School Notes

  • At Winchendon, we believe learning should be about applying knowledge, not just absorbing it. Winchendon`s curriculum is diverse and immersive.  In addition, we incorporate beyond-the-classroom learning in classes and particularly in ColLABs and seek to develop our students` character through our school-wide Service Learning program and our Great 8 Character Attributes (CARE). Students become life-long learners as a result of the encouragement they are given to explore new opportunities and delve deeply into subjects that interest them.
