Southwest Middle School Reviews

This is a school that took care of me while attending and continues to do so while I am enrolled in high school. They accept cultural differences being given their location, and adapt to the children's needs. It was a big transition coming o my high school from Southwest, because no one is accepting. I treasure the relationships with the teachers and administration I have built throughout my middle school years.

I am a current member of southwest I love the school and most of the teacher. The only thing I don't like is the dress code.
