South Western School District Reviews
The academics and the extracurricular opportunities are amazing! The music department is one of the best in the county, and the sports teams are awesome! Safety is also a main concern of the administration, so multiple security guards are stationed on campus. It feels good to know that I can go to a place to learn and not have to worry about my safety.
South Western is an incredible school district, where students are encouraged to learn both in and out of the classroom by motivated, accepting teachers and staff. While the best parts of SWSD lie within the high level education and the dedication of the teachers, there are many reasons that South West spreads positivity. SWSD is a community, not merely a school district. The teachers and students grow together as a family, supporting one another to facilitate only educational growth, but a personal growth during one's time. Outside programs like sports, clubs and the incredible arts programs encourage students to learn in their own right, following unique passions. Their weakness are in diversity, though this isnt the doing of the school but the town . SW attempts to compensate for this weakness, always promoting diversity and acceptance for students and staff, no matter one's background. Overall, attending SWSD is a life changing experience
My experience at South Western has been awesome. From the friends I have made throughout my years to the teachers and coaches I have made special bonds with to the opportunities I have had the chance to make. South Western is a place that’s special, from the pep rallies, to mini thon and the weeks leading up to it to spirit weeks, it’s just overall a great school. Once a mustang always a mustang!
