Attention Seniors: The deadline to take your senior portraits has been extended to September 30th.

You can book online at NelsonSanders.com or call the studio to schedule your session at 404-747-1273.
WBHS had been named an AP Humanities School (1 of 149 named in 2017) by Superintendent Richard Woods. AP Humanities Schools are schools with students testing in the following AP courses: at least one ELA course, two social science courses, one fine arts course and one world language course.
As previously discussed, the current tardy enforcement policy at Winder-Barrow High School was established to decrease the number of tardy incidents among our student body. As a faculty and staff, we at WBHS believe that students who are in class for the full instructional period are better equipped to achieve success than those whose time is limited due to repeated tardies. Due to the repetitiveness of the tardy issue by a some of our students, the tardy enforcement consequences are being extended to cover such student privileges as parking and Homecoming/Prom attendance. Please assist us with this process by continuing, in conjunction with our teachers and administrators, to remind your student(s) of the importance of being in class on time each and every day.
Thank you for your support as we continue with our mission of “improving minds, improving lives.”
