Warren-Walker School

Warren-Walker School, whose original campus in Point Loma overlooks the Pacific Ocean, has been a part of the San Diego community since 1932.
We have more than 85 years of experience in providing an enriching, inviting, and caring environment for learning and growing.
Today, Warren-Walker has an Early Learning Center (Infants & Toddlers) planned to open in November 2018 in the Point Loma area; two Lower School campuses for PK-5th grades, one located in Point Loma and the other in La Mesa, and a third 6th-8th grade Middle School campus in Mission Valley.
Early Learning Center is located at 2905 Cadiz Street, San Diego, CA 92110; Point Loma Lower School is located at 4605 Point Loma Avenue, San Diego, CA 92107; La Mesa Lower School is located at 5150 Wilson Street, La Mesa, CA 91942; and the Middle School is located at 2231 Camino del Rio South, San Diego, CA 92108. Beginning in prekindergarten and continuing through eighth grade, small classes, capable and enthusiastic teachers, and lots of student-teacher interaction combine to make Warren-Walker School a very special place for children.
Students receive challenging academic courses carefully balanced by a curriculum that includes special instruction in art, foreign language, physical education, music, performing arts, computer & library science, and character education.

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 !!

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!
