There is a lot of bullying by students and favoritism by teachers. It seems long county middle school and high school staff are more concerned about discipline than educating students. I think that coaches should remain coaches and hire someone more fit to be a principal. I wish below unsatisfactory 0 stars could be an option.

My daughter is in the 4th grade at Walker. The bus is ridiculous with 4 kids to a seat. I have had issues with students bothering her but allowed her to speak up for herself before calling the school. The bus driver did move her away from the child bothering her. Academically for 4th grade I feel that she could be challenged more. She has straight A's and does well. There is a lack of communication with parents. Many times the school has had events and I did not know about them. Also, they have a behavior party for students with good behavior and offer snacks to students that bring money to school usually while they watch a movie. The school is not terrible but could be better.

So my children have been attending this school for 3 years now, and I have to say, all in all, it is not the worst,MUCH better than Hinesville. I have had numerous issues with bullying, and in some instances it HAS NOT been handled appropriately in my opinion, despite my being an involved, good parent. The Curriculum is lacking ( all of GA) and my kids are not being challenged enough( I give them extra work to their dismay to compensate). Favoritism is thick among administration and certain students, same goes with most small towns. They have nonsense rules regarding water, and bathroom areas, yet do not uphold rules that matter such as checking ID's , or not allowing parents to walk onto campus, as happened with my son who was approached by a parent who went up to him and accused him of hitting his child ( he apologized because it was the wrong kid, if that matters!) who you know is alive and thriving at this school. Bus situation is appalling. There are too few bus drivers, so children are crammed in 3 or 4 to a seat on some routes, mixed k-12 graders! Better schools than hinesville for sure, but stay involved! It will be what you make of it, and you need to be an active parent.

We've been here for a little over 3 yrs and every year the school is getting better and better.Seen so many changes. The principals have been easy to talk to. As have the teachers. Any issues i've ever had with bullies or what I felt was mistreatment/playing favorites or a teacher not doing what i felt was there job.I used the schools "chain of command" I feel if you are a good parent an you truely care about your children then get to the root of the issue on hand. We point fingers and play the blame game instead of doing that,we need to all work together to grow.. keep up the great work!!!

My kids just stared school here this year. We have never had such bad issues with other kids and bullying. I call the school and they just talk to the kids, no matter how often you call and complain. My son has been bullied at the bus stop, on the bus and has had his belongings kicked around at school. The principal just checks into it and nothing more. My daughter has had things stolen and profanity wrote on her papers when she leaves her desk. They do nothing. They continue to let these kids get away with it.

The school has great teachers,There is some favortism among some teachers with certain students that should not be there .There are many soilders children going to this school now. And It would be nice for the school to have a program for soilders children . And not being close to any other family members, I would like for the school to have a little leave way with attedence for childeren of soilders The soilders come home from war and the want to see family like there mom and dad .And they most deffiently need a new building.

My children have been attending this school for two years now and are honor roll students. I feel however that they are not being challenged enough and I'm concerned that when they go to college they will have to take additional classes to be admitted. I've tried to have my children test for the gifted programs however oddly enough they did not score high enough, even though they are continously honor roll students. If I could afford to have my children in private schools, I definately would look at that as a serious consideration.

Walker Middle School has made a lot of progress under principal Vicky Wells. She and her assistant, Heath Crane, make sure that instruction is the number one item each day. The school itself is old, but the teachers work hard to make it comfortable and it is kept clean. The kids are encouraged to learn, but they are also disciplined so learning can take place for the majority. I have no problems with Walker Middle School.
