Announcing our home at 1030 Queen Street West in Credit Valley, Brampton
Welcome to 1030 Queen Street West in the City of Brampton! Built in 1874, this schoolhouse will be the home of Walden International School. After considering several properties in the Greater Toronto Area to establish our foundations, this site was chosen for its history and future growth potential. We are proud to have the opportunity to serve the residents in the blossoming city of Brampton. Working with the Economic Development Office and local businesses, we aim to be the destination for families that value the merits of a quality education and demand the very best in progressive learning.
This building best aligns with our school philosophy and objectives to prepare principled, compassionate, and confident young women and men who will become globally responsible citizens. The city of Brampton hosts a diverse and dynamic population that encompasses the culture of Canada. Students will have access to the many world-class recreational facilities and library systems in the neighbourhood. We look forward to opening our doors to the founding cohort students entering Grade 9 in 2016 as we continue to serve and grow with the community.
