Sweetwater City School District


Sweetwater City School District


The Sweetwater City School System serves children from the city of Sweetwater and the first district of Monroe County from preschool through eighth grade.

Mission Statement

We are charged with improving the lives of the children in our school community. Every decision we make and every action we take must be based on one criterion - that which is in the best interest of our children. It is our responsibility to provide a quality learning environment, knowing that children learn best: * When they are involved; * When they experience success academically and socially; * When their emotional needs are met in a nurturing environment; * When they feel safe and secure; * When learning is meaningful; * When parents and adults are involved; * When the teacher accepts professional responsibility for the child's learning; and * When they are taught at their developmental level. A child, upon leaving the Sweetwater City Schools, should have a firm academic foundation, particularly in language arts and math, for continued learning in high school and beyond and should be prepared to become a responsible member of the community.
