This school has helped me so much with behavior, academics, and just being social in general. Before I came to Schwetteman I was on O.S.S. more the I was attending school. This school has turned me around. I have great attendance and acceptable grades. The one on one time with the teachers is a great help to me. Thank you Harry Schwetteman Education Center.
