Winchester Thurston School announces a new name for its location on Middle Road in Hampton Township. Previously "North Hills Campus at WT," the campus will now be called "Winchester Thurston School, North Campus."
The change was developed after conducting in-depth qualitative and quantitative research with both current and prospective families. The research shows that the new name more appropriately describes the broad geographic reach of the Pre-K – grade 5 campus, making it more reflective of the school's population.
And, by spelling out Winchester Thurston School, the name more immediately reflects the dual experience with the school's City Campus in Shadyside. Lower School students at the City Campus regularly experience a deep application in outdoor learning on the North Campus's seven rolling acres, and students at the North Campus join their City Campus friends in unique educational opportunities with leaders from the academic, cultural, scientific, and business communities in Pittsburgh through City as Our Campus.
New logo treatments for the campus which reflect that the two campuses are parts of the same whole were unveiled this week.
