  • Greetings and Welcome to Winchester Public Schools!


    Winchester Public Schools is a fantastic school division and we are proud of our work as we serve every child, every day, doing whatever it takes. The rich diversity that makes up the Winchester division is truly our strength as one community comes together for one purpose – Learning For All.

    I want to start by celebrating the hard work of our staff and students over the past year. Through the dedicated effort of our staff and students, the Winchester Public Schools continues to deliver a high quality education for all students.

    In the 2021 - 2022 school year, I look forward to continuing the good work with our community, staff and students to ensure that every student is able to pursue all of their hopes and dreams in life. Our work is more than academic preparation, and I am excited to work with our staff to promote the aspirational aspects of student learning so that our students' dreams are nurtured and stretched beyond their imaginations. Our Empower 2025 strategic plan will be our driving force in unleashing the potential of our students, staff and families.

    In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, I am confident that our teachers, administrators and staff will continue to deliver a high quality education for every student. Last year, we were one of only a few school divisions in Virginia to attend school in-person, while executing all the safety protocols recommended by the CDC. I am proud of our approach and our dedication to our students and we will do the same thing this year - maximize learning AND safety!

    As you explore our school division, I believe you’ll find that we embrace innovative ideas and that we are kid focused. I am very proud of the accomplishments of the Winchester Public Schools and we look forward to partnering with you to develop great young people and future adults!
