Principal's Message

I would like to welcome everyone to the Windham High School community.  WHS first opened its doors in 2009 and has continued to grow ever since.  Currently, we house approximately 1,000 students in grades 9 through 12 and offer a comprehensive education committed to excellence through hard work, high standards, personal responsibility, and dedication to others.  We are proud to offer a well-rounded, rigorous curriculum that provides ALL students with opportunities to challenge themselves, to grow, and to, ultimately, succeed.

As a school, WHS consistently ranks in the top-5 in New Hampshire in both AP and SAT scores, and we boast a 92% college acceptance rate.  Our AP program continues to grow and thrive – we were recently awarded the AP “Diversity Award” for the number of female students enrolled in AP Computer Science.  WHS also offers a plethora of academic pathways, from Global Leadership to STEAM to Concurrent / Dual enrollment where students can earn college credits and tuition reductions at specific colleges / universities, students not only have the opportunity to explore a variety of academic areas, but also to travel the world!  WHS has also begun a formal Chinese exchange program with Future Leadership Academy in Hainan Province, China.  Along with providing academic offerings in multiple disciplines, WHS is also focused on meeting the needs of ALL our learners.  Using the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), administration, faculty, and staff are constantly working to ensure that students are provided all the necessary tools and safety nets allowing for success.

Outside of the classroom, WHS offers a host of athletics, Fine Arts opportunities, and clubs.  The majority of our athletic teams have recently made the jump from Division II to Division I – this year our field hockey team earned the school’s first DI state championship and we also had one of our wrestlers earn the school’s first individual DI championship.  All our teams continue to represent WHS and the community with pride and integrity.  We also offer multiple opportunities in the Fine Arts Department.  Our Band, Chorus, a Capella, Jazz Band continue to compete throughout New Hampshire and beyond – they have also had the opportunity to travel internationally and will be traveling to Hawaii next year.  Our visual arts program also boasts multiple Scholastic Art Award winners and have been able to display their work throughout the state, including at the Statehouse.  WHS also offers a wide range of student-driven clubs, everything from a Cooking Club, to an E-sports Club, to Debate Club allow for all students to join or create a club focusing on their own interests and curiosities.

Overall, Windham High School continues to provide a first-rate education to all its students, along with, providing for opportunities well beyond the classroom.  As education continues to evolve, WHS is committed to evolving with it – providing students to display their knowledge, strengths, and talents through a variety of medium.  With strong support from all vested stakeholders, Windham High School and OUR students will continue to be leaders and role models through the school community and beyond.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school at (603) 845-1558.  Thank you.
