Poor School. Needs to put as much effort into education as it does in athletics.

My son has used the virtual school program twice and I have found the teachers to go beyond their job to help him out in any way that they can. He has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, so sometimes it takes some extra explaining, some extra understanding and a little boost to his self confidence to get him through. I can always count on the teachers in the virtual school to want the best for the student and to help them achieve it. I would love to see more virtual classes in the future. Thank you, S. Reynolds

Teachers don't return emails, with the rare exception of just a few who actually care. Most of the newer, younger teachers don't give a flip about anything, very unprofessional. Students there have said the interior design teacher actually sends students out to get her fast food, during school hours. Mr. Hughes is a great guy, but he needs to clean house. They need some decent math and science teachers. Only a few like Yates, King and Jenkins are any good. They really need some decent math teachers. Parents can't be involved because most teachers don't communicate.

Walton high scool is an wonderful school. Every single teacher cares about you and your academics. its a wonderful experience to have the teachers that i have there. I am currently a senior and i have enjoyed every year. Mr. Hughes is a great principal. He interacts with the students on a daily basis and even at the meetings he delivers a strong message about the academics. The guidence counselor is also very great. She lets me know what i need to do to graduate or even what scholarships i can even achieve. Just a terrific school all the way through.

This school is an amazing plan for the future of its students. They offer the opportunity to take classes over at the WCDC (or walton career, development center) I cant think of a better school to send your children.

I took my children out of this school and drive about 80 miles every day to take my children to school in a different county. I have faith that Mr. Hughes will turn things around. He did a wonderful job with the Middle School.

The school is a good school. I do beleive myself though that it wont be like that for the next year's to come. Because of the new principal Mr.Hughes. I didnt like him when my studet went to Middle School and I wont like it now. The teachers are great. Some of the people in the office though seem to pick and choose what students they seem to like better and give them alittle more lee way with things.

Walton high is a very personal and exceptionally well staffed facility. The teachers are very down to earth and provide a very comforting feeling with the way they teach.

A great school overall even though administration seems to value sports more than academics. However, although administration places heavy emphasis on sports, most teachers continue to maintain high academic standards.
