About the Windsor School
The Windsor School is located in Queens, New York. With a flourishing economy and convenient traffic, it is about a 30-minute drive to Manhattan. It was chartered as a private school by the Department of Education in the State of New York in 1969. It obtained a permit from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and had legal qualifications for international student recruitment. Relying on competent faculties and quality education, the school was appraised and chosen to be one of the members of the College Entrance Examination Board and the College Scholarship Service.
The college has an extremely high college admission rate, which is an important factor in assessing the teaching quality of high schools in the U.S. The admission rate of the first fifty universities in the U.S. usually reaches 43%, which cannot be separated from the excellent teaching quality.
A key to Ivy League universities, the school provides outstanding teaching quality, and most students have access to Harvard University, Yale University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Universities with higher teaching quality can be approved to set more AP courses and Honours courses. Compared to 8-12 courses set in general high school, the AP courses in The Windsor School have reached a total of 37. AP courses will give you an advantage in applying for university.

For the students who have poor results, special teachers will be arranged for individual instruction.
