I have worked at this school for the last 4 years and I love it. It is not a perfect school, but it is the best school I've ever worked at. Most of the teachers will go above and beyond for their students. Parents are always welcome. I am very happy to be working at Southwest!
Academic is good, SWHS has a dedicated teachers that motivate students, at the beginning I was concern, but the school follows the district or government programs, it depends of each student. The school is bicultural /bilingual due to the closest with Mexico and helps each student to make the transition to a new country less painful w/ second language programs The school has mariachi and Mexican folklore dance among others but it will be good add piano lessons, electrical guitar that many young people like. Sports are available basket, soccer and tennis but you need to motivate the students to participate (tennis courts need maintenance as well that foot ball stadium) There is the MECHA assoc where young kids get together helping to their school and persons who need it. My involvement is not that close due to my work but I ask my daughter about any news and attending to some meetings w/teachers.
Good school with an excellent program for the performing and visual arts.
It has a great GATE and AP program. it also offers more than 25 sports and clubs to join. The teachers are o.k. The principal is fair and does listen to the alumni. There are lots of activities and it has great classrooms and the teachers are almost perfect.
This high school has some of the best leaders in the county. The principle is very fair and patient with all of the children.
The school has a wonderful Performing Arts Academy and the GATE courses are great.
