Walnut Heights Elementary School Reviews
We've been in other elementary schools, and really I think the curriculum isnt that much different. I think the test scores indicate more parental involvement. We see a lot of kids that get tutoring, and go into programs, they get a lot of extra help outside of school because the parents can afford it. Typically we've noticed in the more poor neighborhoods the teachers are still decent but the parents are working too much and then dont have the extra money to support academic enrichment.
