    Southwest Elementary is a safe, caring environment where all students are taught based on their individual needs.  Small class sizes allow teachers to work with small groups, and one on one, to teach math, reading, science, and social studies.

    Students are solving real-world problems, creating poetry, researching people and events, using technology to communicate and learn, teaching their peers, reading all types of books, articles, and historical documents, and having fun doing it!
