Swan Meadow School is a unique public school nestled in the agrarian community of Gortner in Garrett County, Maryland. The first school was built in the late 1880s, or early 1890s, for local farming families of different faiths. They soon outgrew the one-room school so they built the second school. In 1958 and again in the 1990s the families designed and built newer and larger facilities, according to county regulations, for a fraction of the county’s usual cost for projects like ours!
Today Swan Meadow’s 50 first through eighth grade students, who are mostly Amish and Mennonite, are taught in three multi-grade classrooms. Our teaching principal, three full-time teachers, three part-time resource teachers, and a secretary, who also serves as a teaching assistant and the school librarian, comprise our grateful staff.
