School Description

The first building at Walnut Grove was built in 1920. The school was the community center for all kinds of activities other than school related programs and ball games. Walnut Grove’s name comes from the fact the building was once located among many black walnut trees. Most of the large walnut trees have been cut down for expansion of the school facilities.

In 1951 the old building was torn down and a new block building was built. A new gym was added in 1961. A library and new classrooms were added in the 1970’s. In 1989, a new lunchroom and classrooms were built. A new media center, special education classrooms, and teacher restroom facilities have also been constructed

Walnut Grove is a K-5 school. Its principal, faculty, and staff have accepted the responsibility of providing quality education to the students of the Walnut Grove community

Parent Involvement
