    SOME TEACHERS ARE OK BUT SOME ARE JUST LACKING SKILLS THEY ARE ALL OVEWHELMED WITH THE LARGE CLASS SIZE THEY HAVE. IT'S AWFUL I NEED TO GET MY KIDS OUT OF HERE THE BAD THING IS THE DISTRICT DOESN'T WANT TO MOVE THEM TO BETTER SCHOOLS. MY KIDS CAME FROM A SCHOOL THAT WAS RATED A 10 AND NOW THERE STUCK HERE WITH A 3 UNEXPLAINABLE.

    My son has been going there since 1st grade and I now have another son in Kindergarten there and a 5th grader now. I personally have never had a problem! I've loved every caring and supportive teacher so far! Principals change frequently but it doesn't seem to affect the kids. The above comments are so silly kids should yell laugh and be loud there children and there with their friends let them learn and grow up later! Love my Walnut students staff and school!!

    Where should i start. I originally didn't care for this school since the begining. When i went to enroll my children it was total chaos. Kids running in the office yelling the staff talking about how bad the kids were. My child was bullied there on several occasions & nothing was done!!!! They are all so rude at times not all the time & always busy to answer questions. If you call & ask a question they tell you to call the District. I am so over this school I am trying to either move my kids from here or pay for a private school. there are some teachers & staff that are very friendly & you can honestly tell they care.

    Three of my families generations have gone to Walnut including my self and my daughter. I personally love it. The teachers are wonderful with the kids and really interact with them. I never had any problems with bullys or bad association. It's a clean school thats well equipped with good teachers and classrooms. They are just remodeling also with more classrooms and more equipement for recess. My daughter loves it there.

    My children used to attend Walnut but due to boundary changes they had to move schools. I never had any problems there. They have a great staff and a lot of parent involvement.

    The teachers that I have worked with at Walnut have always seemed very nice and outgoing and are always looking for new and fun ways to teach the kids. The teachers work with the parents to make sure that the children are getting what they need when they need it. The principal and vice principal work with the children on behaviour and manners and work with the parents to make sure that their needs are being addressed.
