This school is very highly rated (Top 10 in the State of Texas) by the Children At Risk Research Organization. Parent organization, WGES PTO is top-notch. Many agree that Walnut Grove is one of the most supportive campuses in the area for your child or grandchild to attend.

I cannot believe all these negative comments. Really? This is a great school with caring and attentive teachers! My son has attended this school from kindergarten. He enjoys his teachers and has received an excellent start to his education.

Not a good choice for everyone. If you have average or below average kids then come to this school. They sure will teach and bring your kids up. If your kid is very slow then they'll make you repeat a grade or two. If you have advanced or high above average kids, don't come here. They have nothing for your kids and they don't care. Your kids will be sitting around waiting for others to catch up. The GT program is pathetic 1.5 hr a week and some weeks none. We've been here 3 years and finally made a decision to leave. Now we're regretting moving here to Southlake because of the school's rating!
