Winder-Barrow High School Reviews
Good school for all students
Winder-Barrow high school provides a caring and supportive atmosphere for students of all kinds. The administrative staff is attentive to the needs of the students. There are of course the core courses for students to take. But where the school really excels are the wide array of career related courses for students to choose from. No matter what a student's interest, there is probably something at the school to explore that field. My oldest child had graduated, and I couldn't be more pleased.
I understand some of the courses will be offered at the new academy high school. Some see this as a negative, but I think it will be an opportunity for students to explore even more fields of study. Growth and expansion always seem fearful in the beginning, but in the long run provide opportunities that would not have been possible without the vision of growth. I have two more students coming up, and I'm glad it will be at WBHS.
Totally disagree with the previous reviewer. My son doesn't play sports, but he's very involved in JROTC and several other activities. He has loved his years at WBHS and has done well. There are lots of really good teachers, and we have always found it to be a caring, encouraging place. Of course, like everything else in life, what you get out of it depends on how much effort you put into it. We love WBHS and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
If you don't play sports for Winder, none of the Administration or Staff cares about you. Most of the teachers are great, but once they reach retirement age, they should be forced to retire... I would be very hesitant to recommend this school to others.
