    "As far as public schools go, especially in CA this is a top notch campus. Great teachers, wonderful and very involved principal. I transferred my child from private school and was so hesitant, but I couldn't be happier!"

    "This school is overrated. The class sizes are around 31-34. Teachers are ok. Parent volunteers are great but its all the same 100 or so parents who keep it all going. Its a nice school but you can get the same across town and with a lot less homeownership cost."

    "Walnut Acres is an excellent school in a supportive and safe neighborhood. There is an enormous amount of parent involvement in the classrooms as well as on the Parent Faculty Club. The vocal music program supported by the PFC is outstanding. The Principal provides strong guidance and is always coming up with ways to improve the school academically and socially. The teachers are dedicated and genuinely enjoy teaching. I would give the school 5 stars if it were in a smaller district, ideally the 5 schools that are in Walnut Creek that are currently in the MDUSD."

    "Class sizes are quite large (34 kids per class in the upper grades) and could go up to 40. The school district is struggling and sadly, it shows. GATE (gifted) funding has been averted to other areas as have funds for other programs. There are many furlough days throughout the year because of the districts financial issues. Test scores are high purely because of demographics. The parents and many teachers care, but they can't rectify the school districts problems and we are told there is no sign things will improve anytime soon."

    "This school could use more parent involvement and a better academic program as well as a better school district. This school/students are suffering from there school district which has no $$$ for great programs, teachers and extra activities."
