My daughter enrolled at Wallace in 2013; I'm grateful that this is our area school! Parents involvement is highly encouraged in all aspects! My child is reading beyond her level and progressing in math. Daily practice work and books are sent home with the children. Mrs. Whitaker is an awesome kindergarten teacher; she's opened parents conference as needed. I look forward to more years at Wallace. Keep in mind that parents are the chief pilot to their children academic success!

Wallace is a terrific neighborhood school! The teachers are engaged and passionate about their craft. WE has a tremendous network with their involved PTA parents that and opportunities abound. As with any school if parents have the flexibility to volunteer and help, it only enhances the education of all the pupils! When the water rises in the bay, all the boats go up! If parents got involved, all the kids would benefit!

I taught at Wallace years ago and am very involved there now as a parent. When you are at the school all the time you see the dedication and love for the students FAR BEYOND what is expected in a "job" from every teacher on staff and administration. Barbara Edwards is one of the most dedicated teachers I have ever seen ( she lives at WAllace after school and on the weekends) and our principle Debbie Evans is one that considers our school her mission and treats it with love, compassion and kindness that makes it home for our kiddos and for the families that entrust their children to their care! The key to knowing about what goes on at Wallace is to be involved - very involved and then it is evident that there is no better place to be than Wallace. I look forward to 7 more years there!

As a Wallace alumni and mother of 3 attendees, I can't say enough about how great this school, the teachers and the community involvement is there!

Due to its strong PTA and a great principal in Debbie Evans, Wallace is probably one of the best elementary schools in Dallas, outside of the Park Cities. Unlike those schools, however, Wallace has a diverse population, both in ethnicity and socioeconomics, which makes for a more well-rounded, and realistic, experience for my kids. Parent involvement is encouraged, and a spot there is high demand among RISD teachers.

Administration has ruined the quality of education and student care.

We have an extrodinary group of teachers that truly care about educating students! Together with very strong parental involvement, including the PTA, and a wonderful campus in the heart of a lovely residential area, Wallace is the place to be. Congratulations on 50 wonderful years of educating in Lake Highlands!

Wallace has some of the most active parents in the area. It would not be the same without the parents encouraging the teachers and students.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
