    I am a grandparent who assists with school work for my grandchildren on a weekly basis. Since they have been at Walls I have been extremely impressed with the caring dedication and effort that Walls teachers have put in to meet the needs of each child. I have worked as a school secretary for the past 24 years in another district and can vouch for the fact that Walls can hold its head high and be proud of what they do each an every day. Keep up the good work. You have set the bar high and you rise to it every day.

    I think this is a great school. One thing I think needs improvement is kindergarden should be full day. They say there isnt enough room well I say to that our taxes are high enough they should build on to make room. Besides that I think the school district is excellent.
