About Walnut Elementary SchoolHome of the Patriots
Our Mission at Walnut Elementary School is to challenge all students with diverse educational opportunities to develop a foundation of basic skills for personal, social, and academic growth for lifelong learning.
Walnut Elementary School has been a part of the Emporia community in its present location for over 50 years. It is conveniently located in the northwest-central part of the city in an established neighborhood. Currently, about 280 students attend kindergarten through fifth grade classes at Walnut.
Our building houses 3 kindergarten, 3 first grade, 3 second grade, 2 third grade, 2 fourth grade, and 2 fifth grade classrooms. We hope you will take a few moments to visit our classroom pages to see some of the exciting things that are happening at Walnut Elementary. Learning is enhanced by our full-time computer labs, music education, physical education, library, and ELA classroom. Art classes are provided weekly for students. Students with special needs receive individualized instruction through a variety of programs. Additionally, our school has a well-equipped playground where students can exercise growing bodies.
Walnut’s friendly staff and facility provide a nurturing environment for students to begin their lifelong learning journey. Some of the students attending our school have parents and grandparents who are Walnut alumni. A creative, energetic group of parents support Walnut School through our active Parent Teacher Organization.
