walnut hill elementary

Modern Mile Dallas is a non-profit corporate organization and we have identified Walnut Hill Elementary School as beneficiary of the tour proceeds. Under the leadership of the new principal, R Chase McLaurin, WHE is using the funds to improve the interior courtyard of the school. The New Courtyard, designed by Bill Bibb of Archiverde LLC, has been planned as an outdoor play and learning space. It will be used to enhance the school's Autism program and also as a butterfly garden for the children to enjoy.
