GFW Public Schools

The communities of Gibbon, Fairfax, and Winthrop began sharing educational resources in 1987 and established the GFW School District in 1992. Still remembering the proud heritage of America's heartland, the GFW Schools are renowned for extraordinary educational programs, unequaled by schools of any size.

GFW is recognized as a regional model for community-based education. Site-based teams of parents, students, community members, and staff are charged with decision-making at each school. The K-4 Elementary School is located in Gibbon, the 5-8 Middle School at Fairfax, and the 9-12 High School in Winthrop.
