Dear Parents and Guardians,
    It is with great PRIDE and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Southwest Magnet High School and Law Academy.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition!  I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than seventeen years.  I have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from 5th grade through and including college.  My most recent administrative experience has been here at Southwest where I served as Assistant Principal.  I am excited and eager to continue showcasing my skills as an educational leader to Southwest as the Principal and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by SWHS by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on scholarship, citizenship, and leadership and provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement towards Enrollment, Enlistment, or Employment.

   All of us at Southwest Magnet High School and Law Academy are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever.  This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. 

   I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Southwest meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Best Regards,

Mr. A. Bernard Young
