The History of The Winston School San Antonio


The Winston School San Antonio was founded in 1985 by Mrs. Maggie Sheerin and Dr. Mark Weinstein. It began as an extension of The Winston School in Dallas providing academic programs for San Antonio students with learning differences in grades 1-5. Since then, it has grown in both size and scope, and has amicably severed its ties with the The Winston School Dallas.

Original Campus


In 1994, a land grant from the San Antonio Medical Foundation enabled the construction of a state-of-the-art academic facility and gymnasium on a 16-acre campus in the South Texas Medical Center. The Winston School San Antonio opened on its current campus in 1998 and has become a nationally-recognized model for the education of students with learning differences, for its research, and for its acclaimed community outreach progams.

Current Campus


Throughout the years, Winston has significantly increased its presence in the San Antonio community. In the spring of 1989, The Winston School San Antonio was incorporated as an individual 501(c)(3). The school curently serves students in grades K-12, and offers an array of outreach and extracurricular programs for families and students.
