Walker is truly a community-based school, made so by many wonderful people. Our students are eager to learn and to make a positive difference. Our staff members are committed to child-centered learning, and we work to make sure that every student has his/her needs met. Our parents and community members partner with us, and together we provide excellent learning opportunities for our students.
At Walker, we practice the “Fish Philosophy” (Strand, Christensen & Halper). The four components of this philosophy are: Make Someone’s Day, Choose Your Attitude, Be There/Be Present, and Play. Walker is a great place to learn and grow!
