  • Common Core Toolkit Available Gary Rosenthal: I wanted to share this new Parent Toolkit with our school community. It has a  good Health and Wellness section which highlights growth and nutrition guidelines; in addition, by grade level --  K-12, the curriculum section outlines a listing of the Common Core standards in Math and English as well as what parents can do at each grade level to understand the curriculum and support their students.

Newsweek's 2014 Top HS List
It is with a great deal of pleasure and excitement that I am able to announce that Winthrop High School has been named by Newsweek Magazine as one of America's Top High Schools for 2014. 

This is a terrific honor for Principal Morin, his staff, as well as for the staff members of the Grade School and Middle School, all of whom had a strong hand in the preparation process of the students at our high school. 

This is the second recognition for the high school, having been named one of America's Best High 
                                                       Schools in 2012 by US News and World Report.  
                                                 --Mr. Gary Rosenthal, Winthrop Schools Superintendent
