'School of Excellence' for sure! My son is in all AP/advanced courses. His teaching team ('The Midnight Riders')have made learning very fun while preparing him for college and getting him accustomed to a rigorous course load. He is very active in school with the Latin High IQ Team, History Bowl, Mentor ...  Read more

This is a great school. My daughter has/had some of the beat math teachers she will ever meet. I Highly recommend this school if your child is a hard-working child! We love Southwest!
