While this school may have some satisfactory classes and resources, especially in science, it absolutely fails as a mentor to those who are twice exceptional. It also has a subtle religious undertone.

Over the past few years Walker has gone down. The football team has crashed and they are just now starting to level out. The teachers and staff have started to care less and less about the students and more about themselves.

The academic programs at Walker High School are outstanding. AP classes are now offered, and Walker has produced at least one National Merit Finalist in each of the last five years. The faculty has exceptional credentials. The teacher-student ratio is very low, especially in advanced/honor classes. Activities are plentiful, with a girls' Anchor Club that has placed in the top 3 internationally. The Anchor Club sponsor is the 2007 International Sponsor of the Year. The Key Club is the oldest active Key Club in the state of Alabama. Walker's athletic program boasts the 2006-2007 State 5A Boys' Tennis Champions; girls' tennis finished 2nd in state. I have a child who just graduated, and she was very well prepared for college, both academically and socially. I highly recommend Walker High School.

As a former student of Walker High School, I can say that I received a quality education that prepared me for my undergraduate and graduate studies. Teachers at Walker are highly qualified to teach their respective subjects. Counselors aid students in choosing a proper path after graduation. Walker is comparable to over-the-mountain schools in Birmingham as well as an excellent school to send any student.

I think Walker High was a very positive experience both from a social and an academic perpective. The science and math programs stick out in particular, as the labs have better than usual equipment for the high school level. Computational resources are excellent, as I revist campus every once in awhile, I seem to always notice new computer equipment. As I mentioned earlier, social interaction is plentiful as well. Dozens of clubs and sporting opportunities exist, so everyone should find a place to fit in. Most of Walker's shortcomings come in from the administation level. I only had to endure one year with the current assistant principal. Also, a lot of those great Science/Math/Computer resources aren't being expoited appropriately in the curriculum. Why no programming classes or 2nd semester chemistry?

I attended Walker High School from 1998-2002. After receiving my education at Walker, I was very prepared to enter college. The only downside to Walker is that they do not offer Advanced Placement classes. Teachers are mostly helpful, although the administration is lacking. The principal doesn't seem to be involved, and the assistant principal focuses on the wrong methods in helping students succeed by stringently punishing students who simply need a reprimand. Overall, Walker High School is the best place to receive and education in Walker County.

I went to this school my freshman year in 2003-2004. I would say this would be the best school to go to in walker. But after transfering to my new high school, Walker was very disappointing. The teachers are pretty cool, but the Assistant principal is very disliked and has no control over the students. The rules are very over the top if you ask me. This school has no pride other than the cheerleaders, football team, and somewhat the band. The teachers spread roumors and they can make up some lies to. I am very glad I left there, my new school is alot better. Better people, teachers are somewhat not as good, but the technical classes are way better. Now I have a chance of getting certifications during my high school. The students at walker are mostly cool, mainly the band.

I graduated from Walker in 1999. In my opinion it is the best school for anyone to attend. The teachers really prepare the students for college and the extra cirricular programs are excellent. I would definitely let my children attend Walker. Also, there are a lot of scholarships available from this school.

When I visited this school, I seen it to be a well- structured school. The people there were well mannered, and you couldn't ask for a nicer staff. They were very encouraging to the children as the walk down the halls to there next class.
