Warren-Walker School believes the development of self-confidence, self-discipline, good character, and academic achievement is founded in a solid acquisition of basic skills, thinking skills, and communication skills brought about by a highly dedicated faculty, administration, and staff.
Through small class size, ample student-teacher interaction, and a safe, caring environment, we carry out our philosophy in the following ways.
The academic curriculum is presented and taught using resources and materials in a way that reflects the style and methodology of each teacher, fulfilling the needs of the students while encouraging them to achieve to their highest and fullest potentials. We believe that the relationship between student and teacher is paramount to the learning process.
The development of thinking skills is an ongoing process in education. The application of higher-level thinking reinforces and solidifies the groundwork of material presented and taught in class, bringing to it a greater meaning and perspective. The curriculum is enhanced with depth and complexity through well-designed lessons and unique interdisciplinary units of study to ensure that we engage and challenge our students.
Communication skills are developed in a variety of ways in the classroom, as well as through the specialist programs. Presentations, recitations, dramatic and musical performances, computer and library activities, art and foreign language instruction all teach, encourage, and enhance the development of good communication and self-expression.
