Welcome from Principal Marvin Burton
Marvin Burton – Executive Principal
Greetings from Little Rock Southwest Magnet High School. Welcome to the home of the Gryphons!
It is an honor and privilege to be the principal of such an amazing state-of-the-art high school. Little Rock Southwest is the district’s first high school to be built in over 50 years, and will be the new flagship high school for the State’s capitol city.
Our passion is reflected in our efforts to provide a rigorous, engaging, challenging and rewarding educational experience for our scholars. We are committed to a culture that supports our scholars emotional, intellectual, social and physical needs.
LRSW encompasses a school culture that is committed to our college and career focus, which can only be accomplished through active and meaningful partnerships with our scholars, families, business industry and community members.
It is my extreme pleasure to work with a committed team of faculty, families and community friends. Together, we will prepare a new generation of scholars who will graduate from LRSW ready for both college and careers and prepared to compete successfully in the 21st century economy.
