I went to winton woods myself so I felt that my children would get a great learning experience here as I did! Boy was I wrong! I am actually considering filing a lawsuit against winton woods city schools. My son who is in one of the elementary schools was reprimanded by his substitute teacher for turning in his work wrong five times. The fifth time he went to turn it in the teacher put her hands in his face because she was fed up with him coming up to her desk! I have went to the superintendent on this matter and the principal and they all seem to beat around the bush on this matter. Along with the fact that none of them have a clue on anything that is going on with my sons education. I wouldn't recommend this school district to any parents with any children with learning disabilties the staff there are not trained correctly.

WWHS is one of the most unique schools in this country. It has a program called Academy of Global Studies, where you learn real-life skills in a diversified global environment. The connections it establishes with overseas schools are amazing.

Winton woods is a good school, it's just way students act. It's mostly an all black school, and some call it gehtto. Not all of them act out but a majority do.

I am a student attending winton woods high school, and all I see is differences and racial boundary and conflict between student, and racial profiling against student from teachers. They try to pry money and funds out of students and parents by using madatory trips and uniforms, (which is a joke might i add) then the funding is wasted on its sports programs, instead of academic curriculum and the arts. If theres any smart decision a student or parent could make; its not going to this school. I am so glad i switched to Scarlet Oaks.

I graduated from Winton Woods High School just last year (2010), and it is not taking on the mold of the typical urban community school. I attend Miami University in Oxford, OH, and I am an education major, and I'm concentrating on schools with an urban setting. For those who think WWHS is "Urban", would you please tell me your definition of "urban" so I can easily inform you of your ignorance? I graduated at the top of my class, and there is a strong emphasis in academics, extra-curriculars, and community service at WWHS. They want to cultivate a world class education by making well-rounded students. academic talents are great, yes, but WWHS tries to bring out the best in everyone, not just their book smarts, because that's what makes people stand out. Being just a bookworm isn't all that excites colleges. They want to see the GPA and the extra activities. It makes you looked like a balanced, model student, and this is what WWHS staff try to promote every single day with all of their students. Get your head out of the clouds people!! Don't try and defame the reputation of Winton Woods because the students are told to explore ALL their interests and encouraged to BE THEMSELVES!

When I graduated in '01, the school had a lot of problems, but nowhere near the disorder which exists now. I do feel I received a good education, and I did well in college as a result. However, the school is beginning to fit that mold of the urban public school with problems it has tried to distance itself from. There is too much emphasis on specific athletics, and not so much the arts, in which there exists great choral, band and dramatic programs. Parents are not being listened to, and many of them are teachers in the district. I fear the future of this school, big time.

Winton Woods is not equipped to take care of students with learning disabilities. They also do not respect the opinion of the parents. If your child is not and A student do not send them to WWMS. I now home school my child because we live in WW school district.

I have read all of the posted reviews here and they are all varied as have been their experiences and the the experiences of their student child. My child just graduated from Winton Woods High School, Class of 2009 with a very good education, preparation and focus for the future, and a sense of Warrior Pride! I have found the staff and administration equally supportive, interested, and concerned for all students. Any childs education is a partenership between parents and school. If you aren't comitted to your childs success, don't down the school for not being able to carry the full burden of individual students. I thank and appreciate the Staff and Administration of WWHS for all they have done!

I feel Winton Woods High school is a great school. I have 2 children who graduated from there and went on to college and one more to go. I agree that the parents need to take a more active roll in their childrens academics as well as behavior. The teachers and staff are their to teach not to babysit our children.

This school is a good fit for very small number of kids. The administration tends to take favorites. I attended this school Freshman year and my family has plans of moving out of the district. All in all, I totally hated this school.

My daughter attends the high school and is having an excellent experience at the schools. If your child wants to learn, they can obtain a quality education here.

My daughter is a 9th grader at Winton Woods as well as my granddaughter. I feel the school did an excellent job in preparing thiem for Freshman year. It can be a little scary coming to a new school and when it is high school that's a whole different type of drama. However when children know what you except of them it removes some of the anxiety. Freshman orientation provided not oly the exceptations for my daughter but also for me as a parent.

I am a recent 2008 Winton Woods graduate. Winton Woods is a school of amazing teachers, who helped me get into Ohio State on a full academic scholarship. Some people look at our school with a negative image, but those people are the ones who don't know. People should always support their local schools-those kids are the future leaders of the world.

I am a former student of this school, with siblings still there. When I graduated in 2002, I was proud to be a WWHS alumni. Now as I prepare to get married and have a family of my own, I am making sure to stay away. The rules no longer make sense and the administration does not care like it used to. WW used to be called the private school education of public schools. Now it just has a bad reputation. Uniforms do nothing but cost parents more money. Administration just does not listen to parents. It's no wonder the levy keeps failing

HS has come a long way since 2005 ratings. Uniforms, new teachers. Teachers care deeply about the student on a holistic basis (not just their particular class). Typical grad. class is around 290-300. Faculty is very tight knit and will often collaborate to help a struggling student. Discipline is firm, fair and consistent. Football team in Div II playoffs last two years. Music/Drama programs even better. Many clubs and sports for a student to be involved in. Our school tries very hard to treat students as if they were in the 'real world'. We do offer Honors and AP classes in multiple areas. Great programs, staff and students. While our HS is NOT Beverly Hills 90210, it is worthy of a visit.

The school does have problems, But what school doesn't. I see poor student supervision as a problem, during the day and especially during after school activities, kids running through the halls and even a fighting. (That I won't tolerate, my child was gulity of this, and was disciplined). The Music program is one of the best around. Those kids and teachers really do good work together. Overall, I'm fairly happy with our school. However, we always have room for impovement.

My son dropped out of this school at the age of 15 and is just now going back to school in Milford. he dropped out due to the racial negitivity from the black kids to the white, dress code rules were to strict and he was put down by teachers and administration.

The school has a very good principal, an excellent music, and decent extra-curriculars. However not enough parents are involved in making this high school work. And because the building is pretty small there seems to be a lot more students to keep up with than there really are. It's an OK school, but it could use some work.

Overall it is a great school. People just look down us for some reason. We all work very hard and the teachers and staff are great.
