Welcome to Southwest HIGH SCHOOL Performing Arts
Southwest High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota is well known for its exceptional performing arts curriculum. When a high school student chooses to become a Southwest "Laker", they're presented with a number of opportunities to dive into music, theatre, and dance.
The Southwest Performing Arts Council is a committed group of parent advocates who partner with the performing arts faculty. We organize fundraising efforts, build community relationships, and work to close the achievement gap for students. Research continually demonstrates that exposure to a performing arts curriculum aids our children's success in other areas of study, particularly with math, science and languages.
When you donate to the Southwest Performing Arts Council, you're ensuring the present day and ongoing vitality of band, choir, dance, guitar, jazz, orchestra, and theatre at Southwest High.
Our proud tradition of excellence in performing arts curriculum and programming is directly due to the generosity of parents, alumni, extended family, local businesses, and neighbors. Every dollar makes a difference. Thank you for your support!
