Jackson Walnut Park School is a vibrant learning community that nurtures and educates the whole child. We foster curiosity and independence in our youngest students and promote competence, compassion, resilience, and leadership qualities as students grow. JWP is a Catholic school community where teachers model and encourage values inspired by faith in Jesus Christ.
Our authentic Montessori curriculum instills a love of learning in a collaborative environment and prepares Walnut Park toddlers and preschoolers for the challenging, discovery-based program of study as they continue on to Jackson School. The intellectual, spiritual, and social development that students experience at JWP continues well beyond the selective middle and high schools they attend after graduating. It establishes a foundation that lasts a lifetime, benefiting the communities, families, and professions they will later serve. For this reason, Jackson Walnut Park has been recognized as the Best Faith-Based Elementary School and the Best Montessori Preschool by the Boston Parent’s Paper’s Readers Choice Awards.
