2 reviews for Walnut Heights Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on June 08, 2007
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Teacher: spoke sarcastically to parent, disrespects parents wishes, tells parent how to be a parent, puts glitter/lotion on students without permission. Doesn't tell parents what food is given to child. Gives kids toys every end of the week. Allows each kid to have a free hit each day (a kid hits another kid they can't report it until it happens the second time). Allows sleepovers in classroom, pays no attention to who the kid leaves with after school
    School: has parties way too often for birthdays/holidays + "because I can parties", begs for donations way too much, no bus for field trips or drop off/pick up--not to mention, parents who are all in your business
