Open Quote This is the best school I have sent my kids to,the teachers are very caring,my kids are in Mrs. Kurlander's and Mrs.VF and they love to go to school.(great teachers) Our principal is a very good leader. I will miss taking my son there as he moves to sixth grade. The first school they have been to that has such a great peacebuilder program which works. I wish other schools would adopt this program. I feel safe taking my kids there. Keep up the good work Lulu Walker Close Quote

Open Quote The teachers and staff at this school have been exceptional in my experience. They really care about the students, and are more than happy to discuss your child's progress and give any extra help needed for the kids in the class to succeed. My son attended this school during his kindergarten through 5th grade years, and my daughter started kindergarten here this year. Happily, most of the staff and teachers are still there from the time my son attended. Walker is tech savvy, with computers and smartboards in the classrooms, and plenty of opportunites for the kids to use them. There is also a great arts program, with plenty of opportunities for the kids to perform, learn about art and music in weekly classes, and even see the symphony perform. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
