Company Description

The Windward School is an independent, co-ed day school focused exclusively on helping students in grades 1-9 with language-based learning disabilities. The School has three campuses: two in White Plains, NY, and one in New York City on the Upper East Side.

Our philosophy is simple: we believe all children can succeed academically. The key to their success is language competency, which we believe is central to all aspects of academic, social, and emotional growth. Language proficiency means much more than basic reading and writing skills. It is also about understanding and following directions, organizing information, building general knowledge, solving problems, expressing ideas, making friends, assuming responsibility, and assessing social interactions and behaving appropriately.

Windward students are children of average or above average intelligence who have not been able to achieve language competency in traditional classroom settings. At Windward, a specially trained staff and a consistently applied instructional approach help students close the gap between their intellectual potential and academic performance.
