Thank You!

I would like to extend a big thank you to our ACT Skills Sessions Leaders! Our teachers went above and beyond preparing for and conducting these sessions! The extra time spent planning and preparing for this day is much appreciated. Truly a great group of teachers!

And another big thank you to the junior class! Our 11th grade students went over to SCC on Friday, December 4th and had prep sessions 3 and 4 sections of the ACT (English, Math, Reading, Science). Our students were appreciative of the chance to focus on these strategies and conducted themselves in a mature and respectful manner. THANK YOU CLASS OF 2017!

Lastly, thanks to our office staff, administrators, Gear Up, substitues, and custodial staff for all of your help as well! It takes everyone working together for the successful day that we had.

Peer Observations--Teachers in their Summative Year

The purpose of Peer Observation is for teachers to receive feedback from a peer to help improve their practice. The Peer Observation is only shared between the teacher and their peer, and is an opportunity for teachers to engage in collegial conversations concerning pedagogical practice. If you are a teacher in your summative year, your Peer Observer has contacted you to schedule an observation. If you are unsure whether or not you are in your summative year, see your evaluating principal.

Success With Higher Standards

Southwestern High School will strive to graduate every student college/career ready and prepared for the 21st century.
