Great school with a outstanding staff, their English teachers are the best in the state.
Very disappointed in the way they chose incoming students for the 2011-2012 school year. Because the school received grant money they took in less than par students. I already graduated one daughter thru the program and she had an great experience, but her sister was denied entry even though her grades and motivations are much stronger. The school was forced to take students that can't read well, have failing grades, and suspensions. I feel so sorry for the teachers, that will need to take the time to teach the basics and I feel sorry for the students that are being set up for failure. Most of the students that I know that were accepted don't want to go; their parents wrote the student letters and applications. Spring ISD was something awesome a few years ago; such a decline in the entire district now.
Carl wunsche senior high school is an amazing school. It's main focus is future careers and education, contains students that want to succeed. My son attended in his sophomore year coming from Westfield high school he sometimes complains that it's a school full of nerds and I think that's a good thing! As a parent I am very much involved in my children's school. And I personally believe that wunsche provides outstanding career paths that other high schools don't usually have. It is made up of 3 different towers. My son is in the medical tower Perfect teachers and great classes. a good head start for college. I am looking forward to sending my daughter this year. And yes I am carefully watching her and her grades in Westfield. If they're any teachers I dislike which has only happened once I can always change them. But the Medical tower I honestly think has the best instructors and teachers with much experience. Over all Carl Wunsche senior high school is made up of staff and students that care! and who doesn't want that?!
Carl Wunsche Senior High School stands as a model school for involving students fluently and deeply in their career interests and passions, but falls severly short in some critical aspects. One of the most detrimental aspects of this school is the emphasis this school places on technology integration with the class curriculum, which severely decreases the teacher interaction and explanation with the students about class assignments. Another critically negative aspect of Carl Wunsche Senior High School is the type of assignments teachers instruct their students to complete, many of which are scarcely related to the subject matter currently being taught in the classroom. These assignments only frustrate and deteriorate several devoted students' faith in the value of the material they are supposedly learning in the classroom. Overall, Carl Wunshce Senior High School offers diverse, indivudualized career-related activities, but doesn't have teachers that are deeply engaged with their students.
I attended Wunsche between 06-08 when the school was brand new and I would have to say it was a blessing to say the least. My home campus was Westfield and on numerous occasions feared for my life. At Wunsche things are completely different. Some teachers were new, others weren't as up-to-date on the teachnology as they needed to be, but at least we they taught us and they were given an environment that allowed them to teach, unlike Westfield. People are complaing about the tech guys but what yall don't understand is all day long they see over 100 students and most of them have an excuse like 'My laptop is broke because my brother stepped on it,' etc so yea they do need annoyed with excuses like that. Wunsche requires a more from its students, such as volunteering and doing an internship, but it prepares you for college.
This year Im a junior at Wunsche and I love it. Sure its just like other schools in a way. Though at the same time its alot better cause if you are really determined to be your best then this school will help you in anyway. Im not gonna say that all the teachers here are the best ever cause that would be a lie but if you cant learn in one class then well there is always another teacher that will be there help. And yeah we have many newer teachers but the thing is they are there to learn too and well if help you learn they will find someone else who can. I love this school not cause its the best ever but cause they find a way to help each student that needs it.
I am a student currently attending wunsche high school. My home campus is westfield, but ive been at wunsche 2 yrs. Overall the school is ok; it isnt as good as they would want you to believe. The teachers are mediocre, the laptops are below average and are just a drag. The only good thing i have to say about the school is the actual facility; its clean and new, but other than that it is like any other high school. Note: if you plan to play sports at you home campus get ready to miss A lot of instructional time.
It is a wonderful school, but highly over-glorified by the district. I've noticed that it seems as if national recognition is more important to the district than the true success of the students attending. But yes, this is a fine school for students looking for specified technical careers. However, I feel that Wunche just isn't for every Spring ISD student that is constantly bombarded with pressure to attend this academy.
I attend Carl Wunsche and believe that for the most part it is just a normal school. Many times the technology available in the school is not much more than a problem. Many teachers rely on teh laptops for their lesson plans so when the network is down, some classes are at a standstill. As far as teachers go, there is an even mix. There are alot of young teachers with no experience, old teachers with no social skills, and a few really talented teachers that have a passion for teaching. Overall, this school is just a change from Westfield, Spring, and Dekaney. Not better, not worse.
CWHS is a wonderful school. It is a professional place where most students have goals in their lives. It has a great environment for learning and it s very safe. There is a great level of maturity in most of the students.
I'm a senior (09) at Wunsche and I have to say that I really like it. My home campus is Westfield but I rarely go back there. The school is overcrowded not to mention the many times the teachers there have been on the news. I've read some of the bad reviews about Wunsche and honestly I feel they have no idea what they are talkin about. Maybe your GPA is going down because at Wunsche the course are more challenging. Laptops can have their flaws but isn't that the same with all technology. These laptops give us an advantage over students at college because we wont be tempted to be on myspace or facebook and do our work. I'm a student in the Medical Tower and all the things I've learned in my classes are helpful. Wunsche is a great school.
The school is a relief from the rest of the SISD schools. I'm a 11th grade student at Wunsche and my homecampus is Westfield. In comparison to Westfield the school is nice, but the classes are chaotic, most of the teachers don't know what to do or how to teach, the laptops don't work and our tech guys are so rude and don't offer you any help at all. This is a normal school, it's not special, the teachers are just as mediocre if not more, the technology doesn't make it any better, the staff is just as uninterested in our learning and more interested in how much money the school is going to make. Not to mention most of the people here are just plain rude.
The school has a lot to offer to those who know how to take advantage of it. Everything you need to succeed in your field is here, from guidance counselors to senior internships. CWHS is a great alternative school for students who already have a career goal in mind.
I graduated from this school and it is great. If grades go down is because you don't put your all to it. I loved this school i was in the medical tower it was great. Teachers are always trying to help and i feel like i did learn a lot.
This is a fantastic school. Students are given the opportunity to really experience the career field they are interested in. I feel that students get out of school what they put into it.
I would have to say that this is not a good school at all. At least not for the kids coming from Spring. I go to this school from Spring, where I had a 3.56 GPA,in the top 40% of the class. Now my GPA is down into the 2's. And my grades went from A's and B's to D's and C's. The teachers are fresh out of college and do not interact with the students. They don't evaluate the kids like they say they do. This year they just let anybody in. Not to mention the laptops just mess everything up. I really want to be a vet. But not if I have to go here. I don't see how any college would accept me with this GPA!
My son went here for the IT program and just loved the school, the teachers and classmates. Having come from Westfield he was excited to see such involvement and caring. My daughter now attends and is in the Medical Tower - she too feels the caring attitude and is much happier with teachers and the new school. She really gets upset if she sees someone 'abusing' the newness of it. So cudos SISD - I feel it is great for those students preparing for college - almost College prep-like! Good luck to all...Jan Dunn
The programs are challenging. The teachers really do care. The school is great.
