Secondary education at Windsor Unified School District starts with Windsor Middle School. The sprawling WMS campus houses state-of-the-art culinary and science classrooms, as the basis for many of the unique elective offerings available to students, as well as a school garden, sports fields, music classrooms and more. WMS is where students can explore their interests and prepare for the years ahead. Learn more about WMS here.
Our bilingual Spanish-immersion charter school Cali Calmécac also offers 6th through 8th grade, however, students in those grades will have been at Cali Calmécac from the early years. Cali generally does not accept students after 3rd grade.
From WMS or Cali, students then have two choices in front of them. The first is Windsor High School, featuring the unique core system, which allows students to explore interests and be a part of a small learning community, despite WHS’ size. WHS offers extensive Career-Techinical Education (CTE) opportunities, including multiple academies that allow graduates to step into the career of their choice as well as honors academics tracks that can provide a pathway into the nations top universities. WHS also has a unique partnership with Sonoma State University, which offers guaranteed admission to WHS graduates who meet certain parameters. Whether your student is interested in a construction, the arts, college or culinary, WHS has a pathway to help their dreams come true. Learn more about WHS here.
The second option is the award-winning North Bay Met Academy, a Big Picture Learning school. NBMA offers a unique program, with “Learning Through Interests” and “Leaving To Learn.” This program is exceptional for students for whom traditional pathways aren’t a good fit, or for those students who have a clear vision for their future.
