What is your favorite Winch event? Any all-school event that showcases how special our kids- and faculty-are. Athletic events, plays/theatre, and especially ColLAB Symposium.
Which Winchendon class or ColLAB would you most like to take? History with Mrs. Pellegrini! She is such a dynamic educator and relates the material to current events and everyday life. She makes learning relevant and fun!
On the bucket list? Going to Spain!
Best part about being at Winch? A strong sense of community. The students are some of the best we have ever worked with; the same is said for the faculty. We really enjoy being a part of The Winch!
