Home of the Eagles



On behalf of all of us at Southwest we thank you for visiting our school website and I encourage you to check back often for updates about our various school events.

The upcoming school year promises to be the best ever as our students strive to achieve both academic and extracurricular goals. Our students shined this past year in a variety of academic areas and overall attention to academic success is evident everywhere on campus from the classroom to the athletic fields. One key to this achievement is the involvement of SHS families with our web based online access to student progress. Parents and students have found the Aeries Parent/Student Portal a great resource that gives immediate access to grades and attendance issues. If you are new to Southwest High School please stop by the office for information on signing up for this resource.

Southwest High School has a number of extra curricular programs that many of our students participate in. These events are open to the community and everyone is invited to attend. Students involved in sports activities have work hard all year improving their athletic skills which we hope you will witness for yourself when you visit campus to take in one of our many sports programs calendared this coming year. Our performance groups, known for producing great shows,  promise to be better than ever with talent that exceeds what one would expect from a school production. We hope to see your family in the audience at one of our shows soon!

Southwest High School is a success because of the support we receive from our community. If you are new to Southwest or have questions about our programs, please stop by. Our doors are always open to your questions and concerns.

About us...

 At Southwest High School faculty and staff work diligently to meet the needs of all students by continually evaluating programs and curriculum while supporting the concept that there are many pathways to post graduation success. In addition to our core curriculum that supports the college bound student, we have a number of Career Technical Education courses that build foundational skills in a number of career areas. We are proud to say that a number of our CTE students have earned scholarships and secured jobs based on their experience at SHS. In addition to classes SHS offers a number of extra curricular clubs, activities, and sports programs for students. We encourage you to visit our school website to learn more about us.
