    My son went was there for 11 years starting from PK to graduating 8th grade last year. Now that he goes to a different competitive private school not only is he ahead of the game and very well prepared but most importatantly an incredible young adult. It is apparent the difference even more so when you leave and are in a different school environment. Warren Walker knows what they are doing and worth every penny!

    Warren-Walker School is an incredible community from students to the teachers to the parents. When you visit the school and see happy students who are well mannered well spoken and curious and eager to learn you know something amazing is happening.

    I knew that I was sending my kids to a great school but... I attended eighth grade graduation last year just to see. The graduates were composed eloquent talented and their bond to their teachers and appreciation for their education was very evident. After seeing the final "product" I can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else!

    My son has attended Warren Walker since pre-k. After 8 years in this school both I as a parent and my son as a student have truly felt blessed. The teachers truly care about the kids and their future. Their focus is not only with achievement but with effort. My son stands out in a crowd and is very comfortable in conversation even with adults.

    My daughters have been attending Warren Walker for many years. I love this small private school- the class size is small and the teachers are the best! I reccomend this school to anyone who is looking for a great school experience for their kids. Mike Haas

    Multiple kids in private school means I really appreciate that tuition is 60-70% of what I would pay at the comparable private school where I attended. Love the ocean view driving to school every morning! Can't beat the teachers- top to bottom. Very caring and they know how to find the angle that works for my kid's various learning styles and how to keep it fun and interesting. I'm lucky to have above-average kids who can handle the cutting edge curriculum project-based style and workload. Spanish art music P.E. technology... worth every penny.

    We were part of this school for 7 years and I have to say that in the past 4-5 years we''ve seen a decline in the teacher quality and ablility to retain qualified teachers. There are a few truly dynamic teachers if your child is lucky enough to get them. The accelerated curriculum begins to get ridiculous in 4th grade (3rd is a real adjustment because of workload). They've continued to cut staff salaries and give the teachers more responsibilities. Wear and tear of the staff is apparent. Great school if your child loves 'drill and kill' approach to math and a lot of parent produced work at home. The arts are terrific but again those teachers are stretched. Many students have tutors (even in first grade). Good also for self-motivated students. Stressful environment. Ever-growing tuition increases (w/o improvements). We wish we felt better exiting the school but we don't.

    Great school! We are happy with the caring faculty and staff. Our son is excelling in this challengine environment. A wonderful environment where a young man can expand his horizons - academically and socially.

    All schools should be like Warren Walker! School with a home feel. Everybody at school is extremely friendly and they all care a lot about kids and their well being. They all know kids on a first (and last) name basis. Challenging and interesting curriculum. Parents are highly involved. I can not say enough good thinks about the school. The most important my child loves the school kids and all the teachers.

    My son attended WW and we (parents and him) loved it. All of the other reviews are spot on. Curriculum is comparable to other private schools of comparable nature (Parker LJ Country Day) but school is more down to earth and more of a community school. Very caring and supportive atmosphere with high academic rigor starts at the top by the Volkers. 5 star rating.

    My child attends kindergarten and loves going to school everyday. The children are working on 1st grade Math and it is easy for them! Excellant specialists programs Spanish and PE daily along with Music Library Computer Technology and Drama at varies times during the week. The core curriculum is fast paced but my child loves it and yearns for more... In addition to the core curriculum so far the children have learned about England France (along with the impressionists) and Italy - who knows what the rest of the year will bring. I highly recommend the school! Lots of fun activities at school for the kids along with family participation! Lots of parent involvement.

    I have a third grader and preschooler at Warren Walker. It's a fantastic school. Lots of enrichment. Be prepared for a very fast paced academics. Excellent parent involvement and administration seems to know every student on a first name basis..awesome. Student body is very well behaved. Hard on the pocketbook but worth the money!

    Our son attends kindergarten at Warren-Walker lower school and is having a very positive experience. The teachers are enthusiatic and nurturing and he looks forward to class each day. We are very pleased with the decision we made to send him to Warren-Walker.

    Very caring faculty and staff. Warren Walker emphasizes developing good citizens as well as good students. This is a school for average to above average students with good behavior they are expected to work at an accelerated pace and the school does not tolerate extreme misbehavior.

    Our son attended this small lovely school from k-7th. The k-5th location is in a beautiful coastal part of San Diego Pt. Loma. The curriculums enriching the classes never more than 12-15 students and the attention from teachers terrific. My son participated in music art drama and sports all 7 years with a particularly strong music and drama emphasis. Academically the school challenged him (he is extremely bright) and where he excelled they were able to challenge him. I think parents who are looking for high involvement a safe and secure environment and small classes with storng academics would love this school. Warren-Walker is not particularly ethnically diverse in its student population but they are actively seeking to change that profile.

    Warren-Walker is a gem. Private School education with a community - not classist - feel. Our daughter is receiving a strong foundation that will serve her well for the rest of her life. Warren-Walker is head and shoulders above the rest.
