While big campus upgrades like the Learning Commons redesign are paid for through major gifts, there are always smaller enhancements to be made around campus. In recent years, program enhancement funds have been used to purchase computers, software, SmartBoards, lab equipment, and other resources.
Research and Development
Research and Development is a big part of what has made Windward a premier educational institution in Los Angeles. This money allows teachers to continue their education and attend conferences to stay current on teaching methods and trends in education. It also allows teachers to research and grow new programming ideas for Windward and to develop partnerships with top universities.
Financial Aid allows our admissions team to create a student body with great socioeconomic diversity, a student body that is more similar to the makeup of the college classes and workplace environments in which all of these students will be expected to perform later in life. Students with different family backgrounds have different perspectives, which make for more dynamic conversations both in and out of the classroom. Since 2008, financial aid recipients have maintained an average GPA of 3.7 and 100% of aid recipients have continued on to college.
Benefactor level supporters will be invited to a March cocktail party, hosted by our Head of School, in appreciation of their support.
