Who We Are

Located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, Winston Preparatory School New York is a highly-individualized  private day school for students through 12th grade with learning differences such as dyslexia, nonverbal learning disabilities (NVLD), and executive functioning difficulties (ADHD).

Our unique model of education provides intense skill remediation while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy. We deeply understand each student, individualize a program to meet their needs, and continually refine this program based on individual progress, while building a powerful sense of community.

    There really is no other school like Winston, where all the teachers and other students are so kind, understanding, and everyone is willing to help and be supportive of each other. Winston prep is like my second family. My life-changing experience at Winston has taught me that anything is possible.
