Profile: At the Winchester School, we are dedicated to preparing our students to embrace the life-long path of learning in a safe and loving environment, which is an extension of their own families of origin. We offer children an environment where they can feel safe, respected, and loved and in which they acquire the skills, knowledge, values, and traditions that will help them grow into successful adults.

Since 1970, our school has been a special place where a child can step outside of his family to experience the companionship of other children, the nurturing of teachers, and the excitement of expanding his world through learning. We are proud to start the life-long path of learning hand in hand with our young children along-side their families and lay the foundation of their successful futures.

At the Winchester School, we have developed our academic program with five priorities in mind: (1) intellectual development, (2) social development, (3) emotional development, (4) physical development, and (5) spiritual, moral, and ethical development. Our responsibilities lie in using the wisdom of our experience in exerting our very best creative effort to reach each child as he comes to us and help guide him toward his potential.
