About Us

Esther L. Walter was built in 1959 and was named after a teacher, Esther L. Walter, who taught in the Magnolia School District for more than 25 years. The school was the ninth and final school built in the Magnolia School District. Walter is a Gold Ribbon School where our goal is to provide a safe and positive learning environment for all students. To fulfill our goal, the Walter staff provides rigorous Common Core standard-based instruction with integrated technology in order for our students to become 21st century learners. Walter is extremely fortunate to have the support of the community and parents and parents are involved in their student’s education. The district adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is evident when walking through the campus. Students strive to achieve exemplary behavior and are recognized daily, both in classrooms and school-wide, for exhibiting the qualities of SOAR. (Safe, Open arms, Academic, Respectful). Students at Walter are empowered in their learning through the academic supports and special programs provided by the Walter School Staff and outside agencies. Esther L. Walter is an excellent Gold Ribbon school which is recognized for the hard work and dedication of its staff, students, families and community. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education.
