Note: I have never attended a full day at Southwest because I also attend a focus program. The teachers fall within the normal spectrum: I have had superb ones and ones who seemed not to care at all. I would imagine that is the same at all schools. One suggestion, take Diff courses if you want better ...  Read more

My son went here and the whole time he was unhappy. The counselors are unapproachable and unfriendly. Although there are a few decent teachers, the overall education is below par. I would recommend any other school in Lincoln besides this one. Don't send your child here!

I love this school. Very well put together. The best part is block scheldules. Kids only have 4 classes a day, 90 minutes long. It only takes them 2 terms to finish a core class, unlike the usual 4 terms to finish a core class.

I came from Lincoln Christain, and Southwest was a big change. But the teachers and staff were very helpful with me making the change. Southwest is a great school with great kids, and great teachers.
