I cant say that I like the school, when it comes to kids with disabilties. They nothing I have 1 that goes to the high school. They dont treat him like any of the other schools that he has gone to. I have not once seen him bring any papers home to show what he his working on. He gets picked on all the time, and nothing is done. They need to get a speacil ed dictor that knows what they are doing, and how to handle these kids and treat them with the respect they deserve.

We have 4 children attending to this school, and they are all very happy. The enviroment is safe. The teaching staff is amazing. All of my children are a students and involved in sports and college bound programs that are offered through the school system.

The high school has taken a huge turn around in the 2 years that Vicki Enyart has been principal. She is in her third year now and our test scores have risne and we became the most improved school the very first year! There are a lot of programs and curriculum chnages that still need to be done and with Ms. Enyart at the helm we are seeing results. Southwest has been so far behind in everything academically, its a great pleasure to actually see the teachers working on turning this around as well. This is what they want... to teach in a frinedly environment. I'm looking forward to even more changes coming up. We have come a long way from where we were. Parent involvement is even greater than I ever seen it. Our sports are getting back on track and we have a great band and drama program.

First off I want to say that our Principle is wonderful! The High School staff is great! Our new building is awesome. In my case teachers have called me at home to let me know how my children are doing in classes. If they fall behind I know about it right away. If they are ahead I also know about it right away. I am in contact with the teachers and staff and am a frequent visitor there. My son wants to play football but there is not a team. Liability is the issue there. I would like to see a football program, but it is something to talk about in the board meetings.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
