Great school, strong academics, caring community. Our girls are in their second year at Warren-Walker and love it. They're being challenged academically and supported socially and emotionally. The teachers and staff at Warren-Walker are simply fabulous. We moved to Warren-Walker from one of the most highly public schools in San Diego. Warren-Walker is leaps and bounds ahead every way you measure.

Love this school! The community of teachers, students and parents are amazing. The children are all so happy to be at school each day which is obvious from the first step on campus. Also love the down-to-earth feel it has among the parent community. Our kids are getting a top tier education and we are so blessed to have found this school.

Our family joined Warren Walker La Mesa in 2010 and it was a decision we are so happy we made. Excellent teachers, challenging academics, friendly and involved parents. You really feel like you are a community here. Just the right mix of challenging subjects and fun activities. The administration is very good at this school. Our two kids are happy and doing well.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
