Why Enroll at Winston?

Life-Changing Reasons to Consider Winston:

  • You think your child’s school focuses more on what he can’t do than what he can
  • You’re fighting with your child at home over getting homework done
  • Problems at school are becoming problems at home
  • The environment in your school allows for teasing and bullying
  • Your child is falling behind
  • Your school or your child’s teacher seems to be losing hope
  • High school graduation seems a fading dream

Winston changed my son’s life and future. This is the fourth school he has attended and none of the others could meet his unique challenges and needs.
