Sweetwater ISD has a STRONG academic and extracurricular program for our students.

STRONG can give you a valuable Dual Credit Program and a great start towards a college degree.

  • Sweetwater ISD offers much more in its college dual credit program than many other schools - with partnerships with Angelo State University, Texas State Technical College, and Western Texas College.

  • Sweetwater ISD offers free tuition through college partnerships and a local trust.

  • Sweetwater ISD offers live, face to face, instruction by certified college professors, not online or through distance learning like many other districts.

  • Sweetwater ISD students can earn 39 college hours through dual credit courses that will transfer through the state common numbering system. When entering college with an Associate Degree obtained in high school like some other schools offer, many hours are not accepted or counted towards a college degree program, thus being counted only as electives those students.

Here's to the Red and the White, We're Mustangs - we've come to fight. Give a cheer - show your might, For the victory's in sight, And the battle cry will be Fight Fight Fight! Here's to the best in the land, And right to the end we'll stand, For the   M-U-S-T-A-N-G-S Fight Fight Fight!


Procedures for High School Visitors
Parents and all visitors that visit Sweetwater High School will need to first stop at the Main Office, present a valid Texas ID card (such as a driver license) and obtain a visitor’s pass. The pass must be worn at all times while you are visiting our school. If you wish to talk with your child’s teacher, please make an appointment at least 24 hours before you would like to meet. Teachers cannot interrupt instructional time to talk with parents. However, we would like to encourage parents to take the time to meet with their child's teacher.  Recent Sweetwater High School graduates may not visit the campus to each lunch and visit with currently enrolled students.

Sweetwater High School utilizes V-Soft Visitor Security Software. V-Soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, providing a safer more monitored environment. When you obtain a visitor's pass or come into the office to pick-up your child from school, your Texas ID is scanned into this system. This system screens visitors and has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of our school. 

Thank you for your continued support as we work together to ensure that every child receives a safe, secure and orderly learning community!!!
