Here you’ll find child-centered K-6 education at its best. Our approach to teaching makes learning a multisensory, joyful, and lasting experience. We cultivate a diverse community of learners, families, and teachers to create a secure and textured learning environment. Walden students love to go to school every day.
Walden Center & School is a place where children’s learning is at the center of all we do. A Walden education is as unique as your child.
Our arts-academics integrated approach to teaching and learning is part of a core philosophy that has put Walden Center & School at the forefront of progressive education since 1958. We combine arts education, a deep understanding of child development, and a commitment to social-emotional learning to help us form our unique approach to educating children.
We are a group of teachers and parents who have created an environment where children take an active role in their own learning and where arts and creative expression are a part of every child’s education, every day.
Everything about Walden is unique. From the way we approach learning to the way we structure our governing board, we have a unique approach which is informed by our philosophy, our history, and our mission.
Walden is a member of Independent Schools of the San Francisco Bay Area (ISSFBA).
