Southwest High School Ranks #5 in the State of MN

Washington Monthly has released their high school rankings, and we are proud to share that Southwest is ranked #5 in the state of MN and one of 2368 schools in the country to be recognized.

Since its creation in 1998, the “Challenge Ranking” looks at “equity and excellence,” or the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career (reference: Washington monthly).  Southwest takes great pride in both providing open access to advanced course offerings to all students and to encouraging all students to challenge themselves.
