Our Approach


The mission of the Winship Community School is to improve the academic achievement of children in Sutter County and adjacent counties. The mission will be accomplished through a virtual and project based curriculum model that emphasizes hands on and experiential learning, which focuses on meeting individual students’ needs, while helping them become proficient at the California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and California Content Standards (CCS), including Next Generation Science Standards for their grade level.
