The school has undergone transition in leadership and have worked very hard to keep standards in learning and extracurricular activities throughout the year. Their strength is in preschool and elementary and they make every effort to fit needs of every child. They need to stress more on academics to attract more students in elementary and middle schools. The school tries hard to keep it financially affordable to all families but needs parents to do their part too.

This is our son's second year at Winchester Academy and we could not be more impressed with the level of education he is receiving. When speaking with friends who have children the same age and older, our son is successfully doing work that isn't even introduced in the public schools for another year or two. We've never had any issues with the school regarding discipline, and the teachers are always available and in constant contact via email or in person at the school with parents. He and our younger son will both definitely be continuing at Winchester Academy.

The school Winchester Academy in our opinion has a horrible experience for our child. The Academy's reactions and punishment for behavior were uncalled for. How can anyone feel justified in with holdings food from a child. It was for these, and other reasons discussed that we felt it necessary to withdraw our child from Winchester Academy.

We could not be happier with selecting Winchester Academy for our daughter. She is enjoying school and the opportunities the school provides for her to learn and lead are wonderful. The individual attention, smaller classes and educational materials, in our opinion, have made a huge difference in the quality education our daughter is getting and it shows.

This school is great! My son loves it and he is learning a lot. I like that they have a camp program - it made the school year easier to adjust for him. The teachers are very nurturing, but do enforce rules.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
