In small town everyone knows everyone and people feel safe and free to also be themselves. Even though their aren't many job opportunties or stores to shop at or apply too, everyone is happy and healthy. Most of your next door neighbors are your family or relatives to you.

I go to school in Winthrop, but I do not live in Winthrop. This is the only school I ever went to so I do not have much outside information. I like it for the most part since it is small. The school is friendly with good teachers.
