    "I play two sports and the parents always support me whenever my parents are not able to in every aspect"

    "My favorite experiences were football games. They were the most exciting and involved events. Senior events were pretty good as well and the overall moral of the school was nice. It is an experience that I do not regret. If I had to do it all over again I would choose SWD because it's like home. Although it gets a little crazy sometimes and it's not perfect by any means. I wouldn't be the same person without the friends I've made, the experiences I had, and the things that I did at SWD."

    "My nursing instructors are always on time, and always knowledgeable about the questions I have."

    "At the school either a teacher is really dedicated and very knowledgeable and helps the students out a lot, or they can be a bit of the opposite. But overall all the teachers want to teach, they try to teach the students as best they can. I've never met a completely lazy, non-caring teacher. In my opinion, ultimately the teachers are okay. There are some outstanding ones that I've had the honor of knowing."

    "The teachers at Southwest Dekalb defiantly do not fail to challenge students, as they have diverse lessons plans that involve critical thinking. However, when it comes to the workload or a opinion about the lesson plan by the student, teachers act fairly one-sided. What they say goes, even if the load of work seems a bit too exhausting, and changes in the work recommended by students most likely fail, even if it is reasonable."
