Swift Creek is a traditional calendar school with an enrollment of 540 students which is near our capacity of 545. Many of our parents positively comment on the strength of our staff and about our warm, family style atmosphere. We are a very diverse school and our most recent EOGs demonstrated an 87% passing rate.

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS): We are the only school in Wake County to be a North Carolina Exemplar School (the highest award) for four years is a row. PBIS sets the climate and culture of our school and focuses on recognizing positive student behavior.

Our PTA is very active in our school from fund raising to volunteering in classrooms and they are one of many reasons that our students are successful.

We offer Before and After School Care for a fee.

Check out our website at where you can find more information along with our N.C. School Report Card.
