GEAR UP at Winthrop High School

Winthrop Public School system is both honored and fortunate to have received a GearUp Federal grant to help students who need support making their dreams of post-secondary education realities. 

A team of teachers, parents, administrators, students and guidance counselors are working to bring programs, support and experiences to our students who need extra help to achieve their educational goals.  The team is working to help all students succeed.
