Winchester Community High School Reviews

Some teachers seem to have the motive of making friends with students rather than giving a fair chance of learning to all. Certain students are allotted privileges and get a leg up on others in terms of class scheduling opportunities and involvement in beneficial extracurricular and community activities. However, Winchester does offer several college credit courses and has rich arts programs. Though the school corporation as a whole may place a little too much emphasis on athletics as opposed to academics, the school spirit sports bring is positive and does bring the student body together.

Winchester has many opportunities for students to gain college credits in high school which is fantastic. The vocational wing has grown tremendously in the past three years, and now you can leave with a number of national certifications. Welding and manufacturing have become a big part of Winchester High School, and has brought in many new students. One thing I would like to change is how students interact. Everybody is friendly, but there is also a very competitive nature at our school, sometimes to the point where other students and even parents wish failure upon other kids.
WCHS is like any other high school, or so I imagine. There is the typical activities such as Homecoming, Prom, and assorted clubs. There seem to be a constant influx and efflux of teachers, besides a few that are veterans. The teachers that stay are hit and miss, some students hate them and some students love them, but either way you seem to get a thorough education no matter how demeaning they are. There is rarely any major drama, at least not in my eyes, except for the random spouts of athletic and sports related problems. The school itself does seem to be falling apart a little bit. The bathrooms are decades old and hardly working, and we seem to be behind on the technology curve, but most students prefer paper and pencil. Overall, WCHS is a textbook high school, average in everything but the advancing girls basketball team, multimillion dollar welding unit, and satisfying snack bar.
