A school has a choice, to simply meet the expected standards or exceed all expectations and benchmarks. Walden Green is a fine example of going above and beyond to ensure that each student is empowered and equipped to become their best self.

Walden Green Montessori is a FREE PUBLIC SCHOOL! Most Montessori schools are private, but for the past 20 years Walden Green has been a phenomenal school of choice for the Tri-Cities.

I send my kids to Walden Green Montessori for many reasons. First, I wanted an alternative to traditional education. I like that Montessori education is a hands-on learning experience, everything from math to language is taught using "works" that kids master on their own. When you observe a classroom at Walden Green you will see kids actively learning without a teacher standing at the front of the room and kids sitting at desks. Secondly, I like that our kids are not bringing tons of homework home and do not routinely take tests. On average, our kids maybe spend one hour a week on homework. As a parent, I love this. We have time to spend enjoying our kids at home not drilling them to memorize facts and doing homework every night. Several big projects a year do come home and we enjoy working on these projects with our kids. When our kids do take "standardized tests" they are placing above grade level. Lastly, we love the culture of the school. Walden Green kids are confident in who they are, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the teachers and director are passionate about teaching our children to reach their highest potential.

I have two children at Walden Green Montessori, a second and third grader. We have been attending since kindergarten. I can't imagine considering another school! The staff are dedicated and envolved with the children and truely have their best interests at heart. They guide the children socially and give them opportunities to explore topics that interest them. This school does not teach to the average, rather each child is able to progress at their own pace in a judgement-free, supportive environment. My children are being taught to love learning rather than being taught the answers to a test. Children can sit on the floor and move their bodies-which is so good for them phyically- rather than be stuck behind a desk all day. I feel confident that WGM supports my children and plays a major role in their growth into unique individuals. Thank you WGM for all you do for the next generation!
