Curriculum

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.Key to the success of WPS’s educational programs is the implementation of the Continuous Feedback System by all community members, which ensures that educational programs are developed around the needs of the students and are flexible and fluid.

The typical WPSNY student has 42 minutes of instruction in Writing, Literature, History and Focus, and 60 minutes of instruction in Math, Science, Art and PE. In addition to the core classes, students may choose to participate in an array of after school enrichment activities including athletics, drama, tutoring and clubs, as well as become a member of the student leadership team, attend experiential education activities, and/or participate in community service opportunities.
