    The former principal was a blockhead. The new guy is about twice as smart but way too touchy-feely. The big problem is that half of the students have been socially promoted to the high school even though they are still reading at the fourth-grade level. How many grammatical errors can you count in the student reviews?

    Though the teachers are cool and nice the discipline is not very good. It should be a lot harder on the students. There are those teachers who don't even give discipline at all and there are those who give it too much. There is no balance when there should be more of one.

    This is one of the greatest school in the whole world. I attended this school my freshman year and sadly had to move later. i will never forget my class mates and my teachers. Anyone who comes here will find it an instant classic.

    I am a student right now at windham high school and I think is a good school in the fact that theres so many opportunities I really have a great time there but the problem is that they are too strict they really need to treat us like joung adults in this school is where we will become mans and womans they should treat us like adults. I do understand that the principals are just triend to make the school a better place but they should ask our opinion not just make the rules this school will be a better school if they just ask us or lets us all vote for what we want not just make the rules.

    As a student at Windham High School during the 2004-2005 school year currently I feel that the school is starting to feel like a juvenile detention center. You can't even get a pass to the bathroom anymore and if you do leave without a pass you may be interrogated. The rules are implemented in such a way that the few that break the rules may be punished. However the majority of the high school must abide by strict rules that do nothing more than place unneccessary punishment on the school's students. It has been proven that if you are treated as a child you will act as a child. I want to know how it is helping the school if more people act like children.

    I was a student at Windham High School from 200-2004. Windham is a wonderful place. I had an amazing expericence there. Windham has a great amount of clubs activites and sports. It is so easy to find something you love or develop a new talent at Windham. Windham High teachers care they are always willing to help and the guidence counselors are amazing and are a great resource for planning your future. Be it college work or the military. I am so happy that I had the oppertunity to go to Windham I wouldn't trade my experience for anything.
