I have no idea how this school has received such high ratings. Their care for children is unacceptable. When children are driven to and from the school, count on them being sent to walk to the car, van or bus by themselves -- unsupervised. The office staff simply takes them to the front door, turns around and goes on about their business. This is heartbreaking, especially for those who have smaller children. Teachers vent openly about parents.. in front of other parents. Some of the teachers appear simply annoyed by children and there is a real inconsistency with how materials are given to children.

Absolutely love this school. We transferred our child mid-year last school year. Best decision ever!

The 'Next Generation' environment is not a good fit for all kids. Seems that if your child doesn't 'thrive' they're labeled. Each child is an individual, but the teachers seem to want them all to be the same. Educators need to open their eyes and help the kids thrive, especially those that need it the most. Watch out if your child is in this type of 'learning' environment.

the teachers, and staff are awesome...the next generation learning environments are really helping my children to excel. There is always something going on through the PTA for families to do, and the afterschool programs are great!

Great progressive school that is now implementing next generation learning. I have a 3rd grader who has thrived in that learning environment. Teachers are amazing and consistently go above and beyond. My daughter starts kindergarten there in the fall and I couldn't be happier.

We love Walker ! We did a lot of school research and decided on Walker. The teachers, staff, PTA and parent involvement are all amazing. They are very progressive in their teaching methods and technology. The class sizes are small and they still offer all the "specials" like art, music and more. We couldn't be happier.
