    The school is a nice school but it needs work with the staff bus drivers and students. The staff needs work because some aren't " kid" friendly. For example with the special education teachers some drag the kids around and yell at them for doing nothing wrong at all. Also if we have a assembly and a special education students makes a noise or many noises they have them stand outside--- even if it's cold. The school also needs to work on bus drivers. They need to work on this because some bus drivers drive slow and get the kids late to school while others drive quickly and get the students to school earlier than the teachers arrive. The students also go through a lot also and they're many cliques and groups that only certain people can join into. This is most often happens with girls but some times with boys but not most of the time-- the boys are drama free. When the girls have their own little groups they become annoying to some and they start thinking that they rule over everyone else that's not in their group. They also become snotty rude bossy they make fun of people and they bully them as well. Other than that they school is fine.

    I am a parent of a first grader at Mary Walter and honestly believe he is receiving a better education than any of the surrounding schools. This school has a warm and inviting atmosphere and his teachers keep me informed of all his academic growth and progress. I am proud to be a parent of a student at Mary Walter Elementary.

    I have 3 children 2 of which have attended this school. I feel that the teachers are more than helpful with the students and bend over backwards to make sure that the children fully comprehend the material. The faculty and staff work closely with the parents. It's definitely a close knit family. I wouldn't want my children in any other elementary school.
