This year my son graduated the Windsor School where he was a student since the 7th grade! We were fortunate to find this school because it is different from other schools in most advantageous ways. The school is safe, clean and well maintained. Each student gets personal attention from a teacher because of the small class sizes. The teachers are professional and dedicated to their work. The principal and administrative staff are very attentive and responsive to the students and parents alike. As a parent, I am very pleased with our experience with the Windsor School and would recommend this institution to all who wants a good education and appropriate environment.

My experience with my child going to this school has been amazing. To see my child looking forward to going to school learning and eager to hand in assignments on time. To be able to really learn and focus on her most challenging subject in math. Not only the teachers are amazing, great principal and guidance counselor and staff. School is so clean. I couldn't be happier with this great opportunity that this school has given my daughter to attend at Windsor, I would tell anyone that is willing to learn and respect and willing to learn this is the school. Thank you to all staff.

Windsor school is a small but cozy family like. Its smaller size class enables an individual student to get more attentions and interactions with teachers. "You don't have a second to be distracted in the class......", my son told me. The principal teachers and staffs are all very kind and always ready to help. Students are respected and cared about. My son has become more confident than before and has made some academic improvements during the study in Windsor school. This is a nice school that really suits us.

Excellent school for students who wish to achieve their goals. Everyone from the Principal to the teachers and the administrative staff is very helpful. I am happy my child attended the Geometry during the summer of 2019 and thankful to each one there for making it a success.

We wanted to accelerate in Algebra 1 and we had a very good experience doing it from Windsor school. It is a very organized top-notch school and since we were coming from Long Island, it`s close vicinity to LIRR helped a lot and made things easy!
