Building Community Through Education in Northwest Arkansas

At the Walton Family Foundation, we believe those closest to the challenges in our schools also have the best solutions. Solving problems starts with engaging communities — so teachers, parents and students themselves can come together and create a shared vision for great schools.

By supporting great schools, great teachers and engaged parents and communities, every student across Northwest Arkansas can access a high-quality education that puts opportunity and a self-determined life within reach.

High-Quality Education Builds Vibrant Communities
What is the role of education in creating one of the most vibrant and inclusive communities in the country?

The group was united in their response: When comes to our schools, the voices of the community must be front and center.
