Winsor School Reviews

Winsor was an absolute nightmare for me. The only reason this is not one star is because some (key word: SOME) of the teachers genuinely cared. Unfortunately, many of the other teachers were unhelpful to the point of harm.

I felt like a complete outsider the entire 8 years I was there. I struggled desperately with my mental health because of this and faced nothing but indifference and pushback when I went to teachers/administrators for help. It was academically challenging, sure, but it was also geared towards such a specific niche (hah) that I was made to feel simultaneously overwhelmed in the classes they focused on (STEM), and underserved in the classes I was interested in.

Let's put it this way: if you're a rich white girl from old money who plays some sort of sport and wants to go to Harvard to be a doctor/lawyer, this is the school for you. If not, consider this school for you/your child at your own risk– especially if you're considering starting anywhere before high school.

Overall, my experience at Winsor was overwhelmingly positive. Personally, I would like to see a change in the school’s response to mental health issues. The school’s biggest asset is its faculty. My teachers were passionate, engaging, and valued me as an intellectual and as a person; I feel that they genuinely wanted to see me succeed. Some of my classmates disliked their Winsor experience, but Winsor was undoubtedly the perfect fit for me. Although the work at Winsor can be overwhelming at times, it's worth it. Winsor taught me crucial skills, including critical thinking and time management, and cultivated my intellectual curiosity and my love of learning. Winsor prepared me well for college; I entered college leagues ahead of many of my college classmates. I feel very fortunate to have attended Winsor and am thankful for the opportunities the school has given to me.
I attended Winsor from 5th to 12th grade, and I'm forever grateful for the education I received there. I was more than prepared for college and Winsor especially gave me tremendous training in writing and grammar. I realize that Winsor's classes and excellent teachers that have given me a strong work ethic that I have to this day, confidence to speak up in and outside of the classroom, and ambition to do big things going forward. The school has a crazy number of clubs and crazy terrific food, too. There was a lot of work which often was very stressful, and the school is not without its flaws. However, it was worth it, and I am so proud to be a Winsor grad.
