The grade 11 Exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

    I have been very pleased with the education my son has received at Southwest Preparatory School NE Campus. My son was close to dropping out of school until his counselor sugessted SWP. My son's attitude on school has changed. Now he has graduated and has started College. Two years ago we thought we had a dropout on our hands. Thanks again Southwest Preparatory School.

    It is a great school. Especially if your child plans or considers graduating early. The classes are small. The teachers are great. You work at your own pace and I think that it works. If you really push yourself.
