Walden Community School 5

With each year that passed with my daughter attending public school, we noticed a decline in her love of learning. Sitting at a desk all day doing worksheet after worksheet and test after test is not how children learn. Walden Community School was exactly the change she needed. This non-traditional environment actually TEACHES children. The teachers are warm and welcoming and the curriculum is rigorous BUT FUN! My daughter loves going to school every day.

The curriculum is rigorous, but appropriate for almost all learning abilities, and the teachers encourage students to do their best.

Students are included in daily community meetings. The students know that the teachers and administration care about what they have to say.

The children learn this from the community of parents, teachers and administration. They see compassion and empathy every day.

The teachers and students participate in community meetings every day. This time is spent discussing any problems or concerns the students may have as well as addresses accomplishments and positive behaviors. Students are held accountable for their behavior.

"My daughter has truly blossomed as both a person and a student as a result of the academically rigorous and warm social environment that Walden provides. They make sure that every incoming student is a good fit for the school and vice versa. I looked far and wide to find a school that did not provide a cookie cutter education. Dr. Milkulka's visionary approach of addressing the whole child and truly caring for the academic and social development of every child is priceless. I could not be happier with the education my daughter is receiving, from the incredible teachers who mentor her and the great friends she has made at Walden!"

"Schools have one fundamental purpose: to educate our children. Many achieve that purpose through traditional classroom learning and simply stop there. Then there are schools like Walden Community School that break the mold and take the notion of education to a new level. Walden delivers traditional classroom instruction in a smaller, nurturing environment that encourages questions and ensures students can truly understand. But, that is just part of the recipe. Walden also challenges students by exposing them to a variety of topics, providing new ways to learn that stretches their critical thinking, and helps them view the world more broadly. A love for learning, bravery, objectivity, and a respect for alternative points-of-view are just some of the take-aways our daughter has gained from being in this environment the past two years. Walden has transformed her. She is thriving like never before, confident, and prepared to make a difference to the planet. That is how Walden Community School delivers on the purpose of educating our children."

Fantastic non traditional learning environment - perfect for the middle school years and beyond. This small school has such a close knit community feel and removes all the typical negative things associated with large public schools. Because it is small, students have lots of one-on-one time with teachers and are they are able to have courses like art, music, drama, dance and even a hands on organic garden.

Great school. Students feel comfortable and safe, so that they can learn without distractions and at their own pace and gain social skills in a safe environment.
