All staff at this school care greatly for students. They have gone above and beyond to help me graduate this year. Without Winfree I would be a high school drop out with no plan for the future. Now I am graduating and attending NCTC in the fall. Thank you Winfree for helping me see I can have a better future.

Winfree Academy changed my life. I have never met teachers who care more for there students and there well being. I am very proud to say i not only went to Winfree but graduated early. Winfree was the best thing to happen to me in my high school years.

My son was not motivated, was not ingaged, and was falling behind at our public high school. Winfree was our only hope to see him graduate and succeed. The teachers and staff are highly qualified, certified teachers or care about their students and go above the call to see the students be successful and graduate. Winfree was the best thing that happened to my son. He got caught up, his grades became higher, and he graduated. He is in college now and using his tools of independent study learned at Winfree to be successful in his college career. Thank you Winfree!



- a parent
If you are looking for a school that well help motivate your student, this is not the one for you. If you are looking for a school that keeps you informed, this is not the school for you.




- a parent
I'll be honest and say that this isn't the right environment for everyone. For some students, however, this is the only environment that works. Also, the teachers at this campus well exceeds what we'd see at our ISD. Everyone just cares so much.

A school trying to help out students that have fallen through the cracks at Denton ISD.
