Where the Joy of Discovery and the Pursuit of Excellence Meet

A vibrant learning community for young children, Jackson Walnut Park nurtures and educates the whole child in an atmosphere that fosters curiosity and independence in our youngest students, and promotes competence, compassion, resilience, and leadership qualities as students grow. A Catholic school community, we teach and model values inspired by faith in Jesus Christ.

An authentic Montessori curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers instills a love of learning and prepares children for our challenging, discovery-based program of study in elementary school. The intellectual, spiritual, social, and emotional flourishing that students experience here continues well beyond the selective schools they go on to attend in middle and high school. It gives them a foundation that lasts a lifetime. And that’s why Jackson Walnut Park was recognized as the winner of the Boston Parents Paper’s Readers’ Choice awards for Best Faith-Based Elementary School AND — for two years running — Best Montessori Preschool!
