Welcome to Walker!
Walker Upper Elementary School is focused squarely on academics in the context of the crucial age group it serves. Children in grades 5-6 enjoy a balanced curriculum that maintains a focus on learning, while also nurturing spontaneity and curiosity. Since early attitudes about school often pave the way to higher education, Walker teachers guide students in their progress toward high school graduation and beyond, delivering support and challenges as needed by the student.

Staff continually assesses what children are learning and what can be done to support them. Midterm tests, benchmark assessments, and reading inventories regularly gather information on student progress and mastery.

Volunteering helps parents connect with their child's school and teachers. As one parents says, “My engagement in the PTO truly helped provide me with a sense of what was going on at the school--to get to know teachers, the administration, and many of the children. The school was no longer a building, but a positive learning environment with committed teachers, administrators and great kids."
