Lena-Winslow High School Reviews
Rating 3.47 out of 5 32 reviews
At Lena-Winslow, I love all the activities I’m allowed to participate in. If one conflicts with the other, the people in charge of each activity have the ability to be understanding and will work it out so it’s fair for both programs. However, I feel like not all students get recognized. I think that could change. It seems like if you aren’t in football or volleyball, they don’t even acknowledge your accomplishments. I think that could change a little.
Lena-Winslow is an amazing small town school with very good involvement from both parents and teachers. You can truly tell that the teachers care for your future success and will do anything to help you out. Ever since coming here I’ve changed so much as a person for the better.
I loved that my school was generally accepting of me and who I am, the way they helped people through their issues, and the way disciplinary actiowas taken when people deserved it. I do hope to see the high school take more action in same sex education courses as well as boosting its transgender resources.
Lena- Winlsow High School has prepared me to excel in college. The teachers, staff, and coaches have pushed me and my classmates to become the very best versions of themselves. If you are ever struggling with an assignment they will take time out of their own day to help you out.
The teachers are all pretty good. We all get to work together on homework and nobody is afraid to ask the teacher a question.
Some teachers definitely go above and beyond for their students, however there are several teachers who simply get by, day by day teaching the bare minimum and showing movies and videos instead of engaging the class in discussion. I feel that the technology used in the classroom is not used appropriately and instead of helping students simply distracts them. There needs to be more discussion during lessons instead of powerpoints where all the information is simply given to us and not explained.
The staff is nice and helpfull. The assemblies are fun and full of energy.
We have a small school, which is great because all the teachers know everyone and therefore know who is learning and who is not so the struggling kids get the help they need.
Our football team has won state and has lots of funding.
don't really know about them
the teachers appear handicapped by school policies
There are multiple sports that my school offers, but it is the bare minimum for a small school.
The policy on drug and alcohol use for sports players is not taken very seriously. Often times alcohol use after school and on the weekends is ignored for sports players.
Once again, I do not participate in these sort of things. However, sports are of utmost importance to this school. On several occasions, more important than the actual school itself.
I cannot say too much on the extracurriculars. I am not involved a whole lot in them.
The cafeteria ladies are wonderful, honestly, and they do what they can on a small budget and government restrictions. However, the food is god awful and I have been concerned about the amount of food students are allowed to get: very little. For some students, I'm worried because this may be the only decent meal they get during the day and the fact that the restriction is placed very high... well... Hello partial starvation.
Though in many schools security is high on the priority list, it is not here. There are no security guards or police and I don't believe there's an effective way to protect students if something terrible was to occur other than locking ourselves in class rooms. However, the school is in a very secure location in a good neighborhood where it is very unlikely for a catastrophic event to take place. Not saying that something couldn't happen, but that it is less likely than surrounding areas.
