Walnut Creek Elementary School 5

I love how much support the school gives the students. I enjoy the open and frequent communication between the teachers, staff, and parents. I can't give enough positive accolades to the school. Oh! and the administration and their administrative staff, they are so friendly and informative. My son loves each day.

Ms. Khan has made my son's transition into the state as well as in to Kindergarten very smooth and enjoyable.

I am so happy that one of the parents came to me and warned me about this school and their administration. Had she not, I would be more frustrated than I am now. There were several parents that I asked about the school and they all said the same thing. My child would be lost in the system and that is exactly what I refuse to let happen.

These are younger generation teachers that are fresh out of school and have no clue how to handle children. They are more like big sisters as opposed to teachers. They need more quality training.

Amount of homework: Not enough

The homework that the school sends home is often irrelevant to what the children have learned in class.

Definitely! They are very determined and very persistent to ensure that your child is labeled. Do not let them do this.

The school only develops respect in its students if you demand it, otherwise they are there for a paycheck.

If your child is not a robot and perfect, they will be labeled as troublesome and they will find ways to suspend them instead of consulting with the parent first.

Some of the office staff will like to make the principal look good so that they can maintain Title 1 status.

Stay involved in every activity for your child. If a problem arises, address it immediately because if you do not, the school teachers and the principal will try to label your child and tarnish their records. As a working parent, this can be difficult but if you do not, you will regret it. Be careful of the principal as well. Not to be trusted.
