Mission Statement

 

The mission of the Winton Woods City School District is "Cultivating a World Class Education." The goals of the Winton Woods City School District are to: assure financial stability; improve academic achievement; and improve culture.
 
The mission of Winton Woods High School is to create a safe and nurturing learning environment where each student is able to learn and practice academic and social skills that will aid them in becoming productive and responsible citizens beyond high school.
 
 
At Winton Woods High School, success is the only option. Our goal is to develop productive citizens who have the skills to choose the direction they want for their lives beyond high school. With this "end in mind," we work to provide educational opportunities that meet and support the varied needs of our students.
The staff of Winton Woods High School sets high expectations in both academic and career/technical studies. We offer College Preparatory, Honors, and Advanced Placement programs and work to incorporate hands-on, relevant projects and problems to help students make connections between school experiences and real-world applications. In addition, we provide virtual learning and intervention programs to support those students who need remediation and/or extra help. Many students also participate in our Fine Arts program, which is among the best in the area, and extracurricular activities, which provide enriching social interactions.
 
Winton Woods High School has a guidance program that works with students and parents to guarantee that every student is actively involved in the most appropriate program. Counselors meet with students regularly to provide guidance and support. They work with staff members to maintain communication with the home to ensure that parents stay abreast of students' progress. The College and Transition Program advisor works with the counselors to connect each student with a future beyond high school and to help new enrollees experience a smooth transition to our school. Henry Edwards wrote, "We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open." At Winton Woods High School, we not only want our students to dream of their future but also have the skills to find their place in it.
