PREPARING YOUNG MINDS TO CHANGE THE WORLD. Far Hills inspires academic excellence and life skills such as resourcefulness, resilience, integrity, self-control, and a myriad of other invaluable traits that lay the foundation for lifelong success. We call that RIGOR.



Our students don’t just learn answers. They develop the courage to challenge those answers. They learn not only problem solving, but also gain the confidence to stand by their solutions. They don’t simply learn to play a musical composition, they develop the self-esteem to stand up and perform. This is the balance that defines Far Hills—and sets our students apart.



Accountability is key. Our students are not only measured by their academic performance, but also by their application of the character-defining skills that differentiate the Far Hills approach to education. We place equal emphasis on both, and accountability for both is the foundation of our community, culture, and code of honor.

Winston Preparatory School

www.winstonprep.edu

At Winston Preparatory School, we view each student as a unique individual learner who has potential and is Able to Learn. It is also important that our work is grounded in research regarding how people learn and the learning differences that cause students to struggle. We begin our understanding by looking through a neuropsychological lens based on decades of research on learning and cognition. This is just the first step. It is important that we understand both who our students are as learners, as well as who they are as people. WPS students have some notable gifts, and our individual approach allows us to explore and develop these gifts. Everything we do is based on this in-depth understanding of each individual student.

Winston Preparatory School is an innovative day school for students, grades 2-12, with learning differences such as dyslexia, nonverbal learning disabilities, and executive functioning difficulties. We do this through a process that understands each student, individualizes a program to meet their needs and that builds a powerful sense of community. We call this process the Continuous Feedback System. This system is designed to deeply understand each student's specific learning profile including their strengths and potential.

Come to an open house and learn more about our educational philosophy and tour our school.
