This dynamic elementary school is located on a 6-acre parcel of land within Inglewood. Colonel Walker is convenient for parents due to its premium location. The school is committed to developing a cooperative learning community for students. Colonel Walker provides a personalized approach to learning; students are encouraged to work collaboratively and take ownership of their learning. The school learning style considers the classroom to be the “third teacher” (formal teachers and parents being the first two), providing students with the resources to explore and learn naturally.
Although Rideau Park acts as a junior high school for Inglewood students, the school is designated as a K–9 facility. Inglewood students join students from a handful of other communities in the area to further their education and become well-rounded citizens. Rideau Park enables students to build on their strengths and learn to be well-equipped for modern challenges.
