I have only attended Southwest for two years and the school has already provided great opportunities. I am a Fashion Design major. In just a few months I learned how to sew. Two years of learning these skills and I've made several garments. Enough about me, the school is great at participating in community service. Each major does different activities to help the community. As a fashion major, I made sling packs for the less fortunate and helped to run a Girl's In Tech conference (helps empower and give confidence to middle school girls) I know this is long but please hear me out. The school has amazing test scores. My tenth grade english teacher (Mr. Moore) prepared us so well for the porficiencies that almost no one failed. I got a score of 493/500, and English is one of my weakest subjects. Overall the school is great academically. The ONLY downfall is that the school does not provide sports or performing arts. This is just how magnet schools in CCSD are. This problem is easily fixed, though. Students can join sports teams from their home school. Anyways, the school is pretty great!

I recently graduated from Southwest CTA and I have to say I was more than prepared to transition into a university. I was really happy to know that I was ahead of the game on a lot of things that have to do with my major as well as public speaking and professionalism. The school has amazing staff and resources. I also really liked the fact that there is different majors that people can participate in. Overall I am extremely happy to say that I made the right choice coming to Southwest CTA.

I'm an alum. I started as a freshman the first year the school opened in 2009, and I graduated with the class of 2013. I would hear all about my friends at other public high schools, and how they just wanted to get done with it. Southwest made me involved though, "getting done with it" wasn't an option. Now, as a freshman at UNLV, I'm incredibly thankful for what SWCTA did for me. Like one of the parents commented, staff sometimes leave. I had two teachers leave due to their pregnancies. That can happen at any school. Some staff could've been better, yes, but that's anywhere. Nowhere is perfect. But Southwest Career and Technical Academy really had some of the most amazing staff. I had so many opportunities attending high school there, I wish I would've taken full advantage of all the opportunities. The administration is obsessed with the stars and stats, but they make sure their students represent the school properly. I'm not a nerd by any means, but southwest was a home to me. I had my web design and broadcast family there. Parents need not enroll their students unless their student actually wants to participate in the best education possible.

My daughter in in 9th grade. She loves the school. Class rooms are clean and safe. Most teachers are helpful and accessible. The Principal plans to expand the usage of the campus to include some college-level classes in the future.
