Educational programs at WPS center on facilitating the independence of students with learning difficulties through assessment-driven individualized education.
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.
Winston Online faculty hail from all over the country and hold many certifications and educational backgrounds. This includes reading specialists, special education instructors, learning specialists, speech and language pathologists, elementary, middle, and high school teachers. Our faculty carry out ongoing, in-depth assessments to cultivate a deep understanding of students, helping them to advance at a meaningful pace and giving them the tools to continue independently learning and growing. In addition, they provide intense skill remediation while fostering independence, resilience, responsibility, and self-awareness. An important part of our faculty’s job is to incorporate Winston Prep’s Continuous Feedback System (CFS) to gain a deeper understanding of our students, facilitating independence through continual assessment, remediation, and analysis of a student’s response to their individualized program. A key part of CFS is our teachers' focus on each student's ability to reflect, understand, and internalize the skills practiced each day. Along with their experiences, education, and certifications, Winston Online faculty engage in continued professional development throughout the school year. Many of our teachers have participated in the Winston 101 program facilitated by the Winston Innovation Lab, and many have participated in the Winston Teacher Excellence and Leadership Development Program.
