Swartz Creek Community Schools is committed to providing a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) rich environment for students to flourish in a project based, hands-on learning capacity.

New State of the art STEAM wings on all of our buildings allow students at every grade level the opportunity to flourish in a setting different from that of a traditional classroom.
