Southwest High School Mission Statement


Southwest High School develops young people to become principled, open-minded, caring members of society.  Recognizing that young people will inherit a society that is global in nature, we develop international mindedness in students and help them to appreciate the common elements of humanity that transcend national, racial, ethnic, religious, and political boundaries. 


Southwest High School promotes learning through inquiry, positive risk-taking and critical thinking.  Students learn to be reflective and intentional in their thoughts and actions as well as to effectively communicate their knowledge and ideas.


Understanding that a well-rounded education is more than academic, Southwest High School strives to develop the whole person, nurturing balanced growth in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual spheres.
