Walnut Creek Elementary School District Reviews

1 review
The exercise policy is a bit too much because some kids have different weight.I feel like the school district thinks that all the kids are fit and skinny and thinks they can do exercise more than anyone else.This kind of is stereotypical of the SD. it seems like they are promulgating excessive studying because they say HW shouldn't be less than 30 minutes and if it is,your child needs to get help....They also do excessive tests on students like hearing and speech(?!?).They also don't have the best picks for staff of some school because there might be a principal in the entire SD who thinks he/she rules the school.That is very unparliamentary,and I think they should vote on staff.I feel children getting stressed probably by a little mishap(game balls in the lawn and talking with a friend) that the heads RAGE over.WCI is the best,however,with awesome,kind staff who really care.WCI really helped me learn more than the elementary schools.
