I had a great experience while attending Winnebago High School. The teachers made it fun to learn and they truly care about the success of their students. The school comes together with the community when it comes to the sport. Winnebago High School students always supported their athletes, they dressed up the the football and basketball games. At Winnebago, everyone had their place, whether it was participating in sports, the school plays, band/ chorus.

To begin to describe the teachers at my school, I have to first say that if the student shows commitment and apply themselves first, the teacher's attitude toward them will follow. Majority of my teachers utilize power point presentations and smart board for lessons. This technology allows teachers to come to class prepared by having their lesson prepared ahead of time which gives us students an outlook of what each unit will include.

I have found our school to have very caring teachers who are always willing to give extra time to students who want to accelerate in their education.
This school is small, so everyone knows each other. Teachers make mistakes with names sometimes, but then they say sorry and sometimes they give out candy for it. Everyone is pretty nice.
