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.

Walden serves K-8, even has 1 Pre-K. My child is bright but needed academic nurturing, and she certainly gets it here. There are only 8 children in her class. The teachers set high standards, but they help students achieve those standards. I love that they close out the day with a community meeting where all children are heard!

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.
