Luke Cameron is a special needs child. He has been accepted and loved by everyone at Walnut Grove. He loves to come to school and is becoming more like the other children. He has made special friends who even sign with him. Thank you. Luke's grandmother, Sharon Cameron

Excellent, love this school! the teachers and staff are wonderful, all the way down to the bus drivers. Very detail oriented. My children love going to this school.

Walnut Grove is an excellent school. The teachers and administrators are professional, attentive and caring. Communication is excellent. Academics at this school are very strong as reflected in the state testing scores. Art, music, PE, computers and guidance are part of the daily routine. Additionally clubs such as track, jump rope and chorus are available before school. Parent involvement in the PTA, class parties and field trips are phenomenal. And the new principal Kate Donnelly is very good at her job. She is caring towards the children and attentive to the parents.

Walnut Grove thankfully never had to resort to "travelling" art and music as mentioned by a reviewer on this site. Also, it is not longer at 850 enrollment thanks to the opening of a new school a couple of years ago. I believe the enrollment is about 500, and it does not seem at all crowded. The administration, teachers, parents, students are all TOP NOTCH here. Kudos especially to the "specials" teachers in music, art, and PE. They are all fantastic and clearly love what they do. Of note: student voted to change "Rainbow Warriors" to "Walnut Grove Grizzlies."

It is the best - Teachers, Administration, Parental Support and most of all Students! Go WGE Rainbow Warriors!

The only reason it gets an average rating is because of size. Due to the increase in students over 850 now. The art room and the music room will now be 'traveling' to individual classrooms. Imagine a school play where your child is one of 140 students. It's CROWDED. However the staff, children, location, security, and special programs are way above average. Maybe that's why its so crowded.... the secret got out.

This is our first year at Walnut Grove, and we could not be happier. The transition for our third grader has been so smooth, largely in thanks to her wonderful teacher. The teachers, administration, and parents go above and beyond, which helps make this a phenominal elementary school.

As we start our 6th year at Walnut Grove, we can't say enough good things about the school or it's teachers for our children. Choices for private and public schools in the area are all great but we researched and chose to move to our current neighborhood because it's zoned for WGES. Excellent parent involvement, teachers, test scores, and great students, as well.
