About Southwest

At Southwest, you will find a school that is all about caring. Once you get there, you won’t want to leave! With a compassionate community, there are so many ways that students are inspired to reach their full potential as they become lifelong learners. 
Southwest School is built on genuine caring for the wellbeing of students, staff, and families with a unified mission to be a successful and unique neighborhood school. With very tangible community support, incredible connections, and unique traditions, students are able to find encouragement and resources at every turn. Classrooms collaborate across grade levels and provide caring and calm environments for students to learn and think creatively. Student ownership in learning is important at Southwest, celebrated with Genius Hour in fourth grade where students explore a topic of their choice, do research and present their findings to the community. Our incredible teachers often stay in our school for a long time, building strong relationships with their students year after year. Together we continue to help our children strive for educational excellence!
