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