    My Children went to Walker Elementary School and Graduated in the Walker School District. I have an adopted child that also goes to WES (K-5). She is on her fifth year. Throughout the years WES has held the highest standards for my child. The Principle Secretaries Teachers and Faculty are all wonderful and dedicated to your child. I could not ask for a better school and sad that this is the last school year that my child will attend Walker Elementary. Each one of the Faculty knows every child by their name. They treat the children like family; help in any way possible to teach all children and prepare them for the next grade level. Walker Elementary School gives your child a wonderful foundation coupled with good work and social ethics to move forward with their education. The only thing I can say is teaching begins at home parenting your child is a vital part of your child s success. Honestly one of the best schools in the parish. I couldn t have asked for a better experience during all the years that my children have attended Walker Elementary School.

    You can not place your child at a better school! The principal is awesome and my children academic performance has sky rocketed. Not only are scores through the roof but the school environment is a dream. The school is very decorated and clean. It has a warm and friendly environment and they truly care about my children. My children love this school and we would not want them anywhere else. We hear things at the ball field and other schools do not even compare to this school's scores teachers principal and the school's nice appearance. If you are looking for a school that cares about every child then this is your school. The principal has made a huge impact at this school and she has our support!

    Amazing faculty and staff! My child attends Walker Elem. and I am very pleased. The teachers strive to help your child learn and are willing to work with them if they are struggling. The new principal is firm but fair and I appreciate that. I know my child is in a safe learning environment while I am away at work. It has been a very positive experience and I would recommend this school to any parent.

    This school has declined severely in the last several years in many different areas. I know their test scores have gone up but it takes more than that to run a decent school in our opinion. We would not recommend this school.

    Walker Elementary is on the right track! A parent is not going to always 'love' the teacher their child receives because of personality differences but most of the teachers at this school are fantastic! I think the technology and facility updates are because of the administration and the teachers. They love that school and the children no matter what their circumstances! This school is often forgotten by the district but look at the improvements they have made! They find their way even without all the perks! In my mind this is what educating children is all about.

    Walker Elementary is definitely 'moving up!' Their 2008-2009 test scores were outstanding the teachers as always are dedicated and kind and the school board is finally making needed improvments on campus. Check it out for yourself!

    Do not judge Walker Elementary by the past. So many things have changed. Most of the teachers and the new principal are awesome. They really care about all of their students. Great school!

    This school has a number of new things going on in the positive direction. For starters there is a new PE program as of 07-08 and the administration has changed. Don't judge it by the past.

    My daughter is going into her third year at Walker Elementary. I am not impressed with this school. The teachers are good.... when they're there. And the subs haven't done anything with the kids. P.E. program is horrible. This school needs a LOT of improvement. Sorry.

    After observing a teacher at Iberville Elem yelling at her students and making threats I couldnt handle my son being in that school any longer. I could see why his grades were suffering. We actually moved to Walker so he could attend WES. The changes have been dramatic. I dont have to fight my son to get up for school. He enjoys going and always has good things to say when I pick him up. His grades have improved from barely passing to A's and B's. WES provides at school clubs to get the kids involved which my son loves. He doesnt fight about homework anymore. He isnt always frustrated when you mention school. The staff has been wonderful to us. Its just a great school. I couldnt be happier that my son is attending. Thanks Mrs. Sibley for being a gift to Stefen!

    My son attended this school for 2 years after leaving Levi Milton. In 4th grade he had a great teacher but in 5 grade we were only pleased with one of his 4 teachers. We receive graded papers each week and many weeks we only received 3 or 4 papers out of 4 classes. Which made me wonder what went on all week. I think the school is ok but the work load should be increased.

    Me as a parent I never liked that school. The education was great but the principal Mr. Hayman just doesn't care and the teachers don't care either. Don't send your child to that school it is a bad school if you do you will find out as soon as you send your child there.

    My son has attended this school for 3 years now. I am very pleased. I regret this will be his last year there before going into Middle school. I can only hope the middle school my son attends next year will be as great as this school has been for my son. My child has learning disabilities and they have been such a great help to him accademic wise and socially.
