Why I Choose WHE

Walnut Hill Elementary is everything we ever hoped for in a school community. The education is rigorous, yet creative. Our son is learning much about the greater world we live in, and his fundamentals are far advanced of our expectations for his age. This is his second year in the dual language TAG program, and he is absorbing Spanish like a sponge. It is impressive to hear him flow back and forth in his communication using both English and Spanish words, and he is very proud of his pronunciation. The administration and teachers at Walnut Hill Elementary go out of their way to make sure that each child and family is valued. No issue is too small or too large to bring to them. They are always ready to support and engage with you anytime you ask. On top of all of this, the entire school community provides a loving and caring environment. We value the many friendships we have made here. We chose to send our children to Walnut Hill three years ago, and it has been a better experience then we hoped it would be.

WHE’s small size, combined with its broad embrace of families of all backgrounds, provides a vibrant backdrop for the exceptional instruction provided by its fantastic teachers and staff. WHE educators show up early and stay late for their students; their enthusiasm for academic excellence and social-emotional growth is infectious. This combination made my daughters feel confident enough to take academic and extracurricular risks that have broadened their horizons in ways I did not think possible. How lucky we are to have WHE as our neighborhood school!
