From The Walker School

At The Walker School, the infinite worth and dignity of each student defines our approach to learning. Walker is the top non-faith based PK3-12 school in metro Atlanta. Our commitment to diversity provides a safe atmosphere for students to discover who they are and how to successfully navigate an ever-changing world.

Wonder guides the educational experience at Walker. It is in our DNA. We kindle students' innate curiosity and channel it into challenging curricula, engaging interpersonal relationships, demanding athletics, and stimulating extracurricular activities. Our goal is to help each child chart a path of self-realization, to discover who they are, and to become their best possible self.

Equipped with a clarity of purpose, strong sense of self, and the confidence and skills to navigate a 21st century world, Walker students make their own path, leading in all manner of endeavor and following only where wonder leads.

STEM at Walker

Our approach to science is hands-on and engaging, and all classes (PK3 - 12th grade) take place in state-of-the-art labs. The Warren Science and Technology Building houses 37,000 square feet of space for our students and teachers to use both in and outside of the classroom, to find the time and space to ponder, collaborate, make thinking visible, and to struggle with complex, meaningful problems.
