am at now. Sweet Water is full of people who are just laid back and go with the flow. There is none of the snobby stuff you see anywhere else.I wish them the best of luck.I MISS SWEET WATER and think of it constantly.
