Say the right thing,

Do the right thing,

Make the right thing happen!

SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY


The overall purpose of John Winthrop School is to assist all students in the development of their minds and the acquisition of knowledge.  All children are capable of learning, even though not necessarily on the same day and the same time.  We must strive to provide a variety of learning techniques and experiences wherein students can succeed.  An orderly learning environment should be created and maintained by the establishment of consistent expectations for all.


As educators, we are able to provide an opportunity for our students to achieve their best level of competence in the mastery of subject matter.  We must also provide experiences and activities, which will enhance the development of physical fitness and good health habits.  It is equally important that our students develop an appreciation for the arts, a respect and understanding and a sense of patriotism for
our country .


SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT


Winthrop's mission is to provide an interdisciplinary approach to education in which all students can develop their social, creative and academic potential emphasizing higher expectations for excellence while building self-esteem and recognizing diversity.  With the support and involvement of parents, staff and community we will continue to provide a safe and secure learning environment.
