I like most of the teachers at Winder Barrow. Some of them are subpar and make their students feel stupid and don't help as much as they should. This happens especially often in the Honors and AP classes. Overall though, the experience there was a good one!

Having gone to only one high school in my life, I can say truthfully that all of my ratings are based on expectations of what a high school should be like. And to say that it is the best or even worst is an understatement. For me, the school is clean (of course, students are students- and they vandalize property), but there are occasional bugs. And the food is not great, but that is based solely on the fact that the school follows a strict guideline so that students who are allergic to foods do not have to worry about getting sick. Also the staff is pretty nice in turn. Though the academic side of the school depends on the class type you are taking. Because Winder Barrow High School follows a block schedule, it is hard for students to remember and fully learn the concepts between the previous and next class (like algebra 1 and algebra 2).
What I like about Winder Barrow High School is that is very diverse, while still being connected with one another. Views aren't a huge factor to tear people apart. I noticed that whether the person is religious, they're still accepting to those who are in the lgbt+ community. What I would like to see change is how disrespectful the students are to teacher or those of higher authority. Mainly the sophomore and freshan are those who seem to think they run everything and think they're right all of the time.
