worst school every , the teachers are not motivated to teach. I pulled out my daughter and put her in another public school and she is doing much better
hi i go to winman and dont like it all thanks for all the horrible years
My daughter finished school there. This school has an outstanding honors program. We moved to one of the best school districts(if not the best) in the state. There is not much opportunities for an exceptional talent kid to grow there. If you have an exceptional talent kid, you will be pleased to send your kid to this school.
as a sevnth grader at winman jr. high school I think that it's a great school and I enjoy going to school each and every day. Personally, I don't think that this school is too crowded at all, there are plenty of unused lockers here and the classrooms are just right. some classes are very small and others are normal sized. And most of my friends would write the same things about this school.
This still needs alot of improvement. Too many students, too few teachers, almost no school supplies. Though the school is administrated fairly well, there are too many gaps in their day-to-day operations, which trickles throughout the entire school. Overall, Winman JHS is acceptable if private or charter schools are not an option.
this school is OKAY. i am a 8th grader attending currently. first of all, it seems teachers are teaching for the NECAP, and not real life. some of the teachers are nice. some will go out of there way to help kids. some teachers could care less about you. there are a lot of intimidating kids, i stay away from them and im fine. ive had things stolen before. gym clothes, a pencil box, and a calculator, total cost...around 135 bucks...school did nothing. the p.e class is terrible, with lack of funding...non athletic and athletic kids are forced into elementary activities which don't help anyone. another problem is the layout of the bathrooms. most teachers wont let kids go to the bathroom...and they expect you to go in between periods, which is only 3 mins. bathrooms are poorly placed and are disgusting. the lack of funding to this school is obvious
I am attending Winman as a seventh grader and I agree that the teachers are very nice, and that they guard the halls every morning, but it is not true that children get beaten up in the hall. I have seen one fight in this school and a teacher broke up the fight and the children were sent to the principles office and assigned suspension. As a student the academics of the school are a little under where i accpected them to be. a lot of it is review of 6th grade. Overall i would reccomend Winman to any parent.
My advice would be if you could avoid sending your child to this school do so at all costs. The facility and teachers are very nice but there is a definite problem with violence in this school which administration is turning a blind eye to. My child has been threatened and seen other child beaten up in the hallway. Children are attending this school in fear and nothing is being done. They promise to fix the problem and then do nothing. It has been a horrible experience for our entire family.
This school is an okay school. The teachers and principals guard the halls every morning. You have no freedom in this school. At Toll Gate you have a lot more freedom. The availability of music programs are always there. You have to take a music class. There arn't any sports only after school sports like once a week.
My daughter was just enrolled at winman shes in 8th grade. The school looks very clean and well kept my daughter like it and the teachers are very nice this is an amazing school.
My grandson has special needs and all teachers are suppose to follow his 504 plan. Not one has done so to this point and he is already in the third quarter. I realize that the teachers have been working without a contract but this should not affect the effort put in during regular class hours. When a student has a 504 plan, it is required, by law, that this be followed. My grandson is being left behind and something needs to be done about this. His parents and grandparents have been doing everything in our power to raise his grades and understanding of his subjects but we need help and guidance from his teachers and guidance counselor or this will not work. Follow the 504 plan given to you that he's had since day one and maybe we can salvage his confidence that he can thrive in this 'normal' world.
I was a student at Winman Junior high school. I was there for seventh and eighth grade. It is a horrible school. If you are looking to send your child to this school, my words of advice are don't. My brother was thrown down a set of stairs on the last day of school by a kid who didn't like him, and do you know what the school did? Nothing. The kid was leaving, so what did they care? Not only did he get beat-up, his backpack and watch were also stolen. No action on the school's part. Please, don't go to this school if you care about your future.
