"WCSU will provide member districts with the leadership and resources to ensure a strong educational system for all students."

Welcome to Windham Elementary School!

The Windham Elementary School offers an inclusive, educational environment serving students in grades K-6. There are two classroom teachers; Sally Newton K-3, and Mickey Parker-Jennings, 4-6. Currently, we have 19 students enrolled K-6.  Mickey Parker-Jennings is the school principal and full time teacher.


The school’s academic programs are closely aligned with Vermont’s Framework of Standards, the Common Core State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. These programs are supported by numerous activities and learning opportunities. In addition, the multi-age groupings provide frequent occasions to learn from peers, both older and younger. The small student body allows for more personal attention and academic support for the students.


 As a school community, we strive to create an atmosphere which encourages acceptance, respect, and caring, while teaching students to become responsible citizens in today’s world.
