My daughter is in Kindergarten and was reading 2 weeks into school without any previous reading experience.

I have had children attend Southwest and another elementary school in Greenwood that is usually looked upon more favorably for it has children from more affluent neighborhoods attending it. Our experience was better at Southwest. The focus is on the children and their education more than fundraisers,. status, and expensive field trips that do not have much academic value. The staff is very caring and you can tell there is strong leadership and structure. All children and all families are treated the same by staff and PTO members. At the other school, it felt like you had to be part of a popular family or a stay-at-home mom to be in with the PTO.Also, I was very impressed with the inclusive nature. At school functions, you always saw typically-developed children interacting with - on their own! - the special needs students. If I were to recommend a school to someone moving into Greenwood's district, I would recommend Southwest.
