I attended this high school and now attend a well-known and distinguished college. I feel like I have been very well-prepared for college and life. The teachers care a lot about their students and go above and beyond to ensure that we all learn to the best of our abilities.

Walton is a close knit community with a great history. Many alumni have become very successful in their chosen fields. Currently we lack the dedicated, inspired leadership necessary to return the school to it's former outstanding position of academic excellence. The search continues for a new superintendent of schools and we hope to find a new leader with the vision and experience necessary to guide our school.

Walton Central is a really good school district. It is small, friendly and I am proud to have 3 kids that graduated from Walton. They have good academics as well as very good athletics. Especially their football program.
