Walden Center and School: Admissions Tours 2022-23
Walden Center & School is a small, progressive, child-centered K-6 elementary school where nothing is standardized, and everything is personal. Our unique program is grounded in:
- Agency: Our students take responsibility, make choices, build knowledge, and think critically. They trust themselves.
- Peace: Walden's unique and textured learning community nurtures mutual respect, peaceful conflict resolution, and empathy. We trust each other.
- Arts: Making art engages the whole child and cultivates creative self-expression, risk-taking, and appreciation of multiple perspectives. Children involved in art transfer these habits to academics. They trust their skills.
- Academics: Our academic curriculum is developmental, multisensory, and experiential. Children learn in-depth and with joy. They trust their knowledge.
Walden is located at 2446 McKinley Avenue in Berkeley.
