The school is very clean and the staff is creative and inspiring. The principle shows great character and high family morals, which is the kind of role model I am proud that my kid is under.
It is great. Not one complaint about bullys or bad teachers. Very good school.
Overall Walnut Hill is an excellent school! The teacher involvement is outstanding and this is the one reason why I moved my children from Turner to here for elementary school! The leadership from the prinicipal and the parent involvement is amazing and I would recommend this school to any parent who wants their child to have a chance at a great learning experience!
My daughter has been at the Hill for 6 years now and I must say that the education she has received so far has been excellent. Mr Hardison has always made sure that he and his teachers are involved in many programs. And parental support of the school is as good as any non-magnet school you could ever find. The Hill gets a A+ in my book!
I am a student of the hill I have been going there since kindergarten I personaly love it .The staff never gives up on me and some fellow students.My band teacher ,Mr.Tinker never gives us either.Our school has a PTA and has alot of members .We have a football team basketball team and a soft ball team .My math teacher Mrs. Carscadden started a fraturnity called Hornets With Hope . They meet on Tuesdays at 7 am. They also have sac, 4h , top notch ,and more.They have added a hallway , i wing.The parent involment hit the roof this year.
The quality of academic programs is very good at the hill. The musical,sports,and other extracurricular activities are very available. Their art and musical programs are some of the best around, and the directors of the musical programs are very dedicated to what they do, which is teach students how to enjoy playing music. There is plenty of parent involvement but there could be more.Walnut Hill is a really good school; the teachers actually care about what they're doing and they care about they're students. They make learning fun and interesting.The teachers at Walnut Hill love they're jobs because they love children!
Mrs. White moved here to northwest la. after hurricane Katrina and I thank God for her. My son was not excited about starting school and now he loves school and her along with Mrs B (class aide). Mrs White has worked with his speech and honestly loves her job I thank her and God for coming to Walnut Hill and to the principal (Mr. Hardison) for having good taste and a good judgment in hiring this wonderful teacher and friend to the little growing and brilliant minds in the ECE program at Walnut Hill.
My daughter is completing her first year at this school after relocating from St. Tammany Parish following Hurricane Katrina. We have been so pleased with the level of excellence in this school from the bus driver to the office workers, teachers, counselors and principals! Parental involvement is not only welcomed but encouraged. While St. Tammany Parish is lauded as being the 'Best School System in the State'. The schools my daughter has attended cannot compare to the education she received in Third Grade at Walnut Hill. This is a great example how a school should operate. We look forward to returning for Fourth Grade.
My child has gone to Walnut Hill for six years and I would recommend the school to anyone. Mr. Hardison does not tolerate any nonsense. Grandparents Day has a wonderful turnout as do most events. However, the school seems to be bursting at the seams with parking being a problem sometimes but that is not the school's fault. Very high student pride in this school.
When my 8 year old daughter first mentioned she would like to go to Walnut Hill, I admit, I was skeptical at first. From the time she was 3, she had attended Calvary Bapstist and public school did not seem the right thing to do. But we had recently moved to Eagles nest and all the friends she had made went to Walnut Hill. So we enrolled her and have loved it ever since. Thank you Mrs. Jackson for being such a wonderful teacher. Mr. Hardison is more than a principal. He understands our children as well as us parents. I would gladly recommend Walnut Hill to any parent. Thanks Again.
I want to responed to the reveiw given in aug. 2003 About the non-custodial parent. Maybe if alot of non-custodial parents didn't think they were the real parent and try and run the school and everyone in it they could be more involved. I'm a natural parent dealing with a step-parent who thinks they have the right to all my children's information when they really have no rights at the school and mr. Hardison and all his staff has done very well to help protect the rights of my children. So whether you like what the school or the system states that is your problem and your problem alone. And also mr. Hardison nor the staff at the school has ever stopped anyone from coming to school events, if you don't go thats on you. I stand behind mr. Hardison and all his staff one hundred percent!
Very good school. More elective courses are needed for middle school. Courses such as: French, Spanish, Geography, Environment Science, and Law would be a welcome addition.
My Family just moved to this school this year, we came from a highly rated school district, we were very concerned about the sending our two boys to this school. One my children is hearing impared and we were concerned if he would recieve the attention necessary to help him to continue to learn,we were overjoyed to see all the help that the school and district were going to put in place to help him, we think Walnut Hill is a great school, with a great staff and wonderful teachers, and the best principal I have met, I think this school is great.
I think My children are very lucky to attend Walnut Hill. The staff and Mr. Hardison are outstanding motivators the feild of learning, they give all children the same opportunity to get a great education, being a parent of special education child that means alot.
I really think this is the best school. My daughter is going into the 7th grade and has been there every since 1st grade. She passed up a chance to go to Caddo Middle Magnet for her love of that school. Mr.Hardison really is the best principal that school has ever seen!
I think Walnut Hill is one of the Best Schools in Caddo Parish. I thank God that my children had the opportunity to attend this Fantastic School. Mr. Hardison is the Best Principal I know.
Walnut Hill is one of the few schools in the ArkLaTex region that does not allow non-custodial parents equal opportunities to be involved with children. Empathy by the staff for the non-custodial parents would benefit the children most of all. Principal and teachers alike need to realize there are two sides to every story and that the non-custodial parent isn't always the 'monster' the custodial parent makes him/her out to be.
I think this school is terrific! The principal and the teachers are great!
I like the school !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
