Did you know that the first graduating class moved from their Euclid school mid-year and those seniors received their diplomas from Euclid Junior-Senior High School? 

The next year the graduates also were graduates of Euclid High School.  The name change came after the class of 1964 and Southwestern remained a junior-senior high school to 1969 when integration merged the high school with DeLand High School.

The next major change came with integration in 1969.  From 1969 to 1988 Southwestern was for 7th graders only.
