Winston’s Learning Solutions, Travel Experiences Prep Teenager for College
Travel is a priceless teacher. For Graham Cunitz, a senior at Del Mar’s The Winston School, travel has been an important exercise in self-sufficiency. His adventure to Peru and Macchu Picchu last year was a vital confidence builder for the teenager with learning disabilities.

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. The contest, which draws local middle and high school students, requires participants to deliver a speech on this year’s topic, “How My Optimism Will Help Me To Greater Achievements of the Future.”
The 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.
