The Windward School was founded in 1926 as a progressive day school by Isabel Greenbaum Stone. Learn more about the history of the School below.
Windward renovates its main building at Windward Avenue, doubling its size by adding 14 additional classrooms, a full-size gymnasium, science and computer labs, a teachers' lounge and staff offices.
Windward Teacher Training Institute (WTTI) is established. WTTI provides professional development based on scientifically validated research in child development, learning theory and pedagogy.
In order to create more seats for younger students, The Windward School graduates its last high school senior class in June—dropping grades 10-12—and reconfigures the location of its student body. Grades 1-4 are now at the original Windward Avenue Campus and grades 5-9 are located at the West Red Oak Lane Campus.
The Judith C. Hochman Building, named for the former Head of School and founder of the Windward Teacher Training Institute, opens in September. The building houses an expansive space for the WTTI, including classrooms for courses and workshops; an auditorium for lectures and student performances; an art gallery for the display of student work; and an office suite housing the Business Office and the Office of Institutional Advancement.
