Embarking on its 40th year, The Winston School of Short Hills provides an exceptional education to students in grades 1-8. Winston students are bright, creative, and curious; they work hard every day to learn the strategies necessary to overcome challenges that language-based learning differences, including dyslexia, may present. Students are surrounded by a well-trained, compassionate, and nurturing faculty and staff who take great pride in their success.

As students progress from our Primary (grades 1-3) to Lower (grades 4 and 5) to Middle School (grades 6-8) Divisions, classes are Orton-Gillingham-based, multi-sensory, and engaging. Skill development in reading fluency and comprehension, writing, and math provides a vital foundation for academic achievement. Our students develop confidence as they gain increasing independence and knowledge about their learning style while progressing through the divisions.

THE WINSTON WAY is characterized by a unique instructional philosophy that defines a curriculum, instructional environment and learning culture that collectively celebrate diversity. The uniqueness of each individual learner is recognized and encouraged to develop skills that will promote lifelong achievement in academic, social, and emotional growth. The Winston Way is an Orton-based, multi-sensory, cross-curricular approach that provides students with language-based challenges with opportunities to develop 21st century skills, intellectual curiosity, and creativity in all disciplines. Our team looks forward to collaborating with you and working to build educational experiences that will ensure lifelong success and achievement.

“Winston helped our daughter rediscover her love of learning. At Winston, she not only demonstrated success in the classroom but also became proud of the work she was producing. We are thankful that this gift has allowed her to find success in a rigorous college preparatory high school program. We will always consider ourselves members of the Winston Community!”
