Winnebago High School Reviews

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.
Review Winnebago High School
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.
Overall I did have a wonderful time in the Winnebago High School. The teachers was always fun and principle would talk to students to see how they are doing. He goes to any sporting events. The only problem was the coach on the varsity volleyball team for my junior and senior year. She would never allow me to play because of how short I was and I barely was able to practice much with the starting players. I sat on the bench the almost the whole season for my senior year.
