Swanson Middle School

5800 North Washington Boulevard
Arlington, VA 22205

Swanson Middle School, located in the Westover community, has changed and grown with the county of Arlington. Several major renovations have occurred since the school opened in 1940. The most recent renovations are due for completion during the 2004-2005 school year. The additions will complement the gracious architecture of this historic school. Program highlights include interdisciplinary team teaching, flexible scheduling, a teacher advisory program, exploratory options and extensive after-school activities. The Swanson staff is selected and educated specifically to teach young adolescents. We have high expectations for all of our students and place great value on the concepts in our motto "Service-Spirit-Scholarship." We approach instruction systematically with clear goals and objectives, recognize and value cultural differences, maintain a positive classroom climate, and strive to foster a positive home/school relationship. At Swanson, we believe success is a team effort and our team consists of students, parents, teachers, and staff.
