My child has done excellent at this school. I was skeptical at first because we were transferring from a really big school to a small school but my child has done excellent here. I would recommend this school to anyone and color is not a factor my child is black and she has very excellent grades her teachers are wonderful at first she didn't like it because she thought her teachers showed favoritism to only kids who parents work there but me and her dad sat her down to explain to her not to worry about everyone else just be herself and that she was there to get a good education and be the best person she can be.
In response to the person who said that Walnut was all white and racist...you have got to be kidding me. Anyone who believes this needs to go ask any black person in Walnut. Its a southern town yes but race is not an issue here. We are united together as one to better ourselves and each other. Its about team work here not color!
This is one of the best schools the state of MS can offer! Pedagogy reigns supreme here! The teachers are student-centered and goal-oriented. Through best practice methods and varied teaching styles, the teachers encourage and challenge all students daily. One problem the school faces is a lack of administrative leadership. To be an excellent school, you need an excellent leader. The school is missing this important ingredient. It is the key reason I did not give the school five stars.
I believe that Walnut is the best school in Tippah County. As a student of Walnut I know that they have the best teachers in the state such as Coach Love Mr.Meeks, Mrs.Newsom, and many many more. I also know for a fact that the teachers at Walnut do not choose favorites and they also help all the children that want help. A child has to want to help themselves before they will allow anyone else to help them. I would recommend this school to anyone.
