Southwest Elementary School sits at the corner of 99th Street and Central Park Avenue. Denise Thomas serves as the…More principal and encourages students to "Do your Bulldog Best" (a motto modeled after the School's mascot) and to "be respectable, be responsible and be safe."
Students at Southwest are challenged with a thorough curriculum that includes special-education classes for grades Kindergarten through three. Southwest Elementary School won the 2009 Academic Excellence Award. If students choose to pick up extracurricular activities, they may participate in any of the NSNS sports, student council or the Green Team environmental group.
Southwest parents are encouraged to stay active with the sports, field trips and special performances that the students put on for the community.
