Campus Goals

The community of Walker Elementary is dedicated to creating an atmosphere in which students, parents, and teachers work collaboratively to build the foundation that supports each child in achieving his/her full potential. This environment promotes learning opportunities that enable our students to become effective communicators, competent problem solvers, self-directed learners, responsible citizens, and quality producers.
