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.
