About Winsor

Winsor is an independent day school for academically promising and motivated girls in grades 5-12. Winsor enrolls approximately 450 students from diverse cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds. They hail from more than 50 different communities in and around the city of Boston.

History

In 1886, Miss Mary Pickard Winsor started a six-month school in Boston, beginning with eight girls in a private home on Beacon Hill. Unlike many girls' schools of the era, Winsor persevered. Today, Winsor remains a school with high aspirations and a clear sense of purpose, now living and evolving in a new century.

Arts

The arts are woven into the fabric of the curriculum and encourage students to discover and develop their artistic abilities. To learn about Winsor’s courses in visual art, music and drama, please visit the Fine Arts course page.

 

Athletics and Wellness


Winsor fosters an active lifestyle and a positive body image through a dynamic physical education curriculum and 14 interscholastic teams at the varsity, junior varsity and middle school levels. "Wildcat" Athletics is an integral part of the Winsor experience. Every season our student-athletes gain lifelong lessons in the value of competition, perseverance and the true meaning of teamwork.

Global Responsibility

At Winsor, thinking globally means thinking about the skills, habits of mind, attitudes and aptitudes that the 21st Century will demand: to get along with many types of people, to understand many cultures, to be flexible and resilient. While this begins in the classroom, an array of programs on and off campus expands girls’ minds.
