High Schools in Swain County Schools


Swain County Schools in North Carolina has only one high school, Swain County High School, which serves 560 students in grades 9-12. The school has a diverse student population, with a significant Native American representation at 18.04%, compared to the state average. However, the school's academic performance is mixed, with some subject areas, like English II and Math III, performing at or above the state average, while others, like Biology and Math I, lag significantly behind.

Socioeconomic challenges are evident, with over 51% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Despite the district's relatively high spending per student at $12,889, Swain County High School's overall performance ranks it 391 out of 626 high schools in North Carolina, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. This suggests that while resources are being allocated, more targeted interventions may be necessary to address the school's performance gaps and support student success.

Overall, Swain County Schools faces a unique set of challenges, with a diverse student population and socioeconomic factors that may impact academic outcomes. While Swain County High School has some areas of strength, such as its performance in English II and Math III, the school's below-average statewide ranking indicates that there is room for improvement in order to provide a high-quality education for all students in the district.
