A MESSAGE FROM:

Windsor High School

2023-2024

WHS is Weld RE-4's flagship school and a cornerstone of our community. We are about making good things happen for other people. The goal is to make WHS the premier high school in CO academically, athletically, artistically, socially, and spiritually. We are developing a collective course of action through our H3 ? Head, Heart, Habits Strategic Plan in alignment with the Weld RE-4 Strategic Plan. The strength of any school is in direct proportion to the strength of the adult relationships. Princi pal Dodd is creating the conditions necessary for our staffulty to deliver excellent and equitable learning experiences and outcomes for ALL our kids through high expectations with high support. It's our professional responsibility, it's our moral imperative, it's THE WINDSOR DIFFERENCE! This is intentional, hard work, but more importantly it's heart work. We won?t leave a child's education to chance. All means all, not most or some. Student success is not a matter of luck. You don?t stumble upon profound knowledge or just happen upon creativity or innovation. We actively pursue information, skills, and solutions that work. To create better results, we have to take better, more intentional actions, and that's what we?re doing. We are not a collection of individuals going it alone, WE ARE 1 town, 1 school, and 1 F-A-M-I-L-Y (Forget-About-Me-I-Love-You). The quality that sets WHS apart from the average high school is the level of dedication to our collective mission ? teaching and caring for every Wizard, while lifting the levels of those around us.
