About Us

Open Wings School is a progressive learning community in Kenosha that utilizes hands-on, experiential learning for each student.  The school supports the needs of both typical learners as well as those with disorders of relating and communicating, including PDD and autism, ADHD and language delays.  Our very low teacher-to-student ratio allows instruction to be individualized for the typical and complex learner.
