I absolutely loved the staff! Our teachers were very involved in our lives and continue to stay involved as we move into college. They have prepared us well and hope to see us do well. They could change the points that they are focusing on to more important things and also deal with the teachers that are causing problems instead of just ignoring the situation overall, but overall an amazing school I’m glad to have attended it.

I personally loved all of my teachers and everything my high school had to offer. I really enjoyed getting a jump start into college since I was able to take a couple of college classes in high school. It really helped me out a lot in the long run. I am a hispanic female and it felt great seeing all of the diversity that we had. I was very involved with my school seeing as I was in various clubs and sports. It was a little hard to manage everything, but the adults in charge of that were very understanding and helped in any way possible.
I love how the teachers at Southwestern Heights interact with all the students and take the time to get to know you. I also enjoy that the teachers make time to teach you something. Also if you’re behind on something everyone takes it nicely and helps you catch up and understand the problem. I enjoy that I know everyone in the school and there is no tension between anyone here. This school is a good school and I highly recommend everyone to go there.
