Windermere Preparatory School Educates the Whole Child

While academic achievement is Windermere Preparatory School’s highest priority, it is complemented and enriched by a multitude of resources and extracurricular activities, such as fine and performing arts, athletics, clubs and community service.

Windermere Preparatory School (WPS) is a private, pre-kindergarten through grade 12 International Baccalaureate (IB) college preparatory school located on a 48-acre lakeside campus with state-of-the-art facilities. The WPS academic approach is built on complex problem solving and critical thinking, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth. 

The school’s academics are complemented and enriched by a multitude of resources and extracurricular activities, such as fine and performing arts, athletics, clubs and community service. It is composed of thinkers, learners, leaders, innovators, artists, student-athletes and a faculty of master teachers. WPS is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Florida Council of Independent Schools, and the Southern Association of Independent Schools.

WPS ignites a student’s passions inside and outside of the classroom, whether it be sports, fine arts, robotics or one of the many other co-curricular programs the school offers. Its faculty strives to teach its students how to manage their time between academics and extracurriculars and create time management behavior that will last them a lifetime. In addition, the school’s college counselors meet with students to review and set their college goals.

As part of the Nord Anglia Education of Schools, WPS collaborates with world-leading organizations and experts including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for its innovative STEAM curricula and The Juilliard School for its Fine Arts Programs offered at all ages. In addition to the WPS academic curriculum, the athletic program has nearly 60 middle and high school teams competing in Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) programs, with student participation over 59% campus-wide. 

To complement the WPS academic and athletic programs, the comprehensive fine and performing arts program strives to unleash expression and unlock the passions of all its students. The school’s collaboration with The Juilliard School comes to life in its visual arts, theatre, media arts, music and dance. 

Community service is also important and the dedication to service work reflects the deep belief of WPS that students are at their best when helping others. Students learn at an early age that they can have a positive influence on others and the world around them through community service. As an International Baccalaureate World School and one of Nord Anglia Education’s family of international schools, WPS provides students with a global perspective both inside and outside the classroom.
