A rich performing arts and fine arts program as well as physical education and hands-on science learning opportunities complement our strong academic program. Our Character Counts program provides guiding principles to support our students’ social and emotional development. Walnut Acres is a dynamic community of talented, eager learners, dedicated, creative staff, and active, supportive families. The success of our school is a testimony to our shared vision and our united commitment to support our children to become the best that they can be.
