    The district consists of four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school — each with its own unique identity. They have in common the same high standards and enthusiasm for students.
    At Sweet Home, we teach students human values like respect, responsibility, honesty and concern for others. All of this is encompassed in the district's values education program. Our staff, from the teachers to the bus drivers, strive to ensure Sweet Home is helping each child to realize his or her unique potential.


    Striving for Excellence...
    At Sweet Home, we teach students to be productive citizens while preparing them for success in those endeavors. Whether they plan to continue their education or enter the workforce, students will leave Sweet Home knowing how reading, writing, math, science, language, social studies, music, and art all relate to their future.
    We strive to nurture the talents of every student, and to help them overcome their challenges. We wan them to be excited about learning, and we hope that they will learn to work cooperatively as well as individually to ensure a smooth transition into post high school life. 
    Sweet Home is fortunate to have an outstanding faculty. The enthusiasm, knowledge and general concern for students gives children a distinct advantage, both academically and socially. The qualifications of Sweet Home teachers far exceed most other schools in the nation. The district provides constant support and continued encouragement of staff development through seminars and in-service programs.
