I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Southwest Guilford High School. The facilities, staff, and ample amount of extracurricular activities created a prosperous and diverse environment for students. I believe that all teachers were dedicated to student success and were involved outside of the classroom. However, I think that advisors and counselors could have done a better job at preparing us for college and that transition. Overall, I created lots of positive memories in high school through my club and sports experiences and academic success.

Incredibly diverse and open to all opportunities students and staff provide for everyone! Sports are in a State Championship level and everyone is absolutely involved in getting ready for life after high school with either a career or college. Definitely worth my 4 years
I love the school opportunities that are available for all students. They have a wide range of clubs such as Mu Alpha Theta, Dance, HOSA, DECA, and many more. The school is strict on things such as phones and school code but regardless, the school has fewer and controlled fights and drug-related situations. Here, we can take classes that focus on ower interests like, for me, medical. I am able to graduate high school with a CNA and be able to work and study in the medical fields.
