Welcome to Swanson, home of the Superstars! 

Carl A. Swanson Elementary School is located in Omaha, Nebraska, one of ten elementary schools within the Westside Community Schools District. Situated in the heart of Omaha and nestled in a 13 acre arboretum, Swanson Elementary serves approximately 300 students annually. Founded in 1959, Swanson has prided itself on delivering high-quality education centered on the ideals of community, innovation and excellence.  Swanson’s enrollment reflects the broad population found within its Omaha community.  Our commitment to excellence is as strong today as it was when they first opened their doors in 1959 and reopened them to a brand new, beautiful building in 2019 which mimics the midcentury neighborhood in which it resides. In a district and a school with the highest of expectations, Swanson has maintained a school culture that has welcomed all students while holding itself and each of its students and staff to high standards. 

We welcome you to reach out, to ask questions, and to visit Swanson!
