Walden III is a choice school within the Racine Unified School District (RUSD). Walden Middle and High Schools share the same building, this is our first year in the McKinley school building at 2340 Mohr Ave, Racine.
Walden has a population of approximately 650 students in grades 6-12.
Please see further information under the Enrollment & School Choice Section.
Named after Henry David Thoreau's classic, "Walden," the school encourages its students to march to the beat of a different drummer. The student body is expected to be part of the decisions that affect them at school. Walden students demonstrate high levels of responsibility, self-direction, initiative and cooperation. Each student is expected to contribute toward making Walden III a more friendly, positive learning environment. The Walden III campus is open, meaning there is freedom for students to move about the school. High School students may leave campus for lunch. Students are expected to participate in events such as the Food Drive, Make a Difference Day, and Springing Walden.
