The rating for this school is wrong. The graduation rate for this school has went down every year. Southwind high school has somevofvthe lowest act scores in the state of tennessee. The teachers don't get alone and there are police at the school at least twice a semester .
This school was the worst I have ever dealt with. I have 3 children and we are a military family so I have seen different schools. The Principal is really never there. The Asst Principal is rude and cursed me out to the point that I cried because I didn't know how to handle any of our children being there. I moved...really quick. My son now goes to Bolton High and that has been awesome. I pray for the kids at Southwind daily and feel sorry for them. The ratings should show the leadership value. I did try to complain to the school board but never had a answer back.
The school started out great. Ms. Vaughan is a nice person, however, her leadership is not the best. The counselors are not very good at keeping up with the students graduation credits or counseling them on what is needed. Very poor lack of communication!!!!!!
This a wonderful school. The Principal and the teachers work very hard to make sure that their students and our children excel to the highest level. Ms. Patterson is a principal that believes in zero tolerance but she also has compassion. Ms. Patterson is a principal that all principals need to learn from. My son has received student of the month twice and had nothing but A's and B' the whole school year. Thank you Southwind High School Principal and Faculty for a job done well done. A. Bates
