This is a great school with few of the great teachers in Pleasanton, California. Involvement of parents are also welcomed by every school staff.

This school is fantastic. It has an active and engaged new principal that relates well to K-5 age children as well as parents. The principal is well-liked by the parents and positive and supportive. The parent community supports the school, and the teachers are enthusiastic. The office staff always seems to be friendly and engaged. Also, I haven't seen the impatience, raised voices and lack of respect towards teachers, students and parents that is happening at other elementary schools in Pleasanton.

Our daughter is entering 3rd grade and our son Kindergarten. We moved here a year ago specifically to take advantage of the excellent academic, nurturing educational opportunities Walnut Grove can provide. The staff, teachers and principal are incredibly supportive, positive and affective. The community of parents and families is exceptional. Each is glad to be a part of the school and their enthusiastic involvement supports their attitude. We're very pleased.

It has been a great experience for my kids, who are attending Walnut Grove this year (we moved in recently). The school has been a pioneer of innovative programs, such as JiJi math (non-verbal spatio temporal reasoning), the Discovery program (multi-age learning with structure), and the concept of Renzulli (parents spend a few hours sharing their skills or teaching kids to have fun, from crochet to flag football). So far our experience has been that Walnut Grove tends to foster a community feel, with great kids, involved parents, excellent teaching and strong leadership.

The Grove is magical - great things happen here - there is always a buzz of excitement in the air - you are always greeted by smiles and hugs - the Grove is a place where a very special school community thrives.

I am a teacher and was a parent of children of Walnut Grove Elementary. The principal is so supportive of the students, parents and staff. The teachers and staff consistantly go above the call of duty. The parents put in many hours volunteering and the students come to school ready to learn! What a blessing! We have a lot of extracurricular activities before and after school... intervention classes for those who could use some extra support, Jiji Math, Chess, Spanish, D.I., Roots and Shoots, a variety of clubs... just to name a few. What a great place to work! What a great place for children!

A more committed principal can't be found! He's worked wonders with the school, and the children. The teachers are all very caring. My daughter has resource support, which is also an excellent program. Lots of activities to build a strong sense of community. Parents are very involved.
