I transferred to Windthorst during middle school, and on the very first day, I knew it was exactly where I was suppose to be. It is a small town which makes it easy to get connections and to make friends. I built friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime. Windthorst is all about traditions and keeping those small town values at heart. I would not trade my experience for anything- Windthorst will always be a place that I can call home. I do not believe that I would change anything in Windthorst because it has it's own special character.

Windthorst High School is one of the best small schools. Since it is so small, all the teachers know about every single student. The teachers are very polite and easy to get along with. They're always there for you, when in need of help on any subject. They have so many teaching styles that consists of watching videos, book work, practicing on white boards and much more! My favorite is learning vocabulary by spelling them out in shaving cream! All of our teachers have great knowledge. They usually always know the answers to a problem or question, if we ask them. Our teachers are very interested in us students as well! They know what we agree and disagree on, our plans for the future, what we could work on more in school for better knowledge, and even know a little about where we can from and what we enjoy to do. Almost all of them support us in all we do; if it's sports, school, or etc. Communication skills are very good! All teachers have a class number that will send out group messages, to remind us about activities going on and what we need to bring. Also, they will let us know ahead of time on what we will be doing that week for if we have to make up work, if out. Now with the consistency of grading, they are usually pretty fair and constant about it. Most every teacher has the same grading policy, unless it's a science class. Science classes have a little different grading system due to labs. So this is all about our school and what the teachers bring, to make it an excellent school.
My experience at Windthorst was what every high school experience should be. It’s a very small close knit town where everywhere you go you know someone. The only thing I would change about Windthorst High School is the lack of course available. That’s the only downside of going to a small school.
