As a former graduate of Southwestern I look back and am thankful for the education I received from here. The teachers are dedicated and take the extra mile to help their students academically. The school was safe and well maintained. Now they have started beautiful renovations to the gym, fitness room, auditorium, & much more. In my experience there wasn’t a large graduating class, and I felt very close with my fellow classmates. The community is strong in the area, and give a lot of support to the school. One thing I’d like to see some more of is clubs/after school activities. I think there was also a lack of culture awareness when I was attending. This was 5 + years ago so I do not know if things have changed in that area. Overall SW is an amazing school in an amazing district. Lakewood are of New York was a beautiful, and safe place to grow up in.

I love Southwestern Central School. They have Excellent academic standards. It is a small community, and students and parents get very involved. Everyone knows each other and supports each other. Friday night football games are fun, and the Pep band is fantastic!
So many different types, there's something for everyone! Every activity is very prosperous and many have won national, county, or state awards. There are many students who put forth much effort to break new records. The whole school, including staff rallies behind students when it comes to competitive events.
