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. 

Imagine - Explore - Achieve

What Our Parents Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our parents do the talking!

Our daughter has totally thrived during her time at Walden International School. She has found her voice and confidence in social situations, and an ability to problem solve in the real world. We are so grateful for all the amazing learning opportunities, communication and friendships we have found at Walden.

Grade 4 Parent

Thank you for everything you have done this past semester. Our daughter has grown and matured so much because of your kinder program. We are thrilled with her progress, and more importantly, that she loves her school and her teachers. Kindergarten Parent

Time and time again, my son’s teacher has gone out of her way to let us know how our son is doing. The personal touch my son’s teacher has added to every aspect of her job has simply been phenomenal. She is truly that special teacher one can look back on in adulthood as having “made a difference” that every child deserves at least once. Primary Parent
