High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Southwest High School is a public high school in the Linden Hills, neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Principal of the school is Dr. William Smith. Southwest High School was established in 1940. It is notable for being ranked at 257 of the 1,000 best high schools in America, according to the Newsweek list of best high schools in America in 2006. The school is a member of the IB, International Baccalaureate Organization and is ranked among the top 100 IB schools in both North America and the world. The school mascot is the Laker and the official colors are purple and white.
The first graduating class, of about 183 students, was in 1942. In 1956, Southwest became a six year high school, grades 7 to 12, with an enrollment of 1400. In 1968, the school was divided into senior and junior high schools with a total enrollment of 2114, the highest ever.
Currently Southwest offers most students a choice between two small learning communities, arts and humanities and the International Baccalaureate program, as they work to achieve a diploma. The Southwest sports programs have suffered in recent years due to the loss of students with obvious talent when they go to other area private or suburban high schools.

Southwest High School is highly academic and offers not only several Advanced Placement courses, but a wide variety of athletic and extra curricular opportunities for all students.
