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.In addition to the New York City location, Winston Prep also has campuses in Norwalk, CT and Whippany, NJ.

I graduated from Winston and it was great for me. I learned to advocate for myself and what I needed for learning. The teachers were very supportive. I feel worried though because a friend of mine still at school told me that there are kids smoking weed in the gym and that is not good.

The HeadMaster, Deans, Teachers, and Support Staff are beyond amazing. My Child has been here 3 Years, and this School, and School Program has made 1000% difference in her life...
