Winder-Barrow High School Reviews

I loved my school. As one of two high schools in the town, ours was the superior school. Our teachers cared about their students and created a climate of learning that outweighed other petty teenager concerns. They created a safe learning environment free from most distractions from drugs, pregnancy, etc. They encouraged us to seek knowledge beyond our coursework and inspired us to do our very best and achieve our goals. I felt encouraged to share my opinions and engage in lively debate, both with teachers and other fellow students. We had opportunities to participate in clubs, sports, educational outings and competitions to further our learning.
Review Winder-Barrow High School
This high school in particular was a football-based high school. They did their best to bump up honor graduate students counts (which was very easy since they kept making their education easier and easier) and then brag about it. The school did not do their best in order to prepare students for college. In fact, they did the bare minimum. What ever this school could do in order to bump up the popularity of the high school football team (lower the funds of the music classes such as band and choir, lower the funds for other sports, etc.) then they had no problem doing it. Would recommend sending advanced students to a different high school.
Winder is known for it's nice and welcoming atmosphere. It is not the typical high school with cliques and fights. Everyone seems to get a long with everyone and there are rarely ever any fights. My favorite high school memory is cheering on my doggs under those friday night lights! Here at Winder, we spell bulldoggs with double "gg" for double the effort! If I had to, I would choose my school again and do it all over again.
