    I love Walnuts school all the teachers know your name it is way better than the school I know attend in West Virginia. Walnut is very accelerated in learning. Here in West Virginia the most accelerated school is teaching things you learned four years ago in Walnut. It is a great school. I wish I could still attend.

    I can not say enough great things about the kindergartener teacher at Walnut. She has helped my daughter come out of her shell. With her experience love of reading and more. I am not sure our district can afford to lose her. I hope my son gets the chance to have her for a teacher.

    Walnut School has teachers that care about their students and are willing to put extra time into after school and community activities to provide community involvement for the students. Everyone is treated as a unique individual due to small class size and each child is treated with respect and uniqueness. It's so much better than a large school where children are just a number!
