40 Parent Reviews for Southwest Middle School

If you read the reviews you can see that there has been a complete shift of attitude toward the school from when the new principal arrived after Mr. Brown was moved to another school. The new administration has ruined the school. Teachers are quitting, even deans and assistant principals have quit. Discipline ...  Read more

We moved to Dr Phillips with the expressed purpose of sending our children to A rated schoolS. We decided that the high prices area would be worth it to have our children in a great school district. This is not the case. Southwest buses in kids from other out of district areas for whatever reason and ...  Read more

My son hated this school! He was bullied and they did nothing. His Audio Visual class instructor was mean and verbally put down the students in front of others. She did this on a regular basis. She even put them down in front of others after they had graduated and left to go to another school. Worst ...  Read more

My son has not had a certified math teacher for most of this year. Last year, he was bullied and my emails were ignored. It is not place of safety or higher learning.

School has gone downhill since Mr. Brown left. He had a talent and that was 'connecting with the students.' They respected him. The administration in place struggles getting teachers and I can't say it's been a good experience. Many challenges need to be overcome at this school for me to recommend ...  Read more

This was the worst school my son has ever attended. From the atmosphere to the staff, we experienced many problems. My son has always been a good conduct, honor roll student. I would not recommend this school for anyone. I am a counselor and have seen many children here suffer great emotional problems, ...  Read more

As a parent who has had two daughters already go through Southwest and now have our third child there, you should think refully about your expectations for this school. Now that they are shipping kids in from less desireable areas of Orlando, the quality of experience is much worse. More fighjting, more ...  Read more
