School Notes:

  • Educational programs at WPS center on facilitating the independence of students with learning difficulties through assessment driven individualized education. To achieve this mission, Winston’s curriculum focuses on skill-based learning with an underlying emphasis on social-emotional growth.  Small classes of 8-12 students help to create a comfortable learning environment and facilitate the individualization of course work. At the high school level, students with appropriate levels of skill mastery may participate in college courses. Ninety percent of graduates in the last five years have been accepted to college.

    Winston Prep has a campus in Norwalk, CT in addition to the New York City location.
