The WHS has good staff who are willing to help students succeed. Its a good school to attend; its more of a family-feel since everyone knows each other. However, it does need to offer a variety of courses such as introduction to engineering and/or computer science; courses that are more applicable to the real world. It also needs to offer more AP courses to challenge students. It also needs to improve its technology.
Good academic programs. All teachers I have come across do seem to care about the students. I would rate this school much higher in academics than the previous Bay Area High School my kids were in. For the size of the school, the size of the music and art department is quite large. Winters H.S. offers more choices in music and art where many other California H.S. have cut these programs. Parent involvement seems to be the same people who have always been involved and is difficult in my opinion in H.S. A negative comment would be since it is a small community and most kids have known each other since grade school, they tend to be 'stuck' in their groups.
