Important dates for the 2012-2013 academic year. This calendar may differ from the Hillsborough County Public School System's calendar.
What kind of programs & services will be available?
- Personalized Learning Plans – Assessments are performed periodically to determine how your child will learn best. Learning styles are established to tailor lesson plans to meet the needs of each student.
- Access to Charter Schools USA's Student Information System (SIS) – Parents are given access to their children's personal information through a password-protected computer-based system that allows them to monitor their progress. Parents can monitor test scores, homework and attendance on a daily basis.
- Parent Involvement – We know that children enjoy greater success in school when the adults they admire most take an interest in their education. Our students' parents are required to commit to volunteer hours each year for the school. These hours foster closer relationships and ensure a more secure learning environment.
- Uniforms – A school uniform policy is enforced. School uniforms must be purchased exclusively from a Winthrop Charter School approved vendor only. School uniforms instill a sense of pride in the school as well as each child's individual appearance. Uniforms allow students to focus on their education instead of designer labels and fashion trends.
Who is eligible to attend?
Winthrop Charter School is open to K-8 school aged students who reside in Hillsborough county.
