Seven Hills School:
Seven Hills School Walnut Creek is an independent, not-for-profit, day school serving 375 preschool-8th graders. Our school is located in Walnut Creek in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, 16 miles east of Oakland. Our small class sizes and strong faculty contribute to a challenging, developmentally-appropriate educational program. Integrated studies and hands-on participation encourage imaginative and critical thinking, as well as a mastery of academic skills. At Seven Hills, we attend to the intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic needs of each child. We believe that both success and failure create the potential for growth and learning.
Seven Hills School Walnut Creek is accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Seven Hills is also an active member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) and other independent school associations. Seven Hills enjoys a long standing partnership with educational institutions nationwide.
At Seven Hills, our mission is, “to develop the intellect, engage the spirit and foster respect for and responsibility to our world". We are a community of parents, educators and students who are committed to lifelong learning. We enjoy an environment in which a student’s curiosity is inspired, engaged, and rewarded. We support educators who value professional development, lead each other and their peers to best practices, and accomplish all of this in a spirit of collegiality.
- Early Childhood Programs: The preschool and pre-kindergarten half day programs build self-esteem and help develop in children the ability to cooperate and work with others.
- Lower School Program: Kindergarten through 5th grade students develop skills and confidence in the exploration of math, science, reading, and writing as they strive to meet high academic standards.
- Middle School Program: For 6th to 8th graders we've built a challenging curriculum that develops competence in key areas.
* Kindergarten - 8th grade specialty classes offered include: Art, Music, PE, Spanish, French, Library, Computer, Transitions.
Extended Day Program: This program is offered until 6:00 pm daily, excluding school holidays.
Buddy Family Program: To ensure that families new to the school feel “right at home” a Buddy Family from the new student’s grade is asked to “adopt” the entire family. Families get together before the start of school and throughout the year, making sure that the newest families in our school become part of our community quickly and seamlessly. The program is coordinated by a parent volunteer and is ongoing.
Big Buddies Program: Our Big Buddies program is the bridge between our multi-aged student body. Beginning with the preschoolers, Big Buddies are paired up one on one between older and younger students.
At Seven Hills, there is so much more than classroom academics. From community service to after school enrichment programs or a parent-student book club to the community lecture series, Seven Hills offers an enriching educational experience beyond the classroom. Our faculty, staff, students, and parents take pride in knowing that Seven Hills offers a whole child approach to education.
We are an inclusive community and stress compassion, social awareness and diversity. The school provides opportunities for leadership and service that culminate in positive contributions to the world beyond our fences.
Seven Hills School has a strong commitment to its after school athletic program for both girls and boys. We have a “no-cut” policy and participation is open to all academically and behaviorally eligible students. It is our intention that the program be both inclusive and competitive. For many sixth graders, the Seven Hills’ sports program is their introduction to a new menu of opportunities.
We love to give our students experiences that help them find hidden talents and encourage them to take valuable risks. The athletic program is designed with that in mind. Our middle school students are encouraged to participate in one of the many programs offered throughout the year.
