One think I love about my school are the venders we have everything during lunch. Another thing we have so many activities you can join and each one is like being apart of another family. My school also is always interested in new ideas on anything. Southwood always has something going on. Every year we have a concert in the courtyard performed by the band, food served from the culinary arts students and hosted by the choir. The military is comes to our school and talks to students about every other week. Teachers have their old students who are in college come and talk in there classes. Our history club and art club is always taking trips visiting museums and more. Southwood is full of different kids, different experiences, multiple choices and so much more.

My high school experience with Southwood was slightly shorter than most students saying I only had 3 years with the school but I have had an wonderful experience with the staff, teachers and students. Even with our new principal I still have been able to be myself and experience myself freely through my clothing and in my work. The school follows the Caddo rule book to the extreme but is able to keep an amazing relationship with the students. I truly feel loved, cared for and welcomed at Southwood. I have a mutual respect with the teacher and staff that was established with out words. I would recommend the school to anyone and everyone.
Coming from middle school I never expected Southwood to be such a good school. Throughout the entire time I was attending Southwood, the teachers were nice and the principal was really concerned with student's academic performances. Southwood has an average of after school activities for students and because education is taken so seriously at Southwood students have to have good grades in order to be involved with the activities. At Southwood students are recognized for their effort and hard work. Southwood is such a good school!
