From the Head of School
Welcome to Walden. It is truly incredible to be able to work and learn in a school built almost a century and a half ago. We’ve lovingly restored the interior to reflect its origins and have created new learning spaces that encourage discovery and collaboration. But beyond the aesthetics, we have built a school for families that value excellent teaching and learning, where curiosity, creativity, and confidence are fostered, and where academic rigour is celebrated.
Our motto, Imagine Explore Achieve, speaks to the potential that we seek in our students. We inspire even the youngest girls and boys in our Early Years classroom to reach beyond what they know through inquiry and reflection. And, by embracing daily challenges they learn resilience and gain confidence, both hallmarks of success.
But what ultimately sets our standards at Walden is our team of dedicated faculty and staff who never cease to amaze me with their innovation, patience, and professionalism. They are educators who feel that every child is deserving of the very best, who are committed to delivering the very best, and who are not apologetic for demanding the very best.
We look forward to your visit to Walden. We are eager to share with you our promise of a quality education.
