The teachers at Winnetka have gone far beyond what is necessary to help the students be successful and understand the material presented. This is our fourth year at the school. The principal is very involved with the students and attends many of the outside events of the school. She attended the Math Olympiad and the Spelling Bee for two of the outside events. This school is totally dedicated to the students.
I have worked as a teacher in several schools including Tyler ISD and Fort Worth ISD and I can tell that this is the BEST school atmosphere I have found in 12 years. The administrative staff are really good and care about the students and the teachers. The teachers work hard and care about their students. It is amazing to see how involved is the school in the community. After school, you find many different students dancing, playing football, attending special art classes, tutoring... the school is never alone. One of the main problems is the parents involvement which could be better but this is being solved by the fact that classes are offered to parents, too. I love Winnetka!
This is an excellent school with teachers that truly care about their student's success.
In simple words, unorganized, dont care about the students. They treat kids as if it's a juvenile and not a school. Some teachers are good and they make a difference but unfortunately the system they have makes the school bad. I do want to praise Mrs. Solis, she is wonderful with kids, all her students love her and the others wish they had her for a teacher.
My Son had Mrs. Solis as his kindergarden teacher. She was an outstanding teacher very comaptionate and loving and most of all she was my sons inspiration to learn and be an exelent student
