Alumni are an important part of Warren-Walker School’s legacy and sustainability. We are proud to have graduated over 10,000 students who have gone on to many of the best high schools, colleges and universities both near and far! Much of our current enrollment includes many students who are the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of our alumni, which demonstrates a profound and meaningful loyalty to Warren-Walker School.
Alumni Spotlight...Gulls on the Move!
Warren-Walker School always seeks to stay connected with all our former students as they graduate from high school and enter college or university, for it is their success that is testimony to our efforts as a School. Please check in with us when you have a moment to let us know what's going on in your life!
And a great way for our alumni to preserve the sustainability of Warren-Walker School is to make a contribution to The Warren-Walker Promise Foundation in name, in recognition of a Class year, or in honor of a faculty member!
The Warren-Walker Parents Foundation (WWPF), established in 1986, is comprised of all the parents of Warren-Walker students and spread amongst (4) auxiliaries: Early Learning Center Auxiliary, Point Loma Campus Auxiliary, Middle School Campus Auxiliary and La Mesa Campus Auxiliary. Proud of its relationship with the teachers and administrators of Warren-Walker School, the purpose and continued involvement of this organization is to support the school in any manner the members, working closely with the administration, deem appropriate.
The WWPF’s primary goal is to enhance all WWS students’ educational environment by providing an effective vehicle for channeling the creativity, resources, and energies of WWS parents, grandparents and surrounding community. The primary fund-raising events conducted by the WWPF include the individual auxiliaries' Parent Party, Fun Run, Restaurant Nights, Greenery sales, See's Candy sales, etc. Proceeds from these events support a wide variety of programs. The WWPF provides an Arts Enrichment program, which annually brings a series of performing arts programs on campus for the students, in addition to providing financial backing for the class plays. Other WWPF-supported enhancements to the curriculum include "mini-grant" awards for teachers to acquire specific classroom items, the purchase of books for the library and classrooms, and new technology for the computer labs.
The WWPF sponsors various activities aimed at increasing communication between parents and the school. These activities include the school directory, the Back-to-School luncheon for faculty and administration, and the coordination of room and grade-level parents. The WWPF also organizes family barbecues, fall carnivals, new family outreach and annual yearbook production. Finally, the WWPF arranges community service events with various charitable organizations in order to teach our students how to give back to their community.
The Warren-Walker Parents Foundation (WWPF) is always looking for volunteers to help with the many projects it sponsors. Some of those opportunities include serving on the Executive Board as an officer, chairing the many committees, or volunteering time in a classroom by sharing a special talent, hobby, or information as a means of curricular enhancement.
Some committee opportunities include:
- Art Enrichment
- Book Exchange
- Book Fair
- Middle School Dances
- New Family Outreach
- Parent Party and Auction
- Room or Grade Liaisons
- Uniform Resale
- Staff Appreciation
- School Carnivals

The Warren-Walker School Parents Association (WWPA) is also an association for grandparents and offers many opportunities for you to be involved. Additionally, we are pleased to invite and welcome our students' grandparents on campus campus throughout the school year, and hope you will be able to join your grandchild for the wonderful events we have, such as the Fall Carnival and the class plays, and especially Grandparents’ Day.
