Winchester Community High School Reviews

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.

I currently go to Ball State University, but graduated from Winchester Community High School. Although I use the classroom objectives that I learned, I learned much more from just seeing my teachers interact with others. The teachers are phenomenal and do the best they can under the restrictions that schools across the nation face. I would 100% recommend Winchester Community High School. Julie Smiley is the reason that I have went on to study science.
There are not enough college prep courses offered.
Also, the students at this high school are at a disadvantage when applying to the Ivy League colleges. as we use the 4.0 grading scale, many Ivy League colleges use a higher grading scale.
