Academic excellence
At Windermere Prep, your child can carve out a journey that’s as unique as they are. We embrace personalized learning so our students develop their character with their academics, become more self-aware, and own their learning. With just the right mixture of tailored support and challenge from our teachers, WPS students showcase advanced learning, especially through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program — leading them to top-tier colleges and universities.

Year after year, well-rounded WPS graduates are accepted to the US top 50 ranked colleges and universities — including most Ivy League universities — where they excel in multiple areas, including sports and the arts.

As the only school in Central Florida to offer the IB Program, we give our students the advanced curriculum and opportunities to showcase their talents, helping them stand out. Due to the IB’s rigor and global recognition, students who compete IB courses develop a profound understanding of their course material and become well prepared for university studies anywhere in the world.

Outstanding learning experiences
Your child will grow through meaningful experiences that will nourish who they are and who they want to become at WPS — whether the transformation is on an amazing trip; through a challenge or workshop with our world-class experts from MIT, Juilliard, or UNICEF; or during an extracurricular activity in athletics, the arts, or beyond.

We give our students the spark of inspiration and the know-how to discover where they’d like to deepen their interests. For instance, science students may visit and ride the famous rollercoasters of Orlando, experiencing force and momentum as they learn how to write equations. Our performing arts students, meanwhile, may run through a masterclass on stage direction with Juilliard mentors, giving them the best techniques in the industry.  

From 4th grade onwards, our students go on a range of trips that allow them to deepen their personal and social skills alongside their academic growth. WPS students have gone to St. Augustine, Florida; Kennedy Space Center; the Grand Canyon; Alaska; and Tanzania.

The world's best teachers
Our talented teachers create an open and collaborative relationship with your child, allowing them to develop the initiative and self-awareness to know where they are excelling and where they need support. At WPS, the communication between student and teacher formulates the basis of an excellent relationship, as teachers guide their students in nurturing personal qualities, motivations, and interests alongside academics.

The talent and care our teachers put into their students is reflected by the fact that the majority of WPS parents believe their children receive a high-quality education from excellent teachers. 94% strongly agree their children are motivated by their teachers and have a good relationship with them. 

Our teachers allow your child to unlock their highest potential, unleashing their self-expression and nurturing their unique qualities and creativity in the journey — giving them the best chances at the highest academic outcomes.

Our social purpose
Our students discover their social purpose — or how they wish to help others — through different activities, clubs, and initiatives at Windermere Prep. Our vibrant school community tackles many social topics and concerns, and we support our students with integrated studies in our advanced curriculum. One of our special curriculum offerings is intersectional gender studies, for example. Students explore the different components of identity within a complex understanding of our society.

Beginning in Middle School, we host drives, events, and programs centered on serving the greater good. We focus on the “4 C’s” (collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking) in all our actions. Students can get involved in service and fundraising opportunities through the National Junior Honor Society (Middle School), continued in the National Honor Society (High School), as well as through student-led nonprofits like “Play for Keeps,” “Lend a Paw”, and WPS PERIOD.
