We invite parents to be actively involved in their child’s education. We believe that fostering connections with family and community supports each student’s development and learning.
Southwest Leadership Academy promotes parent involvement in many ways. First, we created a Parent Advisory Council, which is a school advisory board consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal. The Council meets monthly to discuss parent concerns, school initiatives and community needs.
In addition, our school encourages family involvement by asking all parents to participate in a school orientation, and providing free-of-charge counseling supports that help parents and their children develop communication skills, self-confidence, and problem-solving skills that foster healthy relationships at home.
Teachers meet with families every quarter to discuss academic performance, classroom behavior, and the student’s long-term goals.
Community service and outreach are also important for all students, and Southwest Leadership Academy promotes community engagement. During their senior year, students will develop and organize a community service project and recruit volunteers for implementation of the project.
