Parent Communication

Communication between home and school plays a significant role in educating our students. It helps to clarify expectations, assess progress, and understand student needs.

Through open communication, Winsor shares important information with parents and, in turn, responds to parents when they have questions about the program or their daughter’s progress.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

In the fall, parents have an opportunity to speak individually with their daughter’s academic teachers at conferences scheduled during two full school days. Parents hear about current and ongoing projects and discuss their daughter’s work. In Lower School, another set of conferences is held in the spring.

If parents wish to arrange longer individual conferences, they may do so at anytime during the school year by contacting their daughter’s advisor.

Back-to-School Night and Visiting Day

In the fall, parents are invited to a Back-To-School Night to meet their daughter’s academic teachers and advisors and to learn about the curriculum.

Parents are also invited to “Visiting Day” once a year. On that day, each student invites one adult to spend the school day with her. Parents may divide the day in any way that is convenient to them.


Every Winsor student has a faculty advisor who is the initial point of contact between home and school. The advisor keeps track of the student’s academic progress and her general well-being.
