  • WI: Embracing a spirit of innovation at Walden III
    Summary: This small magnet school starts with the assumption that all students are responsible for their learning even though many who attend aren't in the mainstream at other schools. Nevertheless, high expectations, personal guidance, and active parent involvement help students grow into this responsibility. Walden's goal is to have a student body that mirrors the district's overall demographics regardless of student ability, and all students rise to the challenge outscoring both district and state averages on Wisconsin's state test.
