Welcome to Stallion Country! During this time of year I know a lot of you may have mixed feelings about your transition into high school. Trust me when I say,
“You will be okay.”

The student dress code applies to all students at ALL school functions. The basic responsibility for the appearance of the students at Southwest High School rests with the parents and students themselves. Parents have the obligation, and within certain prescribed bounds, the right to determine the dress for their child. A student's appearance must not disrupt the teaching-learning process.
Please refer to Southwest High School Student Handbook , which can be found at http://southwest.nc.och.schoolinsites.com

WELCOME CLASS of 2020!
Prep and Plan: This summer take some time to think about what it is you would like to pursue once you have graduated high school. I know what you may be thinking, “Oh, that’s 4 years from now! I have time.” Post-secondary planning takes some time and thought, so get started now! Your senior year will be here before you know it. A good sight to help you with this process is www.CFNC.org
This webpage will give you an abundance of information concerning academic preparation for the future.
The CFNC (College Foundation of North Carolina) will give you the ability to explore options such as, college and careers. This site also provides tips as to how to prepare for your post-secondary goals.
Read, Read, Read….. Books, newspapers, magazines etc. Over the summer months you tend to “lose” a lot of what you worked so hard to learn. So read, practice a few math problems. Go online and read about the Roman Empire or the formation of Volcanoes. Hint, hint ….You’ll need to know this. Utilize the school website http://southwest.nc.och.schoolinsites.com to access links through Student Services to enhance your educational needs.
