Walker Elementary School
Amount of homework: Just right

Through personalized learning each student is being challenged at their level. This method removes common educational issues such as boredom and/or defeat, as each student is challenged at their own pace and understanding. The students are expected to meet, though frequently exceed, the required curriculum levels of achievement.

Absolutely, success contributes to their pride, which is a cornerstone in self-respect. The teachers and staff then follow up with open communication, listening, and say what they'll do and do what they say. Together trust is developed, and with that trust comes respect.

Through Next Generation Learning, one of the core principles is personalized learning. In making this happen, the teachers, student, and parents gain individual understanding of each student. Empathy is understanding.

Wow! Walker Elementary continues to hit the ever improving mark, and have their eyes on the future!! Walker is a truly unique school, and shows what can happen when teachers, students, parents, and administration come together. Our daughter and son are both Next Generation Learners - taught critical thinking, group dynamics, technology, and goal management. We are truly lucky to be a part of such an amazing school, and our children wake up excited to go to school! Thank you to everyone who makes this possible - keep up the great work and your continued commitment to the success of the future leaders!

Open communication, a mix of formal expectations and family caring. It takes a village to raise a child, and this is it in action.

I have two boys that are in third grade and k5 and have attended since k4. The teachers are outstanding. I truly am impressed at their dedication and ingenuity. The classroom atmosphere allows the kids freedom of movement which eliminates boredom. It also allows the teachers to deal with the tiny percentage of morons that shouldn't be there in the first place with minor disruption to the rest of the class. (Yeah I said it. Undisciplined brats whose parents spend more time admiring and comparing their tattoos than parenting their children) The staff are trying new teaching techniques and technologies and getting results. School officials from around the world visit the school constantly to see just what really is going on there. The teachers for specials, music gym and art are well accomplished and inventive. I'm jealous when I hear of what they got to do for specials that day. My boys are proud of themselves and proud of their school. I just wish more of the parents felt the same way, instead of complaining that their children are not delivered to them like a pizza after release. Get off your lazy butt and go hug your kids, you haven't seen them all day! Ah West Allis

Love Walker! Our son has thrived since K5! The staff are so dedicated and go above and beyond! The Next Gen. has allowed our son to be placed at levels where he learns best so he can feel confident. The use of technology since K5 has been a blessing that many schools wish they had.
