    "This being a private school, they seem to get away with much more then a normal well structured public school. If you weren't fully sucking up to the staff or giving the school much more money then you already have, you were treated very differently. We were also very surprised to find out that the "teachers" hardly had the correct experience and degrees to be teaching. Basically you have a private school full of parents that were hired to play the roll of teachers so that their own children can go to the school for free or at a discount. And for what? No lunch room, No Gymnasium, No Nurse's Office, a library the only fits 5 students at once (closet size) and No Sports. My wife and I were very disappointed. We can not imagine our son, or any child, progressing through that school for over 8 years without having the amenities and experiences that so many other GREAT schools have to offer near by offer."

    "My son joined the Walden School in his pre-school year. He loved his school almost immediately. The teachers are very friendly and nurturing. They know how to work with these kids and get them interested. One thing that I really like Walden is that they teach kids how to resolve conflicts with their words, yet there are very little actual conflict in the classroom (most students are well-behaved). It is a small community and you really feel that you are part of a family. My son said that he would love to go to Walden until 8th grade, even if he is only a kindergartener. The academic quality is incredible. My son is able to read books with 3-4 sentences in it at the first month of his kindergarten. It is so sad that he has to move to a public school at the middle of his kindergarten year since we are moving our house. It seems that what is learning at public school at kindergarten has been taught at Walden at his pre-school year. We are really grateful for his time at walden school and think that it will benefit him for a long time. We will definitely miss the Walden school and strongly recommend it to someone who moved to this area."

    "Our daughter started preschool at The Walden School this year, and we could not be more thrilled with her experience there so far. Walden's thoughtful, focused approach to nurturing each child s individual interests and strengths is extremely appealing to us. The children are engaged, focused, and calm in their activities. It seems to us the best possible environment for learning one in which the students enjoy what they are doing but are also doing those things in a way that is purposeful and meaningful to them. Our daughter walks in every morning with such confidence and happy anticipation - it is a real thrill for us knowing that she genuinely wants to be there every day and is already associating learning with joy and positive self-esteem."

    "My son started 18 months ago at Walden in 5th grade. A child that 'hated' school, was sent to the office periodically and would come home crying (25 kids in his class and strong focus on standard testing). I had to do something different for him and after much research, decided on Walden. He was very nervous and scared at first, but the Walden staff and teachers advised to let him be himself as children operate at their own pace. So they watched and guided him in this new school ... now he is a great student, loves school and is developing deep relationships with his peers. I could not be more pleased at the approach they have taken with him. He is cared for and respected at Walden and is thriving. He actually told me he loves school and can be himself! I love the communication and thought that goes into the academic program and just as importantly, the leadership and social skills required to have success and happiness in life. Well done!"

    "Our search for a school started last fall when our daughter started at a local public elementary school and it was clear that she was struggling both academically and socially. We visited a number of private, public, and parochial and ultimately selected Walden and are thrilled to have found the right fit for our daughter. In the past two months we have seen many positive changes in her approach to school, the most dramatic is the fact that she is happy to go in the morning and she comes home the same way. The teachers at Walden see our child as an individual. They celebrate her wonderful qualities and they have an organized plan to help improve her weaknesses. The teachers and administrators have genuinely invested themselves in our daughter and are committed to helping her succeed. We have also seen a huge improvement in our daughter s academics. Her reading, writing, and math skills have increased dramatically and she has a new interest in science. Our daughter is also the extended day program, which is so much fun that she is doesn t want to leave at the end of the day. We are happy to be part of the Walden community and we look forward to the many good things to come."
