Southwest Junior High Updates

“Unity is Strength; Together We Are Better”

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Dear Parents and Students,


We are excited about the upcoming school year. We are committed to working together to ensure your child’s success. Your child is in for a one-of-a-kind experience from middle school to junior high to high school. From extracurricular activities, ENCORE, and Advanced classes, our schools have a tradition of excellence established by great faculty, staff, students, and parents. We look forward to working with you to continue our legacy of success.


SWJH has a strong reputation of academic and extracurricular excellence. SWJH students perform at the highest levels in state assessments, in athletics, and within the fine arts. This excellence begins with a faculty that is committed to the achievement of all students. Furthermore, SWJH students hold themselves to high standards. The goal at SWJH is clear: Help each student to reach his/her full potential and promise.


We look forward to connecting with our students and families. Please reach out to us with any questions, concerns or celebrations!

2021-2022 NEW Cell Phone Policy

STUDENT CELL PHONE POLICY: CELL PHONES, MP3, GAME SYSTEMS, CHROMEBOOKS, and COMPUTERS: The focus at SWJH is academics, and we recognize that technology can support learning. However, there are times that electronic devices can be a distraction in the classroom.

Our policy is that cell phones and electronic devices should not be used in halls or during class times.

  • Talking on the phone, playing games, texting, listening to music, and using social media is not allowed during school hours (aside from lunch, before and after school).

  • Technology used inappropriately at school will be held in the office and may only be picked up by parents or guardians.

    • Repeat offenses will result in additional sanctions, including ISS, OSS, and loss of students' privilege to carry a phone during school hours.
