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 High School Performing Arts Council (SW PAC) is a committed group of parent advocates who partner with the SWHS 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.
