Walnut Hill's teachers insist on good character and teach those skills to the students. They model good behavior and are consistent on demanding it.

I have two children who attend Walnut Hill. The school is one brightest bright spots in DISD. They have some of the most dedicated teachers in the state. That is the strength and the life blood of the school. Many of the teachers go above and beyond the call of duty to help our children. I drive by periodically after 7 and still see cars in the teacher's lot. The school administration seems to be reaching out to the local community more than in recent years. They have increased communication with the neighborhood parents and have created partnerships with civic groups. The campus grounds look so much nicer. Walking the halls, you see new paint and student work all over. When my first started years ago, the building looked like it was stuck in 1932. Today, it's got new technology, spruced up classrooms, and landscaping. Without question, I would send my child to Walnut Hill again

I enrolled my daughter, went out of my way to do a hardship transfer to this so called: " blue ribbon school ". Had her first and second grade teacher wanting to hold her back due to her dyslexia, 2 weeks into 2nd grade, not really wanting to work with her, finally when she is showing some improvement, they deny her, her 3rd year, in which I was not notified. lack of communication from teacher and principal, no meetings or conferences, had to call to find out she was denied due to grades and tardiness, just an excuse to get rid of her, not impressed at all.




- a
While the teachers and teacher aids were extremely helpful and encouraging the new administration lacks communication and shows extreme prejudice against those that help build the school to its known A+ rating. It says something when you have a high staff turnover rate for the 2016-2017 school year, you are pushing families out by creating a uniform change without positive feedback from the school community, and you disbanned all special education programs from the school, to make room for what many sees as a 3 year old daycare center?

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The school is welcoming to parents and has many programs to encourage parental involvement. Walnut Hill has won many national awards and been named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. It is definitely the best school in Dallas ISD!

This school is a diamond in the rough of elementary schools in Dallas Texas! Not only is the proof in the state scores, but when you meet the teacher, or walk in in the halls, and even see how happy the students are you'll know. It's a great school!! Everyone including the afterschool instructor has a vested interest in the students success!
