Purple Star School

Swanson Middle School is in the process of transitioning to become a “Purple Star” School. Purple Star schools are designated and approved by the Virginia Department of Education, and show that the school has demonstrated prioritization of readiness to support the social-emotional challenges military-connected students face.

The Arlington Public School Board passed a resolution publicizing our district’s support for military students and families.  For more information about military families at APS, please visit this website: https://www.apsva.us/military-families/
