"Every day our family is grateful for the experience Walker's is offering Em. Em is positively thriving, growing every day into the unique experiences offered by her teachers, her peers, and the Walker's context. By having high expectations of its students, the School supports one of Em's motivating needs - independence. By having a clear mission and culture of empowerment, Walker's gives space for Em to gain voice and develop not only her intellect but her very sense of herself in a collective context."
