Winslow High School Ratings & Reviews
Winslow High School is far from what is used to be! I find the staff very biased towards some parents and students. It's who you know in this very small town. I have also noticed that some teacher's are out the door as soon as the bell rings! What about our child's education? I feel there has to be a better system in helping our children achieve and succeed! The standards are too high in the grading system for Science and Math!! This is setting the kids up for failure. I know for a fact that other surrounding high school's do not have a high grading system in these areas! Some students may not understand the work and need to get he extra help, but it seems the teachers are always in a hurry to leave. Is this why they added an intervention class at the school? So the kids can make up their work and re-take tests? But in reality, this class does not give enough time for the students! What if the student wants to take their time and do well, instead of rushing through their work! I think teachers being available to students after school is the best way possible to help our children! Also, what happened to the dress code? I see many students violating this policy! Concerned Parent!
I recently graduated from winslow high school in 2008. I found from my four years there that about 75% of the teaching staff is really ineffective at teaching their lesson plans and just go straight from the book. Most of the staff including the the office staff is very prejudgemental and biasedly doing their duties. The athletic program is great but could be improved if athletes weren't given certain immunities compared to other students of the high school. Even at that only the gifted athletes receive the good side of the select biased coaching techniques. Parent involvement could be a lot better if the majority of the student body were treated equal. Safety and discipline are stressed a lot and that's good but sometimes I've seen students be disciplined for the staff's misunderstanding and judgemental outlook on that particular student, often singling them out for lack of patience.
I attended Winslow High School many years ago and found it to have insufficient resources to prepare its students for four-year university studies, as the focus is on getting students graduation. There are quite a few teachers who are interested in saving failing students, which can be a positive thing. However, the curriculum was rigidly set with no leeway to challenge bright students. Unfortunately, the school suffers from a disastrous lack of funding, disgruntled teachers and petty politics throughout. But what else can you expect with such a close-knit, yet isolated community? On the plus side, it is hard to go through the four years completely unnoticed. The school staff often have the best of intentions, but I would never send my children to this school.
As an alumni of Winslow High school, I can honestly say that my experience at Winslow High School was one to remember. During this time, in my developmental stages, I was positively influenced by my teachers and peers. FYI: It is not only up to the school to influence teenagers to study and achieve good grades, but also the community; which includes (#1) the students, parents, grandparents, faculty & administration, etc. Everyone must be involved during the developmental stages of a teenagers life, which includes setting achievable goals, and praising those achievements. Winslow,AZ maybe a small town (with many abnormalities), but families should also be held responsible for how well his or her child learns, studies and grows as a person.
