Alum: I was so fortunate to go to school here — AMAZING school district. I loved the teachers, they were always helpful & there for you and were amazing teachers Academically with great personalities. The school is very football oriented and other sports don’t get as much attention; however, the Football team has a history of being great (which brings in money & attention) & the head coach does a ton of fundraising (unlike many other sports) — so it makes sense why the town is so football oriented. This was my only complaint about going there, being a female who played sports other than football, but i understand why my sports didn’t receive the attention or funding that football did. Anyone who speaks less about this school didn’t utilize their resources or has biased information.

Senior: I really liked that Pecatonica High School is a small school, which allowed me to play multiple sports. I also liked that I was able to go in and talk to my teachers at any time, and they got to know us on a personal level, which showed that they cared. They were always willing to help whenever I had questions. Because the school is small, I know the administration well, and they are always pushing us to do our best and be as prepared for college as possible. One thing I wish Pecatonica High School offered was more elective class choices. I would have liked to have an opportunity to take classes teaching us some basic life skills, such as cooking, paying bills, and managing money.

Niche User: Attending Winnebago High School was one of the greatest experiences that I have had! The teachers there really care for their students and want them to succeed. I personally got along better with the teachers rather than the students. Its a clean, welcoming, and encouraging environment. It is a small community so everyone knows everybody. In some ways its not always ideal but in cases where seeking help is needed, you know that there is always someone there who understands. I wish I could go back!
