As a former teacher, I can vouch that they are more interested in numbers than education. Notice how many comments here are from employees of Winfree. Please reconsider if you are thinking of sending your child here.

Winfree Irving has been here for many years upholding the standards of achieving a high school diploma. Students come from near and far to excel in a new setting and many are successful of reaching their goals that may have been delayed due to personal issues (i.e. becoming a parent, full-time employment, illness, accelerated graduation, etc).

I went to MacArthur High School and started having a lot of personal problems that made traditional high school next to impossible. I switched to Winfree hoping to relieve some of the stress and I can honestly say it was the best thing I could've done for myself. I haven't seen such genuine care from a teacher at any other school. The staff is helpful and friendly. The students are fairly diligent. The hours are flexible in order to help students who work or are parents. Winfree tries to make sure that a diploma is out of no one's reach.

This is a brilliant school, my son was able to catch up quickly. He decided to stay at Winfree and graduate. I wish more schools were like this one, the school leadership is outstanding and I was really impressed with the teaching staff. If you are looking for an alternative to the hustle and bustle of a large ISD high school, give WInfree a go, you will not be disappointed.

I attended Irving High and didn't do that well. I had some friends attend WInfree and they said good things, so I gave it a try. I wish I could have started high school at WInfree. The teachers actually care and the Principal was a good guy, helped me out alot. I've been happy at Winfree and I would tell anyone to go there.

The school is a wonderful place for those students that are wanting to finish school at a faster pace and for those students that are slightly different. Excellent caring teachers and a great principal at the helm.

Winfree Academy allows students to learn in the style that best fits their individual learning style. There is a flexible schedule that can fit any student need. Winfree takes away all excuses and makes it difficult for a student not to be successful.

The Winfree Academy Charter School District is way ahead of the curve! For students who have not been successful in a traditional school setting, this format is a godsend! Self-paced curriculum allows work to be completed in a more timely manner, and the constant presence of instructors insures all the help needed is there.

WInfree Academy is a tax payer funded public high school. During the 2009-2010 academic year, the Irving campus achieved an 81% passing rate for the sum of all TAKS tests taken. The Irving campus graduated 81 students during the 2009-2010 acadmeic year, and these students received a TEA accredited Texas High School Diploma. Great things will continue to happen for the Irving campus in the 2010-2011 academic year. If you are interested in a change of pace and a great school full of wonderful and caring staff, then give Winfree Academy a try...you will not regret it!

I taught at this school for 6 years from 1999-2006. The classes were small and the students walk across the stage singing praises to this school of second chances.

the teachers are rude, and they do not help you unless you are on thier good side. they do not enforce school rules and do not set goals like that are supposed to.

The staff at Winfree Irving are very dedicated to giving students the support they need to graduate. The schools small enrollment size allows more one to one attention and whilst students work at their own pace during the 4 hour day they get whatever assistance they need form teachers. Winfree is a great place for students who don't like the normal Public school system and it's completely free to attend.

The Irving campus of this school is sub-standard. Administration is sorely lacking in effective communication skills and the level of professionalism is nonexistent. I would not recommend this campus to any parent who desires a quality education for their child. Corporate should really take a closer look.

My sister went to this school and it really helped her to graduate early and she loved the small work enviroment and loved that she could do self-passed work(this allowed her to get work done really fast)

Winfree Academy is a great school to attend for students are falling behind in credits. There are not any options as far as extracurricular activities, the sole focus for the school is to catch the students up on credits that were not received.
