Walker's Middle School
Walker’s Middle School is a day program for students in grades six through eight. As the only all-girls middle school in central Connecticut, we attract families from as far away as the New Haven area, Litchfield County, and the Glastonbury/Hebron area.
- A Learning Environment That’s Right for Girls
- Reaching Beyond Academics
- An Integral Part of the Walker’s Community
Girls in their adolescent years build confidence and capabilities when they feel connected to larger ideas. It catalyzes their thinking and their strengths, individually and collectively. The principles we seek to establish in the Middle School are based on four main ideas including a sense of wonder, possibility, and preparedness within a warm, supportive community.
Math, science, history, English, creative arts, and world languages (Chinese, Spanish, or Latin) are the core of the Middle School curriculum. Hands-on learning is used extensively to build engagement and enhance skills. But alongside academics, we teach wellness, study skills, and community service to instill a sense of confidence and personal balance.
Walker’s Middle School is located next door to the Upper School, so girls from both schools spend time together every day. They participate in school traditions and meetings, and form friendships. These things emerge naturally from the shared sense of a single, caring community, but the Middle School is its own learning environment.
