When is the school closed?

The school's calendar year runs from the day after Labor Day to the first week of June usually.

A list of selected holidays and professional days is provided at the beginning of the year with the Students Handbook and Directory.

Winchester is usually open for instruction for more than the minimum required days by Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS).

 

“I like learning [at Winchester] because there are nice teachers. My favorite class is science because it’s fun. Ms. Melissa (science teacher) made a volcano.”

~ Janet, former student

"Children desperately need to know - and to hear in ways they understand and remember - that they're loved and valued..."
