Welcome to Southwood! We are thrilled that you are interested in joining our community.

Choosing the right school can be hard. With multiple preschool and elementary school options in our area, as a parent, it can be a challenge to know which is best for your child and your family. MSD of Wabash County truly wants to help parents in this process.

Below we have outlined steps that we see as beneficial in the school decision process.

If you already know that Southwood is right for you - fantastic! Skip down to the final step and let's help you enroll.

Step 2: Connect

Let the school know you are interested. We would be happy to answer your questions or tell you more about our schools. You can even let us know if you prefer a phone call, email, or text.

It also may be helpful to connect with current or past Southwood parents. Please let us know if we can help connect to you with parents who would be happy to tell you about their experience.

Step 3: Tour

Some decisions just need to be experienced in person. A school representative would be happy to give you a tour of the school, introduce you to faculty and staff. Whatever you need to help you make this decision we can most likely accommodate!

To arrange a tour, please complete the Enrollment Interest form above and indicate that you are interested in a tour.
