Walnut Heights' Overview
Walnut Heights Elementary School, nestled in the foothills of Mount Diablo, enjoys the 3-acre Nature Area adjacent to the Walnut Creek Open Space. This natural setting provides the backdrop to the school that serves approximately 400 students and their families in transitional kindergarten (TK) through fifth grade. Built in 1952 and modernized in 1998, the school district added outdoor learning areas in 2003 and a new amphitheater in 2004. Bond monies provide continuous improvement of the school site. The playground was enlarged and renovated during the 2007-08 school year.
