Greetings Silver Hawks

My name is Mike Gillotti and I am honored to serve as the new Principal of Lincoln Southwest High School. In a short period of time, Southwest has established itself as school rich with traditions and achievements. I am excited to carry those traditions forward while helping our students continue to excel in the classroom, in their activities and as members of the community.

The past two months have provided me with many opportunities to meet with staff, students and other members of the Southwest community. I am humbled to be surrounded by such caring people and such an outstanding staff. These encounters have provided me with an opportunity to hear your passion for Southwest as an institution of higher learning with high expectations for who we are as Silver Hawks. There is a strong sense of family embedded in the culture here and it is a privilege to be a part of it. We will continue to welcome everyone who comes through our doors as Silver Hawks and work to provide all students with a positive, yet challenging, high school experience.

No institution is more important to a community than the school that serves it. It is with this in mind that we embrace our role as educators who approach every day with the mindset that we will challenge our students and ourselves to be better today than we were yesterday. Our mission remains, “Lincoln Southwest High School will inspire an academic, creative, and flexible learning environment.  Students, faculty, staff, and patrons will be challenged as a COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS to reach their maximum potential in a safe, caring, multicultural, and technological environment.

We will demonstrate our commitment to this mission every day as we prepare our students to go out and make our community, and the rest of the world, Silver Hawk strong.

Thank you for such a warm Silver Hawk welcome.

Mike Gillotti, Principal
