GFW Schools is an independent public school district in south central Minnesota. Originally formed to serve the communities of Gibbon, Fairfax and Winthrop, the district has expanded over time to encompasses large portions of other surrounding communities, including:
- Lafayette: GFW sponsors the Lafayette Charter School.
- Brownton and Stewart: GFW absorbed much of the former McLeod County West school district.
The district consists of three schools (one in each of the original three communities):
- GFW Elementary School (also the district office) - K-4
- GFW Middle School - 5–8
- GFW High School - 9–12
The district's school board consists of six members (two from each of the three communities). The term of office is four years.
Interactive Cable TV (ICTV) System
Launched in 2010, the iPad Initiative made GFW one of the first schools in the nation to provide all of its high school students with iPads. Because of this, it became known as a pioneer in making the switch from physical textbooks to electronic textbooks, and consequently gained local and national press coverage.
