Jackson-Walnut Park Schools in Newton, MA is a thriving and caring learning community sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston. JWP is comprised of two programs whose overarching values provide a well-rounded education for our children that is not only academically sound, but also guides children to become thoughtful and respectful leaders.
Walnut Park is an authentic Montessori school for children between the ages of 18 months through 6 years old.
Children then continue their education at the Jackson School -- an Independent Catholic Elementary school open to all.
At JWP, our committed and dedicated faculty bring just the right balance of rigor and nurture to the classroom. Complementing the academics is a rich variety of cultural and athletic opportunities available in our extensive activities program and after school program (Kids’ Corner). There is something here for everyone!
