I didn't like going to this school. We're stuck with the same assistant principal and counselor for all three years, and it seemed like my year's didn't care about us at all. The homework was overwhelming, and once, a teacher took 20% off my grade in a class discussion because I "didn't talk loud enough".

Overall we made it and were just as disappointed as we expected to be.

School needs major improvements. A complete change in culture and approach. Better communication with parents

This school was brought to me by a good school I used to go to, which was rivergate, so I was expecting this school was gonna be the same but surprisingly, I was wrong. It's probably the worst school I've ever went to! It's like there's so many rules. It feels like north korea! The teachers are annoying and dumb and the children are mean. I was expecting the 8th and 7th graders to be well behaved but no. They're not. They're crazy and act like elementary schoolers. They also start yell alot and start fights. The bus driver doesn't do anything about it. This is my first year and this is what I think about southwest middle school, THE WORST SCHOOL EVER.

I went here for all three years of middle school. They were the worst years of my life, but that's probably just middle school in general. Your child will survive if you send them here, I am now at an early college taking college classes in my sophomore year, so it's not going to ruin your life. If you have a bad experience, it's probably because of the students, although some of the teachers are *insert inappropriate word here*. But yeah if you send your kid here they won't die. There are a lot of good teachers there, and I made some pretty good friends. I hope this was helpful since I actually went there.
