They have a variety of core classes that are geared for preparing the students to attend college or vocational training school. They have an excellent staff of teachers as well as support staff. Their special education staff are a very caring group of professionals who do whatever they can to assist their students. Besides its staff, the campus itself is pretty nice. It is definately huge!

Windsor High School's greatest assets to date have been its first two principals, Jeff Harding and Patricia Law. Both care deeply about students, about the impact of their school in the community, and about creating a great work environment. Consequently, most of the faculty are committed and supportive. In particular I commend the counseling staff at WHS. All three of my children spent their entire high school years at WHS and graduated under the direction of Mr. Harding and Ms. Law. No school is perfect, and getting three kids through was not without issue, but Mr. Harding and Ms. Law provided exemplary leadership and fair administration. Harding and Law set the bar high.

This is a great high school with a creative schedule of classes and focus areas. Because it is a new school, students involved in leadership get to assist in major changes. The administration is wonderful and very considerate. They also allow for student involvement in major areas such as teacher interviews. The AP and honors program is outstanding, with wonderful teachers that work far beyond their job description. There is also a comprehensive career center also staffed with amazing people ready to help students. Music and art programs are readily available and outstanding in their achievements. The boosters program exemplifies parent involvement and gives back readily to the student organizations. The club organization is also outstanding.

I was one of the first graduates of this high school, proudly graduating with the class of 1999. Now, as a 23 year old adult, I am appreciative for the high level of education that I received through the Windsor School District. The administrative staff was knowledgeable and energetic. Jeff Harding, the principal made decisions about academics, discipline, and extracurriculars based on the needs and well being of his students. He knew all of our names and most of our parent's names! I can not say enough about the teaching staff. As this is a new school, they all have recently chosen WHS as the place they want to teach, and it is apparent. And in turn, all were hand chosen because they were the best. The impact that WHS teachers have on their students lasts a lifetime. In short, your children would be lucky to experience a Windsor education.

WHS is a new and shining star. Academics and alternatives are encouraged to provide well rounded education. The 'Core' concept is an innovative approach to education with good & bad points, but a worthy tool. As a parent of a student, I support WHS as a highly acceptable high school experience.

Unfortunately, this is a school that suffers from a definite lack of administrative courage and vision. The general attitude of most students toward academics is summed up in one word: apathetic. There are major attendance issues and discipline problems because of poor administrative guidance. For example, throughout the 2003-04 school year, the principal spoke in staff meetings about parents being clients, teachers being customer service representatives, and students being products. This may work in some abstract theoretical discussion, but in terms of actual public education, a teacher is a teacher and must be allowed the freedom to deal with upset or concerned parents; a parent is a parent and not a client; and a student is a young person in need of guidance and knowledge, not stuffing. Rather than worry about Public Relations and bribing students with prizes for test scores, academics before apathy. Negative API says it all.

Windsor H.S. is a cool place for kids to go to learn in a new school to work program in the core classes. The kids have to dress buisness like dress they call it profesional day. There athletic program is great and enjoyable for all.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
