Walden’s teachers know each child very well, and teachers communicate with one another to provide a complete picture of every student’s development. They also work together to create and continuously refine curriculum that progresses naturally from year to year, with students reinforcing and building on the skills and concepts they have mastered in the previous grade. Not only do teachers collaborate regarding each individual child’s success, but also the collaboration includes the child himself and his family. This naturally leads to a strong bond between child, teacher, family, and school community that nurtures the child’s peaceful and joyful educational journey.
Whether graduates move on to a public, parochial, or independent high school, they invariably report that Walden has prepared them well. Walden graduates are self-aware and prepared for life. Walden graduates engage as leaders in the world. Walden graduates maintain that their life-long love of learning is thanks to Walden.
As a preschool through grade 8 independent school, The Walden School is in a unique position to understand your child’s journey from ages 3 through 14 and give him or her a truly personal educational experience.
“Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.”
