SWAG is a place where students can get homework help or ask for extra support with their grades or college. SWAG is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. College students come and help Oakland High students after school from around 3:30 till 5 p.m. in room 222.
SWAG, which stands for Students Who Achieve Greatness, takes students on field trips to college and do other fun activities like bringing cupcakes or play games with students to get to know them and other people that come to SWAG. They also help with college applications and they give students guidance with college.
Victor Hu, an ESA sophomore, said, “I’ve been to SWAG a few times and it helped improve my GPA.”
The college students usually check out questions to figure out what homework help or questions about college that students might have. Students do their homework for the first hour then if students have questions, students can ask the leader and the helpers of the classroom they help regardless of the questions that students might have if students are confused.
“I recommend more people to go to SWAG because SWAG is a place that will help students bring up their GPA and give students advice on college,” said Hu.
If students have questions or concerns, regardless of students grade level or pathway just ask Ms. P in the Wellness Center. Also make sure students bring their homework and their brain!
