Walton High School5

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 High School does not deserve the rating of 10. This school lacks racial diversity and as such, is filled with unrealistic and disillusioned children who have a sense of entitlement and genuinely believe that because they are "White and Rich" they are inherently superior to other races. They are being ill prepared for the post high school 'real' world. These ideals are further perpetuated via Walton High School's racially discriminatory curriculum called 'Race, Gender and Class' where the children are taught that regardless of educational achievement the "white male secretary" will possess more power than the "black physician" because he is White and Male in America. This is a blatant white supremacist racist view and is not true of the United States of America that I reside in. Walton High School has the potential to be an exceptional school, however, as long as they turn a blind eye to the ill treatment of children of color by students and teachers, they do not deserve the rating that they have received. This is the United States of America which I am proud to call the country I love. Walton- you need to do better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Walton High School is an okay school. It could be a bad school if you get bad teachers but if you get the right teachers you should see a successful semester ahead. Lots of families are moving away from this school because it wasn't as good as they had expected. For example, is that some teachers here aren't good at their job. They add zeros for work you have done sometimes and they get mad if you ask students questions(even though the teacher isn't talking) or other reasons to contact your parents and get mad at you. There are good things about Walton too like WEB help sessions(Take advantage and get an A in a class!). I went to my Honors Bio sessions almost every WEB and I had a 92 in the class. High school counts so let go of social media, texting and expect a ton of studying for these 4 years. Already messed up a chance of getting into a good college. If you stay, enjoy being a Walton Raider!
Walton is the best school in Cobb county by far! When I was a freshman coming to Walton from out of state I was greeted with open arms and made so many great friends. The academics are challenging but not overwhelming like others say. The teachers go above and beyond to help you get the grades you want and honestly want to see you succeed. The extracurricular activities are everywhere! There is definitely pressure to go to college but I think that is the best part because it helps students set academic goals and improve themselves as all-around students. If your ready to work hard and make your four years count, Walton is the place to be
It really is a top rated school deserving of top rating. It is academically challenging for all levels with different degrees of rigor for all levels of student. It is no joke of a school. You get educated from her & will be able to achieve in college.
This school is awful. You get so much homework each night that there is not enough hours in the day to finish it. It has WEB days almost every week which is just another opportunity to get more homework instead of being able to get caught up. They have incentive for finals. It is nice except people show up to school sick and the Walton plague gets passed around. The people who go there are very snobby. The school itself is disgusting. They have an agricultural program, its called the bugs. All the classrooms except for the science rooms have carpets. They are cleaned once a semester. The school is pretty dirty except when they have the SAT going on, then the halls and bathrooms are actually cleaned. The staff is more focused on painting over the writing in the bathrooms then actually cleaning them.
Our family recently downsized into a smaller, older house from where we were living out in Canton, GA so that my daughter could go to Walton. The move has been so worth it. This school's focus on developing well-rounded students was missing from our previous local high school.
