18 Parent Reviews for Walnut Acres Elementary School

We have been very happy with our son's progress since starting in Kindergarten up through 2nd grade. All of his teachers have been outstanding, as have the parental helpers.

As far as public schools go, especially in CA this is a top notch campus. Great teachers, wonderful and very involved principal. I transferred my child from private school and was so hesitant, but I couldn't be happier!

This school is overrated. The class sizes are around 31-34. Teachers are ok. Parent volunteers are great but its all the same 100 or so parents who keep it all going. Its a nice school but you can get the same across town and with a lot less homeownership cost.

This school could use more parent involvement and a better academic program as well as a better school district. This school/students are suffering from there school district which has no $$$ for great programs, teachers and extra activities.

The instruction is well rounded - parents are really involved. They still include music which is essential for a well rounded and conscious growing child. And...they rock!!

We have 2 sons going Walnut Acres. The teachers here are so awesome. They are dealing with the budget problems with a 'make lemonade out of lemons' mentality. For instance, the 3rd grade no has 10 more students per classroom. Well, this meant that there ended up being 2 classrooms empty. So, the school ...  Read more

Our family moved to Walnut Creek from San Francisco this school year and we have been very happy with the high standard of learning, teacher engagement, parent participation and student behavior. Our boys have bonded well with the other students and as well as their teachers making the transition from ...  Read more
