About Whispering Wind

Greetings and welcome to Whispering Wind Academy!

At Whispering Wind, we celebrate all learners. We are proud to have unique programs that support all students including two self-contained Special Education programs, the Academic Structured program and the Learning for Independence program as well as our Special Education Resource program and our gifted program. We are also incredibly lucky to be home to the Mandarin Dual Language Immersion program which allows our students to start learning Mandarin as early as Kindergarten!
