Our Philosophy

  • At Walbridge we believe that each child learns differently because each child brings unique experiences, strengths and challenges to the classroom.

  • We believe that curriculum should be carefully and intentionally adapted to the strengths, needs and challenges of each student.

  • We know from our long experience that all children can learn, so we are committed to the academic success of every single student at our school.

  • We believe that students who have not met with success in a traditional classroom setting can still experience a full and enriching education.

  • We believe that our small, welcoming and inclusive learning community provides a safe place for students to learn and grow.

  • We believe in empowering students to understand how they learn best, to recognize their own strengths, and to realize their human potential as engaged and confident young men and women.
