    Students learn best when provided with a safe and secure environment where they have a good balance of challenge and support. We are committed to meeting the needs of diverse learners at Walnut Hills Elementary. It is our goal to educate students in the least restrictive environment while challenging them by setting high expectations of student success, presenting engaging learning activities, and promoting opportunities to foster self-determination skills. Our special education team includes a Learning Disabilities Specialist, Speech-Language Pathologist, School Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, and School Nurse. The team is available to assist teachers in making classroom modifications and accommodations, providing teaching strategies, and suggesting classroom management approaches. Our support also includes providing fair evaluations, transition services, and standards based goals to help students learn and grow to their potential. We strive to aid students in developing the skills and abilities that will allow them to flourish in any situation whether in school, work, or the surrounding community.
