Sarah Gustin


This year’s motto is “We are Wildcats!”  Our motto embodies our school community as a whole, as Southwestern is made up of a diverse group of individuals from a variety of backgrounds who strive for excellence TOGETHER.  Southwestern is a school that is deeply rooted in tradition, yet we are always looking to the horizon as we prepare for the future. We are ALL committed to creating and maintaining an environment that is conducive to student learning, and one that empowers our students, our staff, our parents, and our community.   It is only through a strong, shared commitment between parents, students, teachers, support staff, and administrators that our students can flourish and receive the quality education that is necessary for success in today’s society. Together, we will create an environment that will allow our students to be nurtured, to grow, and to reach high levels of academic success.  Together, we will foster a building culture that celebrates the hard work of our staff members and our students while emphasizing the importance of self-care and mindfulness. Together, WE ARE WILDCATS!
