About us

Walden Center & School is an independent, K-6 school where drama, music, and art sit alongside traditional academic subjects as our core curriculum. Walden’s philosophy of education incorporates the following principles:Integrating Arts and AcademicsArtistic expression is an essential element of every child’s education.Engaging the Whole ChildChildren learn best when their academic, emotional, physical, and social needs are addressed concurrently.Seeing Children as Individuals In designing and implementing curricula, we take an individualized approach in order to meet each child where he or she is developmentally.Teaching as a CollectiveThe teachers run the school, which provides them with autonomy and flexibility in the classroom and direct participation in school-wide decision making.Our approach to learning encourages creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking as means to help children develop a lifelong love of learning, a strong sense of community, and a powerful sense of self. Walden’s graduates are self-directed and have a joyful confidence that allows these young people to contribute positively to the world around them.
