The PTSA board is seeking members to build depth and maintain a strong presence of support at Southwest in 2014-15.

This summer, we are looking for
volunteers to help at new-family/freshman events and to fill our annual volunteer schedule.


  • Choose to dedicate yourself to the same event each year or mix it up.
  • No experience necessary, and everyone is welcome, from incoming to alumni.
  • We all do our part to keep our school on top!
  • Contact to express your interest and join in the fun.

The Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) at Southwest High School invites you to join us in our mission to:

  • Promote the well-being of Southwest students at school, at home, and in the community.
  • Bring together parents, teachers, and staff to support students and achieve excellence in education.
  • Successfully advocate to serve the best interest of Southwest and all MPS students.
  • Share our strengths to promote Southwest’s community value and attract partnerships and support.
