Our Motto is “Excellence Through Education”

Humphrey & Winsted Elementary

With two elementary schools to serve our three communities, we set out to establish a solid foundation of core academic instruction.   Keeping class sizes low and supplementing with support staff including many paraprofessionals, a social worker and a counselor, both Humphrey and Winsted Elementary have created a positive, enriching experience for all our students and families.

Much of what we do as elementary schools is established through strong connections made between staff and students.  Our staff members really get to know each and every child, and through the use of Love and Logic, we make sure that there are adults who look out for the needs of everyone.

Our schools were remodeled and additions were made to both facilities in 2007.  Our student population at both schools continues to grow not only in numbers, but in excitement about all the possibilities our schools make into a reality. Winsted Elementary is currently under a building project addition, adding a dedicated gymnasium space for classroom use, as well as a larger music area and updated commons area.

Winners of the United States Department of Education’s National Blue Ribbon (Humphrey 2012 & Winsted 2013), our elementary schools are top notch!
