Welcome to Winthrop Public Schools

Winthrop Schools are working hard to make a difference.  Over the past couple of weeks, students have been raising money and bringing in non-perishable goods to support the local food pantry.  "Make a Difference Day" is on October 24.  Reaching our goal will help to alleviate hunger in and around Winthrop. 
We appreciate your help with our efforts as we work to Make a Difference in our community.
Congratulations to the Winthrop HS Golf Team, the winners of the 2014 
Class C State Championship Tournament!

Mission Statement:

The Winthrop Public School Communities’ mission is to create a solid foundation for students that allows them the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to achieve success in a global world.

  • Common Core Toolkit 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. We will post this link on our home page under the Resources section. http://www.parenttoolkit.com

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
