The school, founded in 1886, moved from Boston’s Beacon Hill to its current location in the Longwood area in 1910. Winsor’s historic campus is a seven-acre oasis, nestled amid Simmons and Wheelock Colleges, Harvard Medical School and many of Boston’s renowned teaching hospitals. Classes make frequent use of nearby resources, including the State House, Boston Public Library, African American Meeting House, Museum of Science and Museum of Fine Arts. n the early 1900s, a group of parents asked Miss Winsor to be director of the school they intended to build. They formed a corporation in 1907, bought land on the Fenway, and hired the Boston architect R. Clipston Sturgis to build "the most perfect schoolhouse." President Eliot of Harvard, an original incorporator and grandfather of two Winsor girls, suggested the motto that remains today: "A sound mind in a sound body." In 1910 the Winsor School opened with 225 students. It included a library, science laboratories, art studios, and a gymnasium and swimming pool. At the dedication ceremony, a young 1901 graduate, Susan Hallowell Brooks, spoke not of a building but of how Winsor teachers nurtured "clear thinking and pure lives."
