Dr. Mitchell Salerno Profile


Head of School

Windermere Preparatory students are ambitious wherever they learn -  the classroom, court, stage or field.  We believe there is no limit to what each student can achieve and provide an environment where creativity and challenge help us get better every day. 

The PreK-three through twelfth grade student body and faculty represent over sixty countries and cultures, providing an abundance of diverse interaction. Our boarding program brings students from all over the world to WPS, enriching both their educational experience and those they interact with each day on campus. We are an accepting, safe, and welcoming school of professional and loving educators, dedicated to providing the best well rounded and ambitious educational experience for our students.

As a Laker, individual ambitions are explored and ignited through the global learning community within the Nord Anglia Education family of schools. Membership in this worldwide network of schools provides access to innovative and forward thinking programs such as MIT, Julliard, Global Campus, UNICEF and service learning opportunities throughout the world. There is truly no limit to what can be explored.

Windermere Prep is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Diploma Program (DP) for students in grades eleven and twelve. Whether students pursue the full diploma or certificate program, participation in IB prepares students for the academic rigor of university and provides a global perspective, preparing students for success in a rapidly advancing world.

Lakers pursue their ambitions through curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular passions in the arts and athletics. Our instructors, coaches, athletes, and artists utilize the remarkable facilities on our campus to produce, create, and compete to their highest potential. 

We look forward to sharing the passion of our Windermere Preparatory School community with your family. It’s always a great day to be a Laker!
