Winfree Academy Charter Schools in NRH is the BEST find! My student was having a rough time with being Bullied and dealing with teachers that just didn't care at the ISD. Now, she is going to graduate in the top 10 and I know everyday she is SAFE, happy and receiving a top notch education.

I would not recommend this school for students. Not a place for learning and does not have good leadership or a principal who cares or is ever present. I do not feel students are served well in this environment at all (North Richland Hills)


Posted September 24, 2007

A new school with a great atmosphere for students to learn, The staff really care and help students in every way possible. The school size is small which helps teachers get to know students instead of them just being one of many. The school has a 4 hour day which is very focused on work and cuts out all of the unnecessary and distracting time wasting found in other schools. This type of education can only be found in a private school that costs a lot of money but at Winfree its FREE!

This is a great school for students to catch up with were they want to be in their education.The school size is deliberately kept small so that students get the attention they need. Its self paced 4 hour day is focused on academics rather than other activities which allows students to attend either am or pm classes which many students are looking for so that they can graduate early. The school was only opened last year but already has had to expand it's space as more and more students are enrolling. The staff here are exceptional and very committed to helping students.
