Our Mission

The Walden School is a place where social, emotional and academic growth are valued equally—a place where students see posibilities, make meaningful choices, take risks, and emerge with a stronger sense of identity, belonging and  purpose.  It is a place where critical thought, creativity and independence are nurtured; where empathy, cultural awareness and tolerance are valued. We champion student choice and autonomy, authentic research and project work. Our school's mission is to develop competent, self-motivated learners dedicated to making positive contributions to society.

Walden School Child Find

 

Every child is entitled to a public education regardless of disability. Children with disabilities may go without services because families are not fully aware of their entitlement. If you know of a child, birth to age 22, who is not receiving any education services or feel that your child is in need of additional services, speak to your child’s classroom teacher or contact our special education specialists, Amy Roan or Lynda Golding, at 801-374-1545.
