I had pretty good experience at Winder-Barrow High School. I loved most of my teachers and they almost all seemed to care if I did well in their class. Winder-Barrow has a lot of school spirit and all sporting events are a very big deal, especially football games. Friday night lights were some of the best memories I made throughout of high school career. Everyone also dressed according to the themes for that particular game and it was always such a good time. I also enjoyed making new friends and learning so many things throughout my 4 years.

The school is great and the kids and teachers all around help to make it better! The environment is great! Teachers to help you whenever you need the help! The clubs they have after school really are great experiences to have.
Overall, Winder-Barrow High School is a pretty good school. I feel as if the teachers are, most of the time, very dedicated to making sure their students learn as much as possible. However, I feel as if the student body as a whole can give the school somewhat of a jaded reputation. A good handful of the students are involved in drugs, and bullying is not an uncommon occurrence. Nonetheless, the staff tries their best to make the school a safe place for every student, which is admirable.
