I only wish we had found Winston sooner. My daughter hated school and was starting to have difficulties with peers and teachers. We were lucky enough to get in the last month of 3rd grade. With school being a month away, she has talked about how excited she is to be starting the 4th grade, all Summer long. She is very artistic and creative and I could not think of a better environment for her to be in. In the short time we were there, she blossomed. She had friends and was surrounded by teachers and staff alike that truly care about the students. As a parent, I smiled from the moment she was accepted. Ok, I cried to be honest. Her life changed that day. I cannot wait for school to start. Not just because it is school starting and life begins to become organized a bit. But because she smiles so brightly now. She-no WE, are a part of "The Winston Family". Best decision I could have made in helping my daughter to thrive, succeed and understand what being in a great school means.
