2015-2016 SWD STAR Student and STAR Teacher Announced
The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program honors Georgia's highest achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in their academic development. This year, Southwest DeKalb is proud to announce that Jordan Brown, class of 2016, is our STAR student. Jordan was surprised by her family, teachers and friends when they stormed her classroom as the announcement was made. Jordan selected Mr. Raymond Maple, AP U.S. History teacher, as her STAR teacher. This is the third time that Mr. Maple has been honored as the STAR Teacher. Both Jordan Brown and Mr. Maple will be honored at the state banquet.

Financial aid information will be presented to parents and students new to the financial aid process.
