Winston Students Compete for Optimists’ Oratorical Trophy

Alden Peterson and Alex Levine are fearless. Unlike most people, they actually relish the chance to speak before large groups. The two competed against eight other students for the $150 top prize in the Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club’s Oratorical Contest last week.

recentsuccess8The Winston School inspires hope and success in bright, creative students who have struggled to realize their potential.

Founded in 1988, Winston offers a college preparatory program for students in grades 4 through 12 with learning differences and others whose needs have not generally been met in traditional school settings.

We believe in a bright future for every child. Our small classes provide multi-sensory teaching, individual attention and close connections with teachers and staff members. This environment helps our students discover and develop their natural gifts and passions, fostering within each student what he or she needs to mature and grow with confidence.

There is no stopping our students when we focus on their abilities rather than their disabilities.
