    Dear Parents and Guardians,

     Welcome back to Walnutwood High School.  We are looking forward to serving your child during the 2021-2022 school year. The teachers will be in-person and on-campus for your meeting however, you may choose to be virtual or in person. We are here to support your student in every way possible!

    If you are interested in enrolling in our school, please contact your current counselor and request a referral to Walnutwood. If your student has an IEP, please work with your current Case manager to have an IEP to determine your students’ academic needs and appropriate placement. All families are required to come to our main office to sign a contract prior to instruction starts.

     We encourage all parents/guardians to attend the first appointment with their child to plan for the upcoming school year.

    We will continue with the 9th grade Pathfinders Program. The purpose of Pathfinders is to prepare freshmen in the necessary study, reading, and writing skills to be successful in Walnutwood’s Independent Study program. All students will be enrolled 2 days a week and will take English 1A, Biology A, Fitness 1 (with online content), elective, and an appropriate 9th-grade math course based on i-Ready scores. Students who successfully complete these 4-5 courses will earn 25 credits and be able to move on to the regular independent study program in the Spring. During the semester, students will participate in mini-lessons in English and math, as well as planning, calendaring, and developing effective study skills. 

    Students who are in 10th-12th grade meet with their teacher for 1 45-minute block of time a week. Students should anticipate 4-5 hours of homework daily.

    All students are encouraged to attend support labs from 12:45-3:45 to receive additional help as needed.

     We are no longer serving middle school students.
