Fantastic school system, provided me with all the tools needed to advance into next grade and school. Thoughtful teachers who want to see you succeed.
While going there I thought it sucked, but compared to other schools it was pretty good. Guidance was awful, no help at all from them.
I'm an Alum of the South Windsor School District. During my tenure I attended Wapping Elementary School(closed, K-5), Timothy Edwards Middle School(6-8) and South Windsor High School(9-12). All three schools were challenging academically and pushed me in order to be equipped for college. In fact, I wish I took more advantage of the college preparatory classes than I did. South Windsor has a fantastic music program, that is dedicated to its students and allows them to grow starting in the 4th grade until they graduate High School. The technology in the schools were also very good. Timothy Edwards(middle school) was renovated in the early 2000s and still has state of the art technology. The town recently approved renovations to all 4 elementary schools in town. All are or will be state of the art facilities once complete. My only critique of South Windsor School District is the diversity. My sister and I who both attended SW had 1 combined black/African American teacher
My experience here with the South Windsor school district was average. It’s definitely great In some departments and lacks in others. Personally I find that their math and science departments could use some work, it could be me who struggles in this area which made it harder but I felt that I never had as much guidance here as I did in the English department. But besides academically, I found that the district was really great when it came to helping and caring about their students. The schools offered so many things for the students and made it easy to reach out. For example they provided everyone with chrome books, made sure people had the options of online or in school learning. They’ve had so many fairs and public gatherings helping out the town, or just for people in need. Was an amazing time here and if I could recommend it to family members or friends who are looking to send their kids off to a good school, I would definitely recommend all the south Windsor public schools.
South Windsor is a great town and has wonderful schools. Teachers are great and care for the students
Our child has spent K and 1st grade in the school system and we have been impressed thus far. Her school is also a “HOT” school (higher order thinking). She also has Spanish and STEM integrated into her curriculum already. We are quite pleased with what she has access to for curriculum as well as the hands on we have received from her teachers (even though her classroom is a larger ratio 23:1).
I LOVE this school district! I love the teachers there. The teachers care and respect their students, and do not exclude any of them.
The teachers and classes are first rate. The diversity of activities to participate in is great. Definitely a great place to go and I will miss it.
Great school with many extracurricular option and sports. Teachers and administration very approachable and competent
My experience was amazing. I love my teacher's, they all work with me when I needs help in any areas of my school work & I love that I get to travel every year for being in band & robotics club.
I would say that my overall experience at this school was fantastic. It had everything I needed from vigorous academics to great teachers who helped me to explore more and learn more. I was able to participate in many clubs and with the diverse amount they had, it gave me more to work with and to choose from. These clubs ranged from Model UN to Math Club to Interact.
South Windsor Schools are amazing. The education there is great and the people there are very friendly. There is a great diversity in the kids and the teachers work hard to help the students.
South Windsor schools have been great. I have typically always had great teachers and never any issues trying to find someone to talk to about any problems. The school system has me well prepared for college.
Though SW is known for it's strong academics and suburban friendly schools, the district is lacking in diversity. However, what it lacks in diversity the school "makes up" in it's teachers and available school clubs and resources.
This school system is great albeit a little strict with administrators breathing down the students' necks constantly. Less administrative involvement may actually foster a better environment for the students
Decent school system. Some of the teachers weren't very helpful. I would recommend teachers become more involved and take into consideration that not all students learn at the same pace.
South Windsor Schools are currently undergoing a massive re-build. Four state of the art schools are being built to provide our children with an education in line with the ever changing times. We are a diverse community and a large town with a small town feel. Out experience has been wonderful thus far. I would recommend South Windsor Schools.
