Walden International School Reviews

Our Perspective on Walden International School

The work of Walden, as suggested by the school’s name, is informed by the work of Henry David Thoreau, specifically the idea that working within a natural setting, allowing curiosity to guide you, is the basis to working with others and knowing your place in the world. The offering of the IB program underscores that world view, as does an emphasis on getting into nature. It’s a noisy world. Kids need quiet, and Walden rightly makes that a priority. Instruction is student driven, seeking to inspire curiosity, while also capitalizing on the interests that students bring into the classroom. While academics are strong, it’s the values that the school promotes that is a particular draw to the families that enroll here. The school includes a dedication to 21st century skills, fostering leadership and independence, developing communication and interpersonal skills, as well as much of the staff, students, and the culture. As such the school is at the cutting edge of curriculum delivery, with a gaze firmly set on the skills, behaviours, and values that students will need as they move forward in schooling and in life. The ideal student is one able to make the most of an enriched, creative, student-driven educational environment.
