OvoSodo Bistro Hosts A Night With Windsor

Forest Hills' Ovo Sodo Bistro will be hosting an event for The Windsor School on Thursday, March 26 from 6-9:00pm.  The school, located in Flushing, will have an art gallery set up displaying pieces of art work from its Advanced Placement (AP) Studio and Portfolio Art students.  In addition to having art on display, the School will be answering parents’ questions regarding its Summer School and will be accepting registrations.  A $50 per class discount will be given for those registering at the event.  Ovo Sodo Bistro will be providing hors d’oeuvres and beverages throughout the event.  

The Windsor School is a private middle and high school which opened in 1969.  The school enrolls both local and international students, in grades 7-12, during the regular school year.  What makes the school unique is it offers small class size, many Advanced Placement (AP) classes and a one-hundred percent graduation rate with students being accepted to top American colleges and universities. 

The Windsor School competes annually in the NYS Mathematics League Competition and has finished either first or second overall amongst over one hundred seventy-five participating high schools. 

What makes The Windsor School truly special is its acclaimed art department.  It offers a unique approach to the arts. Its students all receive individual attention from its talented director, Ms. Melissa Vassallo and work in a modern, professional and superbly equipped studio.  Students work in a variety of mediums and are encouraged to explore new techniques.  The Windsor School has a significant number of talented artists who participate in Required Art, Portfolio Art, AP Studio Art, Art Club and Yearbook.

Each summer, The Windsor School runs a highly successful Summer School for students in grades 7-12.  Most of its Summer School students reside in Suffolk County, Nassau County, and Queens.  Students attend the program to advance for credit, enrich in various subject areas or to improve a failing grade.  Students can take up to four classes for credit and can advance in two subject areas during our six-week program.  Credit earned from the Summer School is accepted by all public and private schools.  In addition, they offer PSAT/SAT Test Preparation classes in Critical Reading, Writing, and Math to prepare students for the SAT Test in the fall.


  1. I took some summer courses at Windsor back when I was in high school (about eight or nine years ago). The building is beautiful, but TINY. :)

    1. The Windsor School has moved to a new location, which is both larger and much more modern!

  2. Apparently Baluchi's on Queens Blvd and 76th Road was closed down by the Department of Health? There's a sign in their window but that's all I know. Does anyone have any info?

  3. My daughter took Algebra I and Earth Science at Windsor's summer school last year. She wanted to advance in both subject areas so she could take Geometry and Chemistry this school year in her school. Both of her summer school teachers were amazing! Even though it was a lot of work in six weeks, she got over a 90 in both classes and over 90 on both Regents Exams! She will be going back to Windsor this summer to take their SAT test prep classes. I highly recommend parents to check out Windsor!

  4. I think it's wonderful that Ovo Sodo Bistro is hosting this event. It shows they are supportive of local schools and families who have school-aged children. Parents are always looking for opportunities for their children to improve themselves in school. The Windsor School's programs sound like a great opportunity for middle school and high school students looking to "advance" or prepare for an upcoming SAT exam. Thank you Ovo Sodo for bringing this event to Forest Hills! Some of my friends and their children will be attending.

  5. It's time for more local merchants to connect with our community. This is an excellent gesture .
    It's good for business too.

  6. I'm a parishioner at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church. I have noticed that The Windsor School advertises in the weekly bulletin but knew little about the school itself. I have been looking for a reputable SAT prep program for my son and this may be perfect for him! I called the school yesterday and spoke with the school's principal and he spent quite a bit of time explaining their summer school program and in particular, their SAT prep classes. The tuition is reasonable and what makes their course different than others is they focus on "content" as well test prep skills. It is not just a test prep course. I will be heading over to their event at Ovo Sodo on March 26. If I register my son there, I will receive a $50 discount.

  7. This sounds like a great event! What a great idea to showcase student artwork. I'll be there!

  8. I was a teacher at Windsor two summers ago. They run a tremendous program. I highly recommend their summer program to any students looking to advance in their school in either math or science. The credit will be accepted by your school. Also, their SAT classes are extremely popular. Finally, their school building is very impressive. Parents, you should attend the event and ask a lot of questions.

  9. This sounds like a great event! I've been looking for a summer SAT prep class for my daughter who's currently in 10th grade. I checked out their website and the cost is not bad at all. $625 for the critical reading & writing class and $625 for the math class. Each class is 90 minutes long. It's for five days a week for six weeks. And the best part is if I register my daughter at their event on the 26th at Ovo Sodo, I will save $50 per class! Check it out!
