excellent college preparatory high school. I see nothing wrong with a school setting the bar high and Walton does.



- a community member
Top notch education and focus on college readiness, including better outcomes for students from lower income families than most other top high schools in the area. Walton also has the added benefit of being more diverse than some of the other top performing east cobb schools.

wow what an awful experience this has been. i have yet to meet a staff member that us completly useless. if you are not the best of the best you dont matter to them. all they do is destroy what little self esteem you have. the incentive system is a complete failure, as i have known people that have come to school with the flu and a 103 fever. they offer web help but most students dont bother because the majority of teachers do nothing. if you get a coach as a teacher you are pretty much set to fail because there is little to no teaching that actually happens in the classroom. Dont bother with the counselors as they do absolutely nothing besides pressure you into taking higher classes. walton you can do so much better. huge dissapointment, will be homeschooling kids next year. what an awful school and school system

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

They're just baby-sitting young adults. They don't teach anything that you couldn't just read from the textbook or google. There's barely a point in attending class other than the fear they instill in you. Just like any other school.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a community member
The problem with this school and many others is that the teachers from the different departments don't communicate to space assignments and projects out well, so students will have a period of little to no homework and then the teachers of each subject will pile up multiple assignments at once!!!!

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a community member
People copy off their homework right in front of the teachers. Sometimes even tests. It's not fair to the students that actually work for their grade



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

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
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.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a parent
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.



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