Principal’s Message

The faculty and staff of Southwest Miami High School are devoted to providing students a quality education in a safe nurturing learning environment. Our State certified teachers are trained professionals who strive to ensure each student achieves to their individual potential. Collectively, we share a common vision focusing on infusing best practices to prepare all students to compete globally in post secondary educational programs and ultimately enter the work force with the skills needed to be highly productive members of society.

We offer students a variety of educational opportunities ranging from advanced academics to career and technical programs. The advanced academics program offerings include dual enrollment courses as well as advanced placement classes which challenge students while preparing them to perform well at the college level. Among the varied diploma options available, Southwest Miami High School also offers the Capstone program specifically designed for college bound students.

Our instructional programs are complimented by a host of clubs, sports and activities that enrich the high school experience. The athletics program at Southwest includes a host of sports from football to golf and bowling. The multiple service clubs as well as special interest clubs keep students engaged in productive activities throughout the year.

Southwest is a traditional high school consistently ranked among the “Best High Schools”  in the nation according a published report in US News. We take great pride in our school and firmly believe that parents are our strongest partners in the education of each of our students. I invite you to join the Southwest Miami High School community in this very important endeavor.
