Ava Jalapeno Popper Romero i remember those days at westbrough junior high i went there from 7-8th grade from 2001-2003 at a special ed class before i become a half general ed to half general ed student at el camino high school, most of my neighbors went to alta loma, but not me because the middle school i went to i didnt have to wear uniforms, yay, i got to where age approval like for example cartoons like pokemon and disney were allowed at westbrough junior high, we followed the same schedule as El camino kids and same policies as the colts did, we both got out at 3pm those were the memories and mrs.dunne my special ed teacher was super amazing and the teacher’s aides were super wonderful too! so mrs.dunne took our classmates on a lot of community outing she introduce me to serramonte farmers market and nowadays still go there even on a saturday to buy fresh produce and i love cooking as it is and we also went to the san francisco library and our classmates use computers on the upper floor, those were fun times in and out of my westbrough community miss those days

Cecil Branner Where was that school @ in south city ?

Everything South City to  Cecil Branner It was/is on Southwood Drive and is now used for

Marcia Colhour It was too close to home!

Judy Stone By closing Southwood students who live in the most south parts of the city must attend Alta Loma, at the north end of the city. That’s a long way.

Kristi Allard And that was after Proposition 13 screwed all kids … there were no buses to take the kids across town.

Vinny Vance Especially when you live 300 yards away…

Denise Spurgeon Sicchio Had good times there in 7th and 8th grade before it closed

Sharon Albera Went to Alta Loma.

Beverly Spatafore Met a good group of people there! The Searson family were the best of all!

Antonio Xavier Gomez Loved Southwood . Would play on the rooftops . Jump from cafeteria to gym.

Christine Dias-Nelson Closed the year i was supposed to go there. Great baseball memories though!;)

Cynthia Arias where was this school located???

Carlos TheDestroyer Solis Baden

Michelle Bissell Morgan Ewwww Southwood ” Savages” ???? That not politically incorrect at all!!! Lol

Christine Robinson-Sbragia I do

Eve Vuillemainroy We had SamTrans to take us to and from Alta Loma on a special route – no same person older than 18 would get on that bus. The bus driver rocked 106 KMEL and he most likely listed to KSOL… The Savages were little Warriors – Southwood graduates went on to So. City and became Warriors.

Eva Musante Castro That’s awesome. Class of 85 were the last 8th graders to attend Southwood n the 1st 9th grades to go to South City High or EC High

Tony Costakis Somebody here on FB posted a bunch of Southwood school newspapers and other related items awhile back. Who’s got them?

Everything South City Hey Tony Costakis – pretty sure they are in the photo album here…. and also on this other group that was archived on this facebook page:  Southwood Junior High School

Mike Martinelli home of the GREAT G JONES & J HENRY

Lori Ferreyra I remember being in the last class there before they closed the school
