High achieving school recognized nationally! Test scores and alumni achievements prove this over and over again.

There were a lot of students who agree with me about this school, and they helped my son get through it. They stuck together to help each other get through the pain.

They are effective at killing your students self esteem and making them feel like a pile of garbage. That's what they they are good at.

They give so much homework, that the students don't even have time to meditate on what they learned. Students nred to have fun too, and they won't at this school.

Respect for themselves! The kids don't respect each other. "Shut up fatty" I heard my son called.

Very hard and very high achieving. One of the best in the country according to national rankings.

To those who choose to denigrate Walton for lack of diversity I can only suggest "Open your eyes and look around." I attended a packed house rising 9th grader parents only orientation and saw an extremely culturally diverse audience. At lesser schools many parents don't even show up, much less to standing room only capacity. The curriculum options, staff support, external foundation (to fund class size reduction and programs unfunded by state or county) are all exceptional. This comes not only from my observations that orientation night, but from extensive conversation with parents of kids who have passed thru Walton doors into stellar collegiate experiences and rewarding careers. If such results are not satisfactory to you, and you will only be pleased by a higher percentage of certain colors of the rainbow, there are certainly other nearby schools to fill that description. Just plan to be satisfied with fewer challenges, lower achievement and ultimately a diminished opportunity for your child's success in life.

Walton High School has an excellent academic environment. Attend the open houses and meet your student's motivated teachers. Walton is a truly a home for four years if your student takes an interest in going the extra mile by joining a club, band, orchestra, chorus or fine arts or makes a team.

Walton has consistently been one of the best schools in the state, according to various national magazine rankings. The graduation rate is 99 - 100%, and the percentage of graduates moving on to college is above 95%. High quality curriculum, top educators, a broad range of AP classes, and a variety of extracurricular activities make Walton the top choice for parents who want the best education for their children.
