The only complaint I have about southwest middle is the size. CMS needs a new middle schoo,l because Southwest is over crowed. However, families with children that go to this school should take responsibility and participate at the school. If you want to make the school better parents need to step up. ...  Read more

I just came to this school from park road montessori. This is my first year although i am starting in 7th grade. This school sucks! The teachers barely even care if you missed anything. They don't explain projects well at all. The organization at this school is the worst because there is none. On picture ...  Read more

Horrifying. Unless your child is in the "high" Honors classes. Check, bc there are two levels of Honors classes. These are quietly referred to as "high honors" and "low honors". Low honors is just the old Standard Plus kids, those who scored 3's on EOGs. I spent 2 days going to school with my son who ...  Read more

Teachers do very little to try and stop it. They have given up just as much as the students. Some of the students ...  Read more

Fights break out everyday in a competition to see who is the best, graffiti on the walls ...  Read more

SWMS like many other CMS schools are failing our kids as it relates to academics. The school is over-populated; some of the teachers lack dedication and enthusiasm that's due in part to the teacher:student ratio, and also due to the lack of knowledge and skills. My daughter attended SWMS for the entire ...  Read more

SWMS is a good Middle School. The population is very versatile. There are great teachers there who work hard to try to educate the Middle School child. I have had different kids in all 3 grades and have been pleased with what they are doing in school. I hope the new administration will notice and appreciate ...  Read more

That's true, there were fights everyday last school year. Staff morale was really low. A few teachers were really dedicated, others not. The ones who were, have my complete respect. Children were dispersed to other classes in at least 1 class everyday, usually more, allowing for weak continuity ...  Read more
