Walden is an amazing school that provides real hands on learning to it's students. When the 8th graders leave for high school, they are over prepared and have a great sense of who they are and not who someone wants them to be.

Both my children attended Walden and went on into the IB program at St Pete High. Rigorous cirriculum & personal attention! Stimulating and safe environment.

The teachers here aren't very nice to us. They yell at us a lot.

Walden is rigorous academically, yet provides a comfortable and friendly environment. Students receive individual attention in small classes, and learn to work both independently and co-operatively. The students produce a stage play and have recently had their artwork exhibited in a juried art show. Graduates are routinely accepted at the most competitive magnet high schools. There are no cliques, and bullying is not tolerated.

This is a wonderful school where my child blossomed. Students work together and love it, such a contrast to the large, impersonal middle schools around.

We transferred our child to Walden for the 6th grade this year (2003/04) after 6 violent weeks at John Hopkins. What a breath of fresh air Walden was to us as parents... and to our child who absolutely loves the school. The school is small, safe & nurturing and the teachers are wonderful with their teaching methods & lesson plans. The kids never get bored, it's more like a family atmosphere. I highly recommend Walden School.

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.
