At Walker’s, learning is a vigorous journey where students and educators challenge one another to grow intellectually.
Students learn to identify real-world challenges and create solutions while developing the skills that are essential for college, career, and global citizenship. Our learners take intellectual risks through persistence and resilience which helps them improve and grow as life-long learners. Ultimately, wisdom is gained through experience, mastery, and reflection.
We recognize that learning is greatly impacted by social interaction so central to teaching and learning at Walker’s is the development of deep and lasting relationships within the community. Social connections, formed within a culture of respect and trust, enable students’ individual growth and enhance our students’ understanding of their potential to affect those around them — and themselves.
At Walker’s, we believe that demonstrable skills are the best measure of learning including literacy, critical thinking, a global perspective, taking initiative, leadership, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
