School Notes

  • Our progressive approach to learning, with a 1:10 teacher/student ratio, allows each student to excel and progress far beyond the standards of a regular classroom. Seminar-based classes (even in our elementary school) require active participation from each student. Engaging students to become involved and excited about learning is the result. Our graduates have been accepted at New College, Smith, Elon, Stetson, and Rollins, among others.  Walden fosters independent thinking and personal responsibility for success, and our students graduate well prepared to succeed in college.

School Reviews

5.0  10/6/2012
Walden now has over 20 kids in Middle and High School (no elementary). This is a great school where the students get individualized / differentiated instruction. Students are motivated and encouraged to do the best they can. The school focuses on academics -- but also on the "whole child" -- their emotional, physical, academically and social needs.
