Four Winds allow students to thrive in a way larger academic programs could only dream of. The "bi-weekly goals" model allows students to work at their own pace while gaining skills in time management that most students don't gain until college. This model also allows gifted students to accelerate as fast as they'd like, while simultaneously supporting students who struggle academically by moving at a pace that doesn't overwhelm them and lets them feel accomplished, whereas other pedagogical models can hinder their confidence. This is a school that feels academically enriching and emotionally safe for all students.

This school is the best! It is small enough that you constantly get one on one time with the teacher, you go at your own pace for most of your work, everyone is really supportive, and there is no bullying. It is like one big family, mainly because it is such a tight nit community.
