Welcome to Cecil Swanson School!
Our school serves elementary age children in the Rundle community. There are over 400 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 arranged in straight grades that attend our school. Sixty-six percent of our students have English as their second (or third or fourth) language and 21% are identified as having special learning needs. We have two SKILL classes for students with moderate to severe cognitive challenges. Children are encouraged to be physically active and many participate in organized sports.
At Cecil Swanson, "kids are number one." Our students are our purpose for being, and all decisions are made with this belief in mind. Curriculum is adapted to meet student needs and all teachers work in teams.
We have high expectations for our students. We believe parents and staff must work together to ensure students develop a feeling of self-worth, a sense of responsibility for their actions, and an ability to discipline themselves.
