From the beginning, now Principal Dahlquist supported my son in joining the AU-SLC class at Walnut Bend and we had many challenges starting in 1st grade. Now my son is a well-adjusted 3rd grader actively mainstreaming in a typical classroom with the support of his SLC teacher Mrs. Shaw. Mrs. Shaw is in constant communication about support for Jacob. He's been very successful with Mrs. Gilio and his new friends in 3rd grade. I am so grateful for their guidance, support and wisdom. The SLC class at this school is a rare gem in the HISD system. My only concern now is finding an equally exemplary middle school after 5th grade!
Walnut Bend is the worst Elementary I have ever dealt with. I can never speak to anyone when I call. I have left my number more than once for the principal to call me and she never does. The administrative staff is very rude and never seem to have any answers or useful information.
