Winston Prep is a great school for students who learn differently. Before I went here, my language wasn't a success. Therefore, my self-advocacy was lacking. Then, I met with a 1-on-1 "focus teacher" who truthfully told me that I needed to work on a few skills in order to succeed and they will believe in you. Also, the academic support is excellent and students there graduate with a diploma. Every teacher here cares about you no matter who you are. One thing to watch out for is classroom behavior. Sometimes I have to deal with class moving at a slower pace because it will help the others out. If that ever happens, every student should feel free to talk to a teacher; it really helps. Now I feel more confident about college, thanks to Winston Prep.
For Children that Learn Differently, Winston Prep is a Great fit. The Educators are far more than just "teacher's", they are a group of caring individuals who care more about the student than about the "job".
The school is warm and welcome to all families and students. I can't imagine working somewhere with a more passionate group of teachers, who are continually thoughtful and diagnostic of each student's learning needs.
My son Kevin is 11 years old and is attending to Winston Prep since September 2013. This school addresses all my son needs. My son is improving in few months I can notice there is a big difference from September to now. My son has dyslexia, his weakness is reading and writing for any other families that are having same problems with their children. I recommend this school, the class size are small and also each child receive an individual lesson to address their disability . Winston Prep it's a great school.
The lack of communication at the school is profound. While my son struggled and struggled, they continually let me know too late that he was not doing well. A big disaster.
I agree with the Parent that believes the School doesn't need negative, unprofessional, disrespectful remarks against Dean Wm D; however as with everything, there is a back story. I can only rely on my experience and the right in this forum to comment. You are entitled to your comments as well. As the satisified Parent you are, I respect your statements & I am honestly not focused on whether you respect mine...
My son went there several years ago and it was a major disaster. I felt that he was mistreated and wrongly evaluated and it took them two years to get things right but it was too late. I feel that there is a reverse prejudice in place The headmaster is so sure that he is correct that he refuses to hear any alternative opinions
I can really see the differents in my daughters outlook with her school work. She is appling herself more than ever. I really believe that this is an excellent school enviroment for her. Thank you
Because I can see the type of students it produces, some of the best in the world. Well rounded and balanced!!
If you child is high functioning with high IQ and has a learning disability this is an amazing school. The class sizes are very small and they group the kids by issues and ability rather than by grade. The down side of this is that if you child is on the younger spectrum and in a class of student 1-2 years older they are exposed to and have to deal with certain social issues they may not be ready for. The school academics seem to be challenging and the attention they give to each child is amazing. They also have something called Focus, which is on on one time with a focus teacher each day to help the student with what ever specific issues they need to work on. There is no other LD school that offers this.
