Field Trips
Educational extension activities are an important part of the Windermere Preparatory School experience. We believe that well-planned field trips afford an experiential learning opportunity that cannot be duplicated in the classroom. We find them to play an integral role in increasing student knowledge and understanding of a subject, add a sense of realism to the topic of study, and provide an opportunity to develop and enhance a student’s socialization and citizenship skills.

Some of our field trips include but are not limited to: Disney Yes programs, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, St. Augustine, Orlando Shakespeare Theater, Reedy Creek Fire Station, Marine Discovery Center, the Dali Museum, Forever Florida, as well as many “in house” field trips where the hands on experience and experts come to us!
 
Community Service
Windermere Preparatory School students learn at an early age that they can have a positive influence on others and the world around them through community service. Beginning in PreKindergarten our students learn to give of themselves by visiting local nursing homes and share their voices and smiles with the elderly residents. Students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade continue to give to others in our community and make a difference in their world by through a variety of activities that include but are not limited to: gathering items for the Matthew's Hope, helping our troops by collecting items for gift packages, and giving to others in poverty through various local and international organizations.
 
2021 Club
This group was established by the class of 2021 when they were in the third grade. Driven by the desire to help others who are less fortunate, several students, with the support of the their parents, came together and put the wheel's in motion. Inspired by the concept of "Noblesse Oblige," where those who are more fortunate help others who are not, this group is responsible for driving many of the Lower School community service projects. 

Character Education
Throughout history, character education has been the shared responsibility of parents, teachers and members of the community, who come together to support positive character development. Character education teaches the habits of thought and deed that help people live and work together as families, friends, neighbors, communities and nations. Character education begins in PreKindergarten and continues through Fifth Grade at Windermere Preparatory School. Our students learn new skills, become aware of the needs and perspectives of others, and learn the importance of selfless serving and giving.
