One World Middle School @ Edenwald was founded in 2011. One World Middle School is a small school committed to understanding ‘who’ the child is in order to teach them.
We are dedicated to creating a respectful environment where diversity is celebrated and individuals learn and flourish by developing character, intellect, wellness and a desire for lifelong learning.
