All schools are the same but the people from each are different. Some are nice others can be mean I feel like Window Rock High School has those types of people. The staff and students are nice from there but when you look at the students are high school they don't go quite far in life. The school in the past year have been making sure every student is on top of their game and helping them a part of the way towards college. They have so many opportunities from college fests to afterschool sports and clubs. I learn a lot when they bring colleges to the campus or guess speakers who tell us information from their experience. Window Rock High School is one of the best schools there are because with each student they care about their safety and their education. It's why I give it the rate of excellence because that's what they want for us as students.

Window Rock High School is best known for sports than academics. It is a calm environment and everybody is nice, once you get to know the students and teachers. Teachers are nice and helpful, most of the time. The appreciation of Navajo culture and Native American culture is very high for a high school full of Navajo students. There is no downgrade in cultures because everybody is widely accepted in a school full of minorities. Teachers do their best to ensure an increase in test scores and grades. We try to improve ourselves as a school and as a student to make Window Rock High School a better school than it ever was. The teachers and the superintendent all try their best to make Window Rock High School better in education to be equal with the school's sports performance.
Window rock High School was an F school when i first attended my sophomore year. The majority of the population was Navajo yet were very accepting of those who were not native. One thing i would change though is implementing more AP classes and DE. The communication with counselors was not that great since I was never told that I was not going to receive college credit for my English Class even when I asked repeatedly and was told to get back to class.
