Family Connection

SWS High School Students and Parents:   Get Connected!

The SWS High School utilizes Family Connection from Naviance, a comprehensive Web-based service designed especially for students and parents.  Students linked to Family Connection have access to a wide variety of resources and services related to interest and career exploration and post-high school planning. Our high school counselors also use Family Connection to communicate with students and parents and to track and analyze data about individual college and career plans.  All high school students and at least one parent per household are required to register with this service.
