Walden's Path School is one of the several Jiddu Krishnamurti Schools located at Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad, India.[2] It follows Cambridge IGCSE syllabi. The School is inspired by Jiddu Krishnamurti's Educational Philosophy. Walden's Path Kinder enrolls students up to six years of age and The Magnet School enrolls students for grades 1 to 12.[3]

Philosophy[edit]

The school is inspired by Jiddu Krishnamurti's philosophy and his life work.[4] Walden’s Path is based on the notion that children need to be able to get to information following their own path, construct and create their own knowledge and paths.[5][6]

Walden's Path | The Magnet School[edit]

The Magnet School[7] follows The Studio Approach with Science, Mathematics, Language and Literature. The Magnet School is admitting students in grades 1-4 for the 2016 academic year.[8] The Magnet School developed an approach and methodology that enables children to discover multiple ways of solving problems in Mathematics and applying concepts in Science.[9][10]

The Experiential Studio serves grades 1 - IV while The Scholar’s Studio serves grades V - XII.

Studio Based Learning[edit]

Walden's Path | The Magnet School follows Studio-Based Learning and is inspired by John Dewey’s work and education philosophy. Unlike a lab that uses standardized procedures with set equipment to reproduce a protocol in order to obtain set outcomes, a Studio is a space that invigorates, inspires and provides an opportunity to create, construct and test objectives and hypotheses and analyse data.[11]
