Walnut Valley Unified School District has definitely prepared me for my time in college. The teachers would really help and prepare students for the rigors of college by assigning work to us that would are roughly around college level. I can’t thank the staff enough for what they have done to prepare us for our futures. Aside from academics and college readiness, there was a wide variety of clubs that students were able to involve themselves in. The atmosphere was very positive and the student population was very diverse. There are plenty of sports for students to join. Overall, my experience with this school district was fantastic, however, the only reason I did not give it five stars was the food quality and selection had a lot of room for improvement. Furthermore, Walnut Valley Unified School District was an amazing stepping stone to my future, and can definitely be a stepping stone for future students as well.
Ever since elementary school, I have been a part of the Walnut Valley Unified School District, a choice I would never regret. This distict gives students the opportunity to transfer from ther assigned district to theirs through the DOC system, and I am one who is taking this opportunity. What I admire and appreciate about this district is that it focuses highly on academics and creates well-rounded students. Because of the diversity in this city, I am able to see different cultures and many friendships. Luckily, the students and parents willingly motivate each other to strive for improvements and maximize a student’s learning experience. Moreover, all of the teachers I have had really connect with students and allow us to learn. In high school, I am able to participate in special academic programs and clubs that other schools may not offer such as the AP and IB programs. I appreciate the environment of this district and hope that it continues to grow.
