k-8 school

Walker Butte K-8 Elementary School was donated exclusively by George Johnson.  Due to lack of funding for new construction, George felt a moral obligation to not only donate the land but construct a brand new elementary school for the ever growing community of what's now San Tan Valley. Walker Butte K-8 is a public school located in San Tan Valley, AZ. It's one of 8 elementary schools in the Florence Unified School District. Walker Butte K-8 operates from July 25 to May 31. It serves 1,400 students from preschool to 8th grade, and has an overall student-to-teacher ratio of 17:1. In addition to standard statewide class curriculum, Walker Butte K-8 offers gifted and talented classes. Special education programs are available at this school.
