We are running the NJ Half Marathon to give children with learning differences a place to learn differently in New Jersey! Winston Preparatory School is a private, not-for-profit school for children with learning disabilities. Winston’s unique model of education for the individual provides intense skill remediation, while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, and self-awareness. Key to the development of each student is the focus on assessment-based remediation, a daily one-to-one Focus Program, the skill-based curriculum, small homogenous class groupings, an expert faculty, an emphasis on social-emotional development, and a supportive community. Winston believes people don’t always learn in straight lines so we shouldn’t teach them without being expertly responsive and flexible.
Substantial progress in the process of working towards opening Winston Prep School in New Jersey has been made and we are getting close to making WPS a reality in our area. So please support our fundraising efforts in any way you can! Opening this school will be a tremendous asset to countless NJ children with learning disabilities who are struggling to find an academic setting in which to thrive, flourish, and be understood as individuals and learners. Thank you for your support!
If for any reason Winston Prep does not open in NJ, money raised will be given to WPS - NYC and WPS - CT.
