LSW Students: Please click on the following link to complete a survey about LSW. We would very much like to have your input as we strive to be a better school for all students. We would like to hear each of your voices!
Thank you for visiting the Lincoln Southwest High School website. We are very proud of our school. We have begun Year #11—Starting a New Decade of Success! We have an incredible staff at SW. In addition, our students are among the finest in the country. When you add that our parents and surrounding community give us unparalleled support, we have all of the ingredients for a successful Learning Community. We are working diligently to become a “Community of Learners” because we endeavor to ensure that everyone in our community works to reach their individual potential. We ask the adults to model the habits of successful people so that our students will realize that we never ask them to do anything that we are not willing or able to do. LSW is an exciting place to be! If you are a prospective student or staff member, please take some time to get to know us better by navigating our website. We are confident that you will learn a lot about us.
This year we are focused on taking our students to the next level of performance. That means we are going to focus on student behavior, student work habits, our NeSA State Testing, and our Anti-Bullying Campaign. Let me tell you about each of these priorities:
Student Behavior: We are asking students to focus on four areas:
Student Work Habits: We believe that students should complete their homework each night. In addition, they should also be studying for each class. Finishing the work is an expectation. Studying the material is a necessity!
NeSA Testing: Our students consistently under perform on NeSA Tests. We are going to ask them to make their best effort so that we can evaluate our curriculum, our instruction, and student learning. Our school is evaluated and compared to other schools across Lincoln and throughout Nebraska!
Anti-Bullying Campaign: We have become a “No Place for Hate” school in each of the last two years. We will not tolerate or allow bullying to take place at school or during school events. We are going to teach our students how to avoid being a bully or being bullied.
Thank you for your help and support!
