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!
New principal needed!!! She does nothing but fill space. Get someone in there that truly wants to make a difference and is a great leader. The school should really work on teaching students about being bullied and how to handle a bully. It should not be tolerated and very much needs to be addressed!!! Times have really changed and this school needs to catch up!!
Please keep the principal's secretary from answering phones or speaking to parents! If you greet her with a smile you can count on a grumble and a scowl! This is known by everyone and she seems to not care or have any social awareness. Come on Walnut Grove, we can do better!
I agree with the previous reviews. Principal is so egoistic. You will not see any improvement academically, if your kid needs extra support. Kids are constantly bullied, Principal does nothing but fill space. Really someone has to watch these public school systems. Poor kids are suffering everyday.
This school definitely does not deserve the good rating it has. My experience with them was awful, they are very un-professional, during my son's a.r.d or i.e.p the principal was talking on a walkie-talkie, texting and walking in and out of the room while the therapists were talking to me about their observations, the ot and speech pathologist were wispering and giggling while the teacher was talking about her observations. The diagnostician was very heartless while talking to me about my son not being independent when I die (he has autism). They are also very dishonest, they do not know how to work with a child in an individual way, my youngest son has adhd but he is very smart, always been 1 year ahead at reading. Well, not at this school, he finished the year at the exact same reading level he started with (he was there for 3 1/2 months). Also saw the counselor wiping her hand on her pants after shaking my hand. Academically did not see an improvement, they came out the same as they went in. My youngest son was constantly bullied and the teacher was in complete denial, she did nothing about it and even stuck up for a girl that threw a bean pillow at my son's face.
