    Winter Park is a great school for academics..I have had one graduate and one now in tenth grade. My only reservations are the overtones of the elite and money. Lets face it a lot of the families there have money and their children don't hesitate to flaunt it and exclude those who are a little more middle class. There's also a lot of children of parents who graduated there who have a snooty, arrogant air passed down from the parents who act no better at times!

    It has the best principal who attends all the after school events and shows that he cares about his students.

    Winter park is a great school but when it comes to the Principal he is not good. In other schools I see the principals interacting with the student but he does not do that. When a student gets in trouble they go to the dean they should at least go to Mr. gordons office too. but this is a great school

    Winter Park High School is one of the greatest High Schools. All of the teachers and staff go out of their way to help the students no matter what the situation may be, they always find a solution.

    I have a 10th grader at WPHS and my two oldest graduated in 2007 and 2000. The band program is the best I have seen. Principal Gordon really cares about his students and makes each one feel important.

    Both of my sons went to Winter Park HS. One just graduated from Duke and the other attends UCF.I also mentored a young lady who will be attending UF in the fall. I can not say enough good about WPHS, it's staff,teachers and principle.It has been a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to every parent in Orange County. Thank you for 8 great years Winter Park!

    My daughter is a graduate from Winter Park class of 2006. For the most part her school career at WPHS was wonderful. She was very involved in the rowing program at Winter Park which is second to none in the State. As far as parental involvement, it seems the PTA needs to realize that parents want to be involved in their children's school but we work for a living and can't always be there at noon for the PTA meetings. A little effort to accommodate the working class parent would be helpful. Overall though excellent experience!

    Aside from outstanding extracurricular activities, the education one receives from Winter Park High School is no where near superb. The IB program is challenging, but only because there is little to no teacher involvement. (Although there are few exceptions- Mr. Bertossa is a phenomenal teacher). Lunch is extremely disorganized, and it seems the administration is often oblivious to what goes on behind the students' 'angelic' facades.

    I am a graduate of Winter Park High, class of 1991 and am proud of the education I received. Because of the IB diploma, I was able to go to FSU on full scholarship and received enough credit hours to enter as a sophomore. I've since gone on to earn two master's degrees. I owe all my success to the foundation and love of learning that Winter Park provided. Most all my teachers had advanced degrees (Master's and Doctoral) and challenged students not only to think of the whys and what ifs, but also how the subject matter relates with the current world environment and interrelates with other subjects. Extracirricular activities are plentiful at WPHS. Although I remember one individual upset that WPHS didn't offer an ROTC program. We did have plenty of others and students were encouraged to have a well-rounded educational experience.

    Winter Park is still an 'A' rated school. Though they were given a 'B' for the 2006, their stats on the scoring all around as well as the teacher's credintial will still show that they are 'A' school... especially the IB program. Go Wildcats!
