If you want to further your education, this is a good school to consider. Their principal is very passionate about seeing her students and school succeed. From year 9 to year 12, all students have the opportunity to take classes at the Community College of Denver, and earn their associate's degree by the time they graduate!

Southwest Early College opened many doors for me. From earning college credits to emotional support. My teachers have been with me all four years and their support is always there. However, I would have liked more highschool spirit. Prom, homecoming, spirit week certain things that make highschool and memorable place.
Coming to south west ealry college it been a great experience. Following my brother step and looking forward to graduate. I have passed all my class thanks to my friends, teachers, and parents. But my most fun year is senior year. And this is because I’m attending to a technical college while still going to southwest early college
