Principal’s Message

Eagle Family,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to Southwest Miami High School. I am truly proud about last year’s accomplishments and eager to begin the new school year.

I certainly look forward to a year filled with positive energy and positive results. The task is upon all of us to unite and assist Southwest Miami in working towards becoming an “A” school again. It is evident that the B our school earned this year was based on teamwork, dedication, and a student-centered focus. Our graduation rate for our seniors was 98% this year- the highest in Eagle history. We have also achieved a GOLD Designation in STEAM!

This year promises to be an exciting school year with an eight-period day, new programs and more rigorous course offerings. We take pride in our school and its accomplishments and must continually work for excellence and growth in all areas of our school program. It is our goal to be recognized as a school of excellence through our achievements in academics, certifications, dual enrollment, athletics, and activities. We continue to streamline our coursework into academies across the curriculum and have developed plans to assist our students in a holistic manner.

I look forward to an extremely productive and exciting school year!
