I graduated from Winterboro High School in 1974.... I am amazed at what this school has become. This school was the pilot school for new Technology established in the Talladega County School System. The Alabama State School Superintendant, Dr. Thomas R. Bice has recommended that all others systems in the state view the procedures used by this school system. Winterboro is a hot spot for visits from educators all across the country because of their cutting edge methods to learning. $5,000 will surely be used to further the education of todays brightest minds by providing more resourses.
My school Winterboro High, is a small county school but offers excellent education for all students. They can compete upon college enrollment with any big city school students. The interaction between students and teachers is outstanding with high quality teachers and some of the latest technology implemented preparing them for higher education. My granddaughter graduated with highest honors in 2010 as a fourth generation student at this little rock school and has maintained a 4.0 average in college in the pre-med field. My one complaint would be the school lunches that all students are required to now endure. We want our children to eat healthy food but it is not healthy when they will not eat the less than "tasty" food served and then go home or to the nearest fast food establishment and then eat too much. Not good!
I go to Winterboro High School it is a great school! We have fun and learn lots of new things.
I am a graduate of Winterboro and my two children currently attend there. I think that more emphases should be put on the students academics. Too many students are having problems passing the graduation exam. I do not understand how a student make it to the 12 grade and not get their diploma. Sure, discipline is important, however it should be given in moderation and more emphases on education.
winter boro is a great school to be in.At winterboro you are surrounded great teachers.I feel that this is where it all happens.I also think that i will be able to accomplish my dreams because the lovely teachers gave me the confidence.
I do not care care for the teachers at this school at all. They let the children run all over them and do whatever they please. It is like they are scared of them or something. I pulled my kid out and put them in other school because of the bullying that was going toward the teachers and students.
Excellent school! I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their child in a smaller setting with a highly motivated and very caring faculty.
I feel that Winterboro is a great school, the teachers are EXCELLENT they push students to be better-do more and work harder. Winterboro has changed the way I look at my future.
I am a graduate of WHS (year 1974). I must say that over the years it has changed. I have had 4 children to graduate from this school with accomplishments. The leadership at the school is what our kids need, because if there were not strict rules & discipline, I'm afraid WHS would be in the category of murderers & suicide. The bible says, 'if you spare the rod, you spoil the child.' So in other words, a lot of parents are killing their children without laying a hand on them. I thank God for WHS!
I also have a child attending Winterboro. The principal isn't the problem.He's better than the rest we've had.The problem is uncaring, incompetent teachers. They just throw the work at you. If you do it fine, if not, that's fine too.
I must must say that Winterboro High School has always been dear to me. I am a graduate and have children that attend there. The leadership that was sent to us this 2003-2004 school year has been a disgrace. It is all about him. He has no respect for others opinions or ideas. I am a very active parent at WHS. This man wants the school to be ran as a prison... and cares nothing about the students, and the sad thing about it is some of the teachers agree but are afraid to voice there opinions. Please consider these comments that are being posted on this site. We want our children to be treated fairly and equal. It's sad but its true, Its His Way or No Way.
This school have always been a great learning facility. Only in the past year has it been a big dissppointment to me. The leadership is the biggest problem. I don't feel as though the principal cares for the students at all at this school but the one he came from. He don't encourage our students in any way. Only to show he's the boss. We need someone not only to teach our children but to care for them. I will be glad when my children graduate from Winterboro.
