What Our Families are Saying

"Winchendon proves that school and learning can be exciting, interesting, and fun.  Our child is engaged and discusses what he has learned and is doing at school.  

Our worries and stress about his academic future have been alleviated since being at Winchendon.  The Winchendon experience has restored our child’s self-confidence, enthusiasm, and curiosities."

"It has helped his self-esteem. He enjoys it. He enjoys going to school. He sees a future.

He went from being tutored for a lot of his subjects to doing the tutoring himself."


Some students may only need to focus on a few of these, and others may want to work on a number of them over time.   The Learning Strategist works with a student and their family to develop and maintain a personalized plan for that student - which is the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP).
