"Many students, many of whom previously struggled socially and academically at other schools, will say Winston’s learning community made all the difference for their personal and academic success,” Headmaster Mike Peterson.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
To celebrate 25 years educating San Diego’s uniquely talented and learning-challenged youth, The Winston School in Del Mar is hosting a 25th anniversary dinner at the Del Mar Fairgrounds April 20, 2013. All Winston students past and present, their families, teachers past and present, friends and supporters, are invited.
Since opening its doors in 1988, the school has educated thousands of students with mild to moderate learning challenges including autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADD, ADHD, specific learning disabilities or learning disorders, nonverbal learning disorders and slow maturation.
Bolstered by the school’s student to teacher ratio allowing for extensive one-on-one instruction, students have benefited from this private school’s teaching philosophy, captured well in its motto from the Winston Churchill quote “Never, never, never give up.” Headmaster Mike Peterson said the dedicated staff infuses the motto into all aspects of Winston’s daily experience, making the school feel like a big supportive family. “Our 25th anniversary is very similar to a family reunion in many ways as those involved with Winston for the last 25 years are part of a uniquely bonded family.
“From the teachers and administrators who every day re-define what it means to teach students with learning differences; to the parents who participate in and witness their child’s transformation; to the hundreds of students who may have for the first time in an educational setting felt understood and capable of success – the collective group would agree that Winston is a life-changer.
“Parents will tell you that the school’s warm and encouraging environment along with the individual attention has created a home away from home that benefited their child in ways they couldn’t have imagined. Many students many of whom previously struggled socially and academically at other schools will say Winston’s learning community made all the difference for their personal and academic success.”
Founded by visionary parents and pediatricians who sought to create a place where students who learned differently could find academic success, The Winston School has been steadily growing in reputation and enrollment.

ABOUT THE WINSTON SCHOOL
The Winston School is a college preparatory program which offers hope and success for children with learning differences in grades 4 through 12. A group of pediatricians and parents in San Diego founded the school in 1988 for bright children whose needs were not being met in traditional school settings. The school is the only college preparatory school in San Diego County that provides education to an equal mix of privately enrolled and publicly funded students placed by the school district. Students such as those struggling with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADD, ADHD, specific learning disabilities or learning disorders, nonverbal learning disorders and slow maturation find what they need in the school’s small, safe and caring environment. By incorporating small classes, multi-sensory teaching methods and individual attention, the school’s faculty works together to help students fulfill their academic, physical, artistic, social and emotional potential. Since opening in 1988, The Winston School has educated nearly a thousand students, preparing them for college and for the working world. The Winston School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The school is located at 215 Ninth St., Del Mar, Calif., 92014.
