My experience through all four years of high school at the Windsor High School have been memorable. High School was really fun because we got to choose our choice of study based on our core system. Our core system consists of three classes which in our case it being an English, history, and art/design class which meet graduation requirements. I am currently in Nueva which is a performing arts program which focuses on incorporating arts into our learning. My counselor has helped shaped the person I am today by pushing me to success and always telling me that all my hard work would pay off in the end. I am excited to continue my journey and take all the skills I have learner from high school and apply them into the real world. High School Is a place where I learned more about myself and how to spread kindness and awareness.
As a senior, I've seen WHS though multiple principals and numerous changes over the years. I feel fortunate to have such caring and compassionate teachers who strive to best prepare their students for the future. For me, WHS was the right environment to learn but also enjoy my high school years, as the student body made having fun easy. I hope that our administration is more reliable in the future, as that was the main aspect that I found lacking about the school.
