Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
May 23, 2015
As effective as they can be given the limitations that they have to work under.

Amount of homework: Just right
May 23, 2015
It would be the right amount if more students would actively do their homework & more parents would keep up with what their student is or is not doing academically.

Develops grit: Strongly agree

I believe that they try to. However, if the home environment has not developed these values at an early age, it's an uphill battle for teachers and administrators to try to do so.

Great teachers, doing the best they can in a difficult teaching environment with not as much parental support as there should be. Too many parents wanting to blame teachers when students are not behaved. When in reality, if parents had "parented" their child responsibly then there wouldn't be students needing to be "controlled."

Ive lived in Windsor Forest my whole life and i feel like a parent should not be so disrespectful and immature when talking about the school who is providing their child an education for free. The school may have its downfalls but as do all schools in the U.S. Maybe instead of believing what your child "says" go experience yourself. And if you have maybe you and your child just had a bad experience and that happens with every school. Not everyone can be happy.

The school is horrible! The maintenance of the entire school is very poor, most of the students have very little respect for others, including teachers, some of the teachers could care less about their students education, and how they run everything is just ridiculous! Out of all the schools I've been to, this is the worst. They said this was one of the best in the county?! I for one could say that it isn't one of the best. I do not recommend sending students to get their education here.

This is the better of the schools in the district but I would never send another child there. They are defiantly not a military friendly school.

School needs help! My son graduated from Windsor in 2008. My daughter went there from 2007-2010. I transferred her out of Windsor for her senior year due to the increased lack of respect that some of the students had towards teachers and other students. The school lost a great principle, and band director last year and another band director who left I believe in 2008 and transferred to another school. Once the school buckles down and takes care of the deliquents and disrespect, it can become a great school again!

I am a senior here at WFHS and have been attending it all 4 years. I Love it. The teachers take the innitiative to motivate the students and make sure their doing what they are supposed to be doing. I must say though, that the staff, especially the principle and the assistant principle, focus too much on what we look like rather than our academics. Many students end up leaving school early, going to ISS or returning to class late because of a shirt untucked or no ID. Its ridiculous. But like I said I love the school and I would recommend it.

WFHS is one of the best in Chatham County, but the county's school system is horrible. The faculty worry more about how the students look more than how they are doing with academics.

WFHS is definitely one of the best public high schools in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System. The staff and faculty are dedicated to providing local students with a high-quality education. There are the occasional fights and behavioral problems- things that you would normally associate with an inner-city high school. The extracurricular involvement is relatively poor. Students here do not seem overly motivated to participate in many activities. Parental support is also a huge issue. Teachers and administrators are constantly trying to figure out ways to improve the dwindling relationships between the teachers and parents.

I was very worried about sending my daughter whom has been very shelterd her whole life to Windsor Forest High School. She loves it, I know have 2 daughters there. THe staff and principles are great. Thanks to all of their hard work. I even shadowed my 9th grader last year.

Windsor Forest High School is one of the better public schools in the area. Many people base where they live on the quality of this school. Most of the teachers are very good and demand alot from the kids who go here. I believe with better funding, WFHS could be one of the best in the state.
