Walker Charter Academy Ratings & Reviews

I have two children at WCA and I am very satisfied with their education. The discipline is strict. They are progressed appropriately and communication with teachers is excellent.

This is not a school for a child with Special Needs or emotional needs. They want to focus on academic excellence and they have little tolerance for a child with any issues not relating to academics.

"Today I reach my breaking point. Walker Charter Academy has MAJOR cracks in their system when it comes to IE kids. My grandson spends more time in the hall, on detention from the playground, in the principal's office, or sent home from school when his teacher is absent or in classrooms other than his homeroom than he gets opportunity to learn.Today, my grandson's BIRTHDAY, I go into deliver birthday treats to his classroom to find him sitting alone in the hall. He had been sent there for yelling at kids who were teasing him about his now being 9-year-old (""Should be more like 9,999 years old"" said a student that finally made him start yelling). At what point do the children who ""through the first punch"" get in trouble before the one who ""gets caught throwing the 2nd one""?This is the final straw for me. He has gotten in trouble several times for retaliating against ""teasing"" (per WCA principle). At what point to they acknowledge it as ""bullying"" towards a child who is documented emotionally sensitive and on a IEP that is constantly overlooked. I refuse to let WCA let my grandson fall though the cracks and become a statistic negative because they cannot break away from their ""school of excellence"" academic standards long enough to allow a child to have their emotions because they can't seem to control the behaviors of the instigators. Angry is an understatement. A grievance will be filed, and maybe even the Board of Education be notified."

I believe Walker Charter should be one of the first choice schools listed for the Walker area. The teachers are excellent at what they do. They care for, and laugh with our kids. Their acdemics are incredible. I see that kids are challenged when they need challenging, and helped when they need extra help. There is a Iot of parent involvement, and they encourage it. I think Walker Charter has done a tremendous job of making their school low on bullying issues. I asked my daughter the other day if she ever felt picked on. She couldn't recall a single time that she had been made fun of. Their entire culture at Walker Charter has created an atmosphere of kids who believe they are friends, and should give each other mutual respect.

I have found with many schools it's becoming more and more about warehousing kids. At Walker I feel they invest in not only the education but who the child grows to be.
