Southwestern Middle/Senior High School Reviews

One of the perks of attending Southwestern is the small community. It is a friendly, family oriented school that feels secure. The small number of students allows us to pretty much do any sport or extracurricular the school is able to offer. However, the small size also means it is difficult for the school to offer as much as larger schools and though everyone knows everyone else, it is hard to break into established cliques. The teachers are very dedicated and attentive to their students. They respond quickly to questions or emails and are encouraging to anyone who needs it. I have enjoyed my time at Southwestern, but I am looking forward to seeing more of the world after high school.

It's an average school. You have the opportunity to attend Ivy Tech classes offsite to earn college credit. There are dual and ap classes, too. The school doesn't have a lot of money and could use a good bit of updating, such as painting and new desks. Students do have their own computers and technology is used a good bit.
Southwestern is a small school. With that, there are advantages and disadvantages. We don't have a lot of dual credit opportunity, and I wish that our academics were focused on as much as Madison Consolidated Schools'. With that being said, MOST of the staff are friendly and there to help you. There's minimal bullying in the high school, but seems to be more in the middle school, and it's not dealt with all the time. The principals and superintendent are SUPER friendly and welcoming.
