Great school, the students have just become a little lazy lately. Counseling is something that needs improvement, if you’re a senior you’re on your own! Otherwise, good school.

Southwest is an excellent school! They have a very good academic services including excellent teachers and excellent learning technologies. Other than that, they also offer a lot of opportunities to get college credits while you're still in high school. In general, I would say that it's an excellent school on US!
What I liked about Southwest is the welcome feeling to ask anyone for help in the school and how everyone lends a hand when asked. Teachers,coaches,faculty,security, and even other students in school help anyone in need. The school maintains a standard for students doing good in class and having fun in school activities. Student athletes also are good in the classroom first like myself, and also in the sport they participate in. All the coaches makes it clear to all their players that they are "students first and players second". With that our school sports are all very competitive and respected to other schools.
