At Winchell Elementary School, our vision is for a learning environment that prepares every student to be
well-equipped to successfully access higher education.
All students must leave Winchell Elementary School at or above grade level in the core content areas of
reading, writing,mathematics, science and social studies and be prepared to use their education to be productive citizens. Our
priorities include: A focus on the student as an individual, an atmosphere of emotional and physical safety;
achievement at the highest levels; self-confidence and self-esteem; strong character; and active participation in
the community. Through our collaboration with families and our greater community, we strive to create a
powerful, flexible and innovative culture of learning.
