I am a grandparent and aunt of 6 children at Walton and I would not have chosen any other school for my children at this particular time. Not only is the staff prepared academically, but they care about other areas of the childrens' lives as well. My hat goes off to Walton Academy and its staff.
I am a parent of 2 children that attend this school and having come from a traditional public school, have found this environment to be wonderful for my children. The teachers and administrators are wonderful and have a real focus on the individual student and his or her overall growth.
I have taken the time to read all of the postings about Walton Academy. Since this school year has begun there is a vast difference in opinions from the previous school year. Walton Academy may not look like your typical school because it is NOT! It is UNIQUE, ONE OF A KIND, and a PHENOMENAL learning environment. It has the most dedicated and caring group of teachers. The teachers work extremely hard to make Walton Academy a success. The amount of hard work, dedication, and personal time that the faculty and staff contribute to making the school an A+ school is noble. In my eyes, this school is a blessing.
Walton Academy is a great charter school because it embraces the artistic side of each child. It is a proven fact that the arts add dimension to the learning process. Children involved in the arts traditionally do better in school when there is a combination of academics and arts. WAY TO GO WAPA!!!
