This school needs help. The administration of this school is terrible, especial Dr. Arbetter. The principal needs to be replaced. My children transferred here from Lawson on Charbonier and the difference is night and Day. Lawson is a wonderful school, full of caring teachers and office staff. Walker is not. Some of the teachers are good, but for the most part they need to be replaced. Even the Scouts (boys & girls) at walker are messed up. In the past 2 years there has been at least 3 instances of leaders stealing money from the troop. I would not recommend this school unless you want to traumatize your kids!
My son is in the third semester of his 1st grade year and they are still working on patterns in their math unit (he worked on these for 2 years in preschool, and then again in kindergarten). My understanding is that teachers are strictly bound by District- determined curriculum and have no flexibility in what they teach (at least for math & science units). Not the fault of the teachers, but they really aren't able to adjust lessons to meet the needs of the students.
Walker is the best school in the district. They have top notched teacher with the skills for success. My daugther has gone their for 4 years. We love it! I would recommend this school to anyone one looking for a school for excellence.
Walker is currently educating my youngest of 4 children in the district. It has proven itself repeatedly to properly prepare them for the upper grades and the ciriculum in comparison to the private schools is overwhelming better.
