District, business leaders get an update on Little Rock’s new Southwest High School


LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- On Friday, Little Rock School District officials took a look at the progress being made at the district’s new Southwest High School. 

Officials and the Southwest Business Alliance took a tour of the new classrooms. 

While it’s a state-of-the-art academic facility, the hope is that it will be a place where students can train for a career. 

The district’s deputy superintendent, Marvin Burton is excited to Principal Burton next fall. 

“I look at it as a piece that is a dream deferred,” says Burton. “It’s allowed this part of the city to have a major facility that is really a beacon of light for the students in this particular area.”

Architects expect the new school will open in August 2020.
