Windrush School is committed to nudging every child's mind, while
nurturing their hearts, bodies and spirits. Windrush students
develop mastery of academic and intellectual skills along with a
sense of who they are as learners and individuals. A Windrush
education enables graduates to navigate educational, community and
life experiences with determination, optimism, humor and grace.
Windrush students approach learning opportunities and challenges
with confident, enthusiastic spirits and open minds. They master
subject matter and utilize knowledge critically and creatively.
Windrush students are thoughtful, joyful and introspective. They
have integrity as well as a sense of purpose and responsibility.
Windrush students develop a moral compass and persevere in the face
of adversity. Windrush students desire meaningful relationships
with people of diverse experiences, backgrounds, perspectives,
values and beliefs. They have respect for themselves and others, as
well as a sense of compassion for and connection with their
community, humanity and the world. Our Mission Windrush School
serves students and families by providing an excellent education
grounded in Progressive Principles. The Windrush School K-8 program
provides outstanding academics while cultivating identity through
an emphasis on social, emotional and physical health. A Windrush
School education enables students to meet the future with
confidence, competence, resilience and grace. Enrollment has
increased steadily since its early years, and Windrush has expanded
by constructing a LEED-certified building, which houses the K-8
Library and Middle School. The first of its kind in El Cerrito, the
building reflects a fundamental Windrush principle-respect and
responsibility for self, others and the world.
