I have 3 kids that go to this school. One is in the 10th grade and has disabilitys, this makes his second year at this school. Ever since he statred going I have had nothing but problems. He gets picked on all the time and gets sent to office he usually gets in trouble for someone picking on him. The speacial ed dictor says things at our IEP revievw like I wish he would have scored 3 points lower on his IEP so we could send him to the state school. What kind of person would tell a parent this. It was really uncalled for. It is not my sons fault that he is disabiled. He got really sick when he was 3 and half he has come a very long way. They should show more respect.

I spent several years living in large cities both on the East coast and in the Midwest. It was a real struggle for me to enroll my son in a school that was this small. I felt that larger schools would provide more of an academic challenge and diverse environment for my kindergartener. He is now in 2nd grade at Southwest Elementary and I couldn't be happier. Not only do the elementary teachers know who he is, and speak to him, but so do many of the upper school students and faculty. He has been blessed with 3 teachers who truly love and care about the children in their classroom. My son is advanced in his school work and all of his teachers have taken the time to challenge him and provide new learning opportunities. I don't regret for a single minute that I enrolled him in Southwest.

You know i thought this was a GREAT school but now i have found out this school is nothing. i cant believe that a principle would let bullying go on. i have 4 grand daughters & 2 great nephews and they get bullyed EVERY DAY and nothing is done. the blame is put on the one that is getting bullyed.why dont they open their eyes! are they scared of the student? or the parents? this principle needs to step back and watch what is happening before one of these students are hurt or killed by one of these kids! i am proud to say if i had my way my family would not be going to this school.

this school tells parents (well me) that there is nothing they can do to some body for bulling other students. Do you all think that this is fair? i have came to the point that i have told my kids to do anything they can to defend there selfes. what is a parent to do when the school will not take action? yes my children are new comers to this school but no that does not give the school the right to say'THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO' what is the principal job than? thank you, a concerned mother
