My son joined Warren-Walker as a 6th grader. We came from the public school system and were looking for a smaller class size to get individualized attention. We have gotten that and so much more. My son has felt very welcomed and easily joined in....and he is a shy guy ! This group of professionals are top notch and have created a culture that our family values such as high standards in warm, open, diversified and nurturing environment. They also care about and support the families by having inexpensive uniform sales, informative lectures on child development and fun activities too. So far.......so great !!

I have two kids that started in kindergarden in La Mesa Warren Walker and are now in the middle school. All of there teachers are wonderful.

We found that Warren-Walker School is a great combination of challenging academics, great opportunities for development in art, theater, sports, and music, and a place where my kids can get plenty of warm and fuzzies. The folks who run the school bend over backwards to make you feel welcome, and always put the student's needs first. A great community. We love it there!
