Making good people in the knowledge that from goodness arises greatness.
Walden International School – Oakville, was formerly known as Glenburnie School, a private school founded in 1985. When its founder retired in 2018, the school was purchased by the Perugini family who established the first Walden International School in Brampton in 2016.
The original building on the Oakville site was constructed as a family home by a Swedish gentleman who immigrated to Canada in search of an improved educational system for his son. The architecture of the present school reflects this heritage, providing a scale and warmth conducive to the Walden educational program.
Walden kids are different. They are curious, giving and good. At Walden, we make good people in the knowledge that from goodness arises greatness. We are dedicated to cultivating and preparing principled, compassionate and confident young people who will become globally responsible citizens.
Our balanced world class education, with a unique focus on wellness, fosters respect and harmony for self and with others; and, empowers students to imagine, explore and achieve a peaceful and sustainable future.
Our motto, Imagine Explore Achieve, speaks to the potential that we seek in our students. We inspire even the youngest students in our Early Years classroom to reach beyond what they know through inquiry and reflection. And, by embracing daily challenges they learn resilience and gain confidence, both hallmarks of success.
The goodness that happens in our classrooms is not possible without the wonderful work of our teachers. Behind the scenes, they come together daily to develop an engaging program that opens minds, fosters innovation and generates curiosity.
We never know what each day will bring. What we do know is that we can rely on the commitment of our teachers to collaborate and model good working and learning for the students. It is this kind of environment that makes a good school great – dedicated professional teachers, inspired and curious students and enthusiastic parents working together to ensure that from goodness arises greatness.
