Admission Overview

The Winston School of Short Hills encourages applicants and their families to begin the admissions process with two goals in mind. First, we begin the process together by exploring whether the Winston program fulfills and matches a child’s needs. Second, we initiate the Winston partnership between family and school. The partnership ensures success for students who desire a meaningful and compelling school experience.
