We are committed to providing a quality educational experience to each and every child that comes through our doors.   I can promise you Limestone Walters will provide:

  • An outstanding staff that puts children first

  • A rigorous and relevant curriculum

  • Open and timely communication about your child’s progress

  • Appropriate interventions to help your child meet his or her goals

  • A Board of Education that provides resources in a fiscally conservative philosophy that does not jeopardize programs or student services

  • Opportunities that extend beyond the classroom to provide a well-rounded educational experience for your son or daughter

There is so much more to the school experience than just test scores.  At Limestone Walters we are committed to providing the best possible opportunities, and with the help and support of our parents, we are able to do just that.  

The staff and I thank you for choosing our school and trusting us with your children each and every day.
