I loved going to Winona Senior High. I was involved in W-Club, Student Council, Tennis, Softball, and my freshman year I was even on the girls hockey team! As a senior last year I was also in the running for Winhawk of the year and was given opportunities to get college credit through hybrid classes! I also loved most of my teachers and made very good connections with both staff and students. Planning pep-festa and attending football games were my favorite activities. There is always something going on and things to keep students busy.

There wasn't much I liked about Winona Senior High School. Our school didn't have a lot of funding, and there were always budget cuts, but that made some of the teachers and students very resourceful and resilient. But many members - from staff to students - seemed willing to just get by on the average, which was not the same drive I held. I was able to find the place where I belonged though, helped along by a few teachers who love their work and deserve much better. There's a lot of tension within school groups that revolves mainly around funding, as that's where most of the problems in the school come from. That, and lazy, rude students with no willingness to learn.
The four years I spent at Winona Senior High School were among some of the best years of my life. Just like every one says, high school flew by for me. Those four years are just a small portion of your life, but they can be the most impactful. You discover who you are, you change, you develop, and you make plans that will change your life. One downfall about Winona Senior High School is they do not make many students aware of the college courses that may be offered to them. I believe this high school needs to make a stronger effort to prepare students for their future. Many students, including myself, did not have an older sibling to guide me on making the important decision on where to attend college, so if Winona Senior High School would add that in for students, I believe it would set many more of them up for a successful future.
