    I like Windermere Prep because it truly helps prepare you for college with all of the International Baccalaureate courses available to students, as well as challenging honors and AP courses that students can take to prepare for the challenges of IB. The school has great diversity and many ways to get involved, whether that be clubs, the arts, or athletics, so there is always something to do and be a part of. The teachers, administration, and counselors are absolutely terrific. I seriously cannot stress how amazing the counselors are for doing so much when it comes to college readiness, beginning from the first day of your freshman year until the end of your senior year and beyond. I definitely recommend the school to anyone wishing to challenge themselves and looking for a brighter future!

    I have 2 children at Windermere Preparatory School in the Lower School grades. We have been here for 4 years and absolutely love the welcoming family that this school truly is. From the Headmaster, through the Administrative team, to the teachers down to the students and families - this school is one of the greatest communities we've ever been a part of. The school truly cares about my children as individuals. Their teachers have planned their curriculum around each of my child's strengths and weaknesses to give them the best possible education. We love Windermere Prep!
    Our family is a happy and proud Windermere Prep family, of 5 years, with two children enrolled. The individualized care and attention provided to the Students is second to none. Teachers at WPS are consistently the best teachers, each and every year! The sports facilities are fantastic, and the brand new Performing Arts Center is unbelievably impressive.
