At WPS we view each student as a unique individual learner who has potential and is Able to Learn
. It is also important that our work is grounded in research regarding how people learn and the learning differences that cause students to struggle. We begin our understanding by looking through a neuropsychological lens based on decades of research on learning and cognition
. This is just the first step. It is important that we understand both who our students are as learners, as well as who they are as people
. WPS students have some notable gifts, and our individual approach allows us to explore and develop these gifts. Everything we do is based on this in-depth Understanding
of each individual student. Each photo above will take you to stories of WPS students who we can begin to understand through the terms dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties and nonverbal learning disorders.
Winston Preparatory School is an innovative day school for students in the 4th through 12th grade with learning differences such as dyslexia, nonverbal learning disabilities, and executive functioning difficulties. Our unique model of education for the individual provides intense skill remediation while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy. We do this through a process that understands each student, individualizes a program to meet their needs and continually refines this program based on individual progress, while building a powerful sense of community. We call this process the Continuous Feedback System
. This system is designed to deeply understand each student's specific learning profile, including their strengths and potential.
