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.
This school is wonderful! The teachers really do care and the Principal is very easy to work with and is very good. I fully recommend this school to anyone, this school probably saved my son's academic life!!!
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.
