This school is great. The teachers there help every student out when they need help.

In my opinion southwest high school is not a good school your children should attend . There is always rats running around in classrooms, the lunch Is disgusting , most of the food for breakfast and lunch is rotten. The fruit is rotten and the milk nd juice is really expired. During lunch really over expired snacks are sold. I mainly don't appreciate the teachers getting upset at us students for supposedly wearing "inappropriate clothes" that are appropriate. I also don't like that afterschool when it's time to go home, students who have to ride buses either wait in the blistering heat or during winter have to wait a long time in the freezing cold. I really hate this school don't let your children attend it .

I liked it overall. Great fine arts dept. as well as a wide variety in clubs, sports, and even career classes like culinary arts, auto collision, wood shop, FFA, cosmetology..list went on :) Even though there's a few bad apples, there's plenty to keep us out of trouble. The more involved u get in school spirit the better the experience. Can't wait for my son to go here

Ms. Fey is the best principal in Bexar County. She was born for this job. She absolutely loves her students and wants them to succeed. She expects my daughter to work and act like a young adult......and guess what, my daughter is finally doing it. Ms. Fey has changed the whole atmosphere of this school.

This is a good school that should be setting its sights a lot higher. The administration is more concerned with teaching for the TASK test than they are in preparing my kids for college and universities. If the schools would concentrate on quality education instead of worring about the TASK, the test scores will come up. We have been down grading our curiculums so that students won't fail and what we need to be doing is upgrading the curiculum so that they will be prepared for higher education.

Southwest High School is fortunate to have one of the most caring principal when it comes to students. She has a proven success record of demanding excellence in teaching, and that is just what all students should get; no mediocrity is going to work for her; she expects for everyone to get the job done right, efficiently, and effectively and she is a strong supporter of teachers and their efforts; teachers will find that if they do their job, plan effectively, and provide for students' individual needs, that she is a true supporter, friend, and mentor. Go Dragons.

Southwest is a very family-oriented high school, almost to a fault. I attended Southwest, graduating in 1975,and have a child attending there. I am worried that the academics may not be as helpful for college prep,as they should be. The school board and administrators dont seem to be very demanding of the coaching staff at any grade level. There does not seem to be a demand for excellence placed on the students and faculty. It is a very friendly school. WMy overall impression is that it is a good school that should be better.

It seems the new principal is more concerned with policies and administration, than about what is best for the students. Counseling is also very overloaded, not enough time for students unless they are a problem to staff.
