School Notes

  • Since 1926, a Winchendon School education has been deeply personalized and highly collaborative, driven by student interests. Our students become graduates who are confident, adaptable, and self-directed learners.
  • The Winchendon School is built to put students at the forefront of updated teaching and learning. We`re designed to keep students engaged in their learning with exciting and energetic classes where students lead discussions, debate questions, and draw their own conclusions. 
  • Recent graduates have capitalized on the work begun here by appearing on Shark Tank, being named a Fulbright Scholar, being named Hasbro's first TikTok officer, and over 50 athletes in the past few years have gone on to play their sport in college.

I graduate from The Winchendon School in 2017 and I still miss it! The Winch helped me reach my full potential as a student and as a well rounded person. I was able to get accepted into Boston College because of the academic success I had during my time at Winchendon and the incredible array of opportunities and resources available to me. I was able to travel to Nicaragua, Haiti, Paris, Canada, participate in the Service Learning Program, play three varsity sports and participate in two ColLAB experiences during my time at Winchendon. I also met some of the most diverse people from counties all over the world and was able to exchange perspectives and cultures.

Our children were given more opportunities and were taught how to learn smarter, thereby opening up more college possibilities. They would not be in their highly selective colleges now if they hadn't gone to The Winchendon School.

My son loved this school, he graduated May of 2017 after getting into his dream college as a Computer Engineering major. The Robotics team, Model UN, and theater programs all helped him gain confidence and the skills needed for entry into a competitive college. Thank you, Winch!
