Sweetwater Community School

Sweetwater is not just an alternative school but a school with alternatives.  Our class sizes tend to be smaller with every classroom having a highly qualified teacher who is ready to provide the necessary skills and strategies students need in order to be successful. 

We provide instruction for students in grades 7 through 12. For those busy students who are looking for a flexible schedule Sweetwater offers classes both day and night.  The night classes are available to high school students both in and out of our school district’s boundaries. 

Sweetwater is an AdvancEd-accredited high school that requires 20 credits to graduate.

Attendance

24 Hour Attendance Line – 602.449.2301

Attendance is very important to your child’s educational success. If your child is absent from school due to an illness, medical appointment, etc., it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to contact the attendance office.  Parents have 24 hours from the start of their student's absence to call the attendance line and excuse it.   
 
Please provide documentation for medical absences. Unexcused absences will result in consequences for the student. Please feel free to the attendance office with any questions or concerns.  The Sweetwater staff works closely with our students and parents to ensure success of all of our students.
