If there was an option to give a school zero stars I would do so. There are cockroaches and mice everywhere, dead and alive. This school is the epitome of the social class system from Mean Girls: If you're new to this school, you are socially screwed. The teachers are extremely hypocritical and do not teach, with very few exceptions. The sports suck, the people suck, and the school smells like manure 80% of the time. Don't go to this school if you want to keep your soul and self-respect.

Walkersville High School does a great job of bringing the community together. Whether you've gone to the high school in the past, currently attend, or just moved to the area.. the school spirit is radiated through the community, and there is a high rate of parent involvement with all of the high school activities. The teachers and school staff are very supportive, and put education as the utmost priority, while providing an atmosphere of school spirit and community.

This is the best highschool I've ever been to. All of the teachers are very personal, and everyone is so helpful. We really do get our work done.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
