Welcome to Westchester Lower School
Welcome to Westchester Lower School, where students with language-based learning disabilities receive proven, research-based instruction within a supportive, nurturing environment. Our highly-trained faculty and staff are dedicated to supporting our students’ academic success while fostering their social and emotional growth. Commitment to helping each child realize his or her potential and shared pride in our students’ accomplishments are hallmarks of the Lower School community.
Daily instruction is focused on building fundamental academic skills as well as interpersonal and organizational skills. Within small classes, students receive the direct instruction and support they need to begin bridging the gap between their academic performance and potential. Through teacher modeling, guided practice, and class discussions, Windward students build the self-confidence necessary to flourish academically and socially.
Our vibrant school community is characterized by respect, kindness, and empathy. All students are appreciated and valued, and feelings of confidence and belonging permeate the building. Our neighborhood campus provides a safe, inviting atmosphere for learning and lush fields for sports and games.
The picture below is the view from my office window. I delight in hearing the children play on our beautiful property. Above all, I enjoy visiting our classrooms and watching the transformative teaching and learning that takes place each day.
