My son just finished 8th grade at Walnut Springs. He went to a Catholic school for 6th and was not challenged at the Catholic school so we moved him to Walnut. Several of the teachers who teach enriched and accelerated classes are truly exceptional. There are no better middle school teachers in any other school, in our experience. But there can be a lot of chaotic behavior, most typical of the age group. I think the librarian and gifted coordinators were excellent too. The school leadership, guidance department and other school staff were very supportive of our student's needs. Westerville does a good job, in general, of making sure students are challenged and learning. Walnut Springs is consistent with that.

My daughter has went to Walnut Springs for two years now the teachers are good with keeping you up to date on your child progress. The only issues that I have with Walnut is there are a lot of bullies and there is supposed to be a zero tolerence policy but have yet to see it!

I believe that Walnut Springs is an expeptional school. The orchestra is wonderful and the teachers are amazingly hard-working. Im an 8th grader there and I love it dearly!

The academic quality is good. However, due to budget cuts, some very important things have been cut. Nevertheless, teachers are working to make sure that what is taught is high quality. There are a number of extracurricular actvities and clubs for students. Most music opportunities are during the school day. There are lots of great parents here. It would be great to see more of them at PTSA meetings, but those who did show up for things are fantastic.

So far in my sons first year at this school I would have to say the teachers are very involved. many of the teachers supervise after school activities. At the first school dance at Halloween many of the teachers showed up in costume. At curriculum night teachers were all availabale to ask questions to.

I have not been pleased with this school. Teachers have not been very responsive to e-mails and phone calls. They also have difficulty following an IEP. The staff tends to stereotype students here and cater to those who play football or make cheerleading a priority.
