Southwest Local School District Reviews

Overall, Southwest Local has a very decent variety of classes, and teachers/administrators there do a good job of preparing kids for college and/or the work force. They also do a great job of placing younger kids in more advanced classes based on their strengths and offering honors programs and AP classes to those who want them. The facilities could definitely be improved on, as the building is old and (especially the junior high) doesn’t have nearly enough room or even air conditioning. The sports could also be improved on, as the school has small playing areas or worn out feilds, and another thing to note is that there is no bus service for junior high or highschool students. Because of this many are forced to walk. Inside the classroom is definitely where this school thrives.

The best thing about Southwest Local School District was definitely the teachers and their willingness to not only help out their students when they were struggling, but to get to know their students on a personal basis. When teachers do this, it makes the student feel as though they can communicate with their teacher when they need help with something, or even joke around. Some teachers are definitely better than others, however, while some leave you wondering why they became a teacher in the first place. As much as one can enjoy their high school experience, I can confidentiality say that the education I got did not prepare me for college, and the curriculum could be improved.
Schools in Southwest Local School District are very safe and have mostly nice and helpful teachers. Personally, I think it is an average district. I have personally never witnessed bullying or been bullied. Also, the playgrounds are nice.
There is nothing extraordinary besides some teachers. The technology and facilities are outdated. There is also little to no diversity. The majority of students are white and from rural Ohio.
