What is the school's teaching philosophy?

Winchester School strives to create a learning environment in which each child feels safe, respected, and loved; a learning environment in which each child is encouraged and helped to begin the life-long process of learning skills, values, and traditions.

For a more extensive illustration of our teaching philosophy please refer to:

I love The Winchester School because...

"the Winchester staff gives my child exactly what she needs instead of expecting her to fit into some pre-conceived plan. She loves Winchester because she will get to be Miss Tiffany's helper at the book fair this year." ~ Sarah R.,  Mom of Sadie 2nd grader

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself."

~   John Dewey
