Welcome to the Southwestern Jr./Sr. High School webpage. Heading into my seventh year here at Southwestern it is exciting to reflect on how many advancements we have made in the last six years. As a 1:1 environment, our teachers are able to check for student understanding and differentiate based on individual student needs. I feel privileged to work with the staff, students, parents and other stakeholders of our school as we continue to seek out innovative ways to prepare our students for the next steps in their lives. We have purchased a set of Google Expedition kits for our teachers to use in the classroom to enhance instruction. This is an exciting time to be a Spartan!
We continue to update our Twitter account “@SWShelbySpartan” for our stakeholders to follow. This Twitter feed keeps stakeholders up to date on sporting events, school events, and other important news needed to get to the public. We are excited that over 1,100 people follow us on Twitter seeing the great things our students are doing. The high school has also entered into an agreement with IVY Tech where our students will have the possibility to graduate high school with college credits that will be transferable to most state institutions. We are also excited to announce we will be offering the following AP courses this year: Art, Biology, Calculus, English/Language Arts, Human Geography, US History, and World History, along with each grade level having an Honors English/Language Arts class.
The SWHS staff and faculty look forward to collaborating with you as we continue to take steps to provide a thorough education for our students by providing them with up to date tools to help them prepare for their post high school careers.
