This tiny school has teachers that are compassionate and engaging. Teachers get to know parents and make students feel involved and considered. Below-standard test scores are disappointing. School performance was the major selling point when I purchased my home in 06. What changed? For one, I see the homework as terribly redundant and unimaginative. 2nd and 3rd graders come home with worksheet after worksheet and daily assignments that lack creativity. They are expected to read every day so that can be an opportunity for exploration and challenge, however, it is otherwise my impression that the cirriculum is quite bland. When I was a kid, we raised chicks in our 2nd grade classroom, created a massive 3-D solar system in 4th, and looked at algae under a microscope in 6th. Lessons were interactive and clever, sometimes challenging, and teachers guided us to ask questions about the world. But it's simply not that way at this school. I ask myself, is it a Common Core problem, or is it a WSS problem? As a parent, I feel deeply saddened by this.

This school has some very good teachers, and it is a small school which makes it very nice to get to know everyone. I think they could really use some more parent involvement, I think that it would help if maybe the school itself could find a way to involve parents more.

Walnut Street School is a wonderful small school. The teachers are very attentive to the students individual needs.
