I am a junior at Walnut hills, i graduate in 2015. Great School. If your child is motivated, this school will work for you. To all students: grades 7-9 will be stressful. You will get annoying busy work, but don't worry. If you take advanced classes later on, there is much more freedom and time to enjoy non-school activities. There is much diversity at Walnut and it gets you prepared for college VERY well. I honestly do not have to work that hard for my 3.3 GPA and 3.7 weighted. it is not an extremely difficult school like it is claimed to be, but you must actually work and learn how to test. To students: No, seniors do not call you "effies", and no, you won't get "canned" by anyone... thats all just rumors your hear about walnut when applying. Drama at this school is very minuscule if you place yourself in a good group of friends. At walnut, everyone is kinda open. there are no true cliques. thats what i love about the school. I can honestly talk to 95% of the people in my grade about anything and theres no "shunning" or any of that BS you hear about in high school. Keep in mind there is much cheating at this school. Its common. It will happen. Over all, Walnut is worth it.

The poster below suggested that students at Walnut Hills are "not that smart" because they only need to score 70% on the entrance test to get it. This is not true. An applicant must score at or above the 70th percentile, which means that he or she is among the top third of students taking the test. So by definition the students that enter Walnut Hills are among the top third students academically in the greater Cincinnati area. My son is currently one of those students and he loves it. The education so far has been great as well as the many opportunities for extra curricular activities. Principal Brokamp is very personable and shows a true caring and regard for his students. Alums I meet praise the school highly. Overall, a great experience.

I am currently a senior at Walnut with several younger siblings attending and we all love it. It is a big transition from elementary school because 7th graders are treated a lot like the high schoolers. Students have a lot of freedom but it is really not abused. Going here gives students a huge advantage, I do more work than most other kids in the city, including private school students, and have greatly enjoyed my time here. Walnut is the best school in the area and anyone who says otherwise is probably trolling. Great diversity and great preparation for life. The "Honors advantage" has been lowered by offering AA courses correlating to the honors classes with equal weighting to non-Honors students. Amazing school with amazing opportunities.

I have 2 children at Walnut Hills High School (1 in jr. high, 1 in high school; the school is 7th-12th grade) & I'm very pleased with the school overall. The curriculum is 2nd to none. It's a classical curriculum, with Latin required for at least 3 years. The school offers an abundance of advanced placement classes, which can save parents money in college tuition later. The principal, Jeff Brokamp, is truly a gem; he has a genuine concern for the students and truly wants the best for the students and their development in the classroom and as people. Another great thing about the school, is that every teacher is required to offer a "help night" (before school, after school, or during lunch) in which any student needing or wanting additional help can meet with the teacher for help. This is important because the school's regular curriculum is already advanced, and with the addition of Honors classes, the pace can be a little overwhelming. I would like to see increased and better communication from the school overall. It's a phenomenal school overall --usually ranked about 65 out of 18,000 public schools nationwide and ranked #1 in Ohio.

I graduated from Walnut. The school prepares students very well, in addition to giving them a great amount of "street smarts" which make the transition into college much easier. Walnut has a stellar reputation with colleges throughout the country (the top kids go to Ivy League caliber schools), students with ambitions for these colleges should look no further. However, Walnut is a very systematic school and its plentiful resources are not evenly allocated. If you have a child with academic ambition it is VITAL to get him/her into the Honors Program. As an Honors student, you get the best teachers and priority placement into the school's numerous AP courses. It also gives your all-important GPA a boost that leaves the other 300 students in the dust. It isn't fair, but it's life. The Honors Program is heavily skewed toward white affluent students, which is a little eerie considering how diverse the school actually is. There is some racial tension and self imposed segregation at the school. I transferred into Walnut from a private school and chose it over many other good schools in the area, including my district high school (my parents paid tuition). It was worth every penny.

Having graduated three children in two years from Walnut and having been involved as any parent in athletic, academic, social, and fundraising efforts at Walnut Hills the last 6 years, I can say - without hesitation - that the previous posts claiming a drug problem at Walnut Hills are most-likely by anonymous internet posters looking to lower the perception of this phenomenal school for whatever petty reasons they may have. You cannot get a better education anywhere, at any price. You may be able to get as good, but you it will cost you several tens of thousands of dollars over 4 years, not to mention the six years that Walnut offers. No public school within several hundred miles will give you as good an education, not to mention better. As excellent as WHHS has been for decades, it has only been improving by leaps and bounds due to the incomparable leadership of its current principal. Every parent within the greater-Cincinnati area should consider Walnut Hills High School, first, as it offers the best education that they will be able to obtain for their children. With CPS' Open Enrollment, there is no excuse for a parent to not attempt to send their child to Walnut Hills.

Walunt Hills High School is a great school. I graduated from Walnut Hills. They give you alot of freedom,space and choices on what YOU want to do. This school has very great acedemics,very great teachers and staff and,a high expectations of their students. Also they give you the chioce to take AP courses, which will help ALOT on your road to whatever college. The only thing I don't like about this school is some of the people. some of the people at this school is what might set this schools standards a little bit lower. There is about 5-6 thousand people walking at the same time in all different directions,65% of them are 7th and 8th graders. i have witnessed alot of bulliying at this school, because its soo big and people will not always get along but all in all its is a great school

This school is great! You have to be motivated to do all the work there, or else you will not succeed. As long as a student is motivated, the teachers will be more than willing to help. There are a ton of tutoring programs, and as long as you are willing to try, you will most likely love the school. A lot of the time, I don't even feel challenged. Once I talk to my friends who go to other schools, however, I realize that I AM, in fact, being very challenged, and I am actually taking classes that are one or two years ahead of my grade. I think that as long as a student is willing to work hard, and as long as the student WANTS to go to the school, they will do fine!

My daughter entered Walnut in 9th grade, after having been in a private school all of her previous years of education. I have been thrilled with Walnut. My daughter was used to a heavy workload before Walnut, so she wasn't thrown off by the amount of homework her courses entailed, but I know it was a big adjustment for many students. My daughter typically spends 4 to 5 hours per night on homework, but she is taking 4 AP classes (out of a total of 6 classes) in this, her junior year. She has had phenomenal teachers in so many classes, but particularly in her AP classes. The students in those classes are also exceptional, and very dedicated to making the most of their H.S. years. My daughter loves the diversity at Walnut, and appreciates that there's a niche of friends for everyone there. Mr. Brokamp, the principal, is amazing; he is the most dedicated administrator I've ever known. I think I have a unique perspective on the ability of this school to educate well. I am an ACT/SAT tutor, and I work with students from almost every public and private school in Cincinnati. The students I've tutored from Walnut are on par with the very best students from other area high schools.

My child has attended a suburban school but not a private school and Walnut seems to be a better fit. The suburban school were well organized but you were given many breaks or lets say they were spoon fed. When my child got to Walnut...he didn't get into Honors but the classes he were in were very fast paced from where he came from. I can afford to send my child to a private school but I know for a fact that Walnut will push him because if he doesnt excel in teh classroom, he will get that yellow slip in the mail. At a private school, they will help your child with a tutor or so but you may have to add to your tuition and at Walnut...only the strong survive!

I have had one child graduate from Walnut Hills and one currently still enrolled and it has been an wonderful experience for my kids. The school's greatest strength is the diversity in the school. There are students of every race, religion, economic status, social class and sexual persuasion all learning together - and it works beautifully. There is a dedicated teaching staff that provides top notch instruction. My only concern is the direction the school is headed. The school ten years ago was more diverse in thought with the school being equally committed to the three A's - Academics, Athletics & Arts. The balance has shifted to the emphasis being Athletics. Walnut Hills was a haven for creative, bright and "outside of the box" thinkers. Those kids today are being made to feel like they have no reason to exist while athletes are celebrated as the highest level of student accomplishment..

Similar to suburban schools, but it has more AP courses. Best suited for students who are very bright without learning issues. Most teachers are pretty good but a surprising number who are quite bad. Very disorganized as far as anything clerical - lost paperwork common. Guidance department surprisingly poor - my daughter couldn't get appointments and I had to call multiple times to get them to just send her transcripts to her college. On the plus side, when the teacher is good the learning is excellent.

If you can't afford the suburbs or private school, this school is as close as you will get to those. If you can, this school is here to try to convince you not to utilize those resources. Contrary to what I thought when I first started going there, which is that this is a school for kids who are smart, it seems that it is in actuality a school to keep white people in the city. You only need a 70% to pass the entrance exam, so you don't have to be smart to get in. And you also don't have to be that smart to pass most of the non-advanced classes. So it seems to be more about having a reputation as far as the school is concerned. The day-to-day reality is a big letdown.

My son was not challenged in school, but I didn't know this until he entered Walnut in 7th grade last year. He was given a high school workload and learned quickly that there are no breaks. There are no extra points for class participation, most teachers give a '0' for late work, etc. He was sweating it out, hoping to pass some classes, even though he was an A student in his previous private school! I learned a lot just helping him with his homework. He did have a tutor for year for Latin since I couldn t help him much. I was worried that it would be too much for him, but he was adamant about returning this year. It is a great and challenging experience for both him and my 9th grader.

Be advised that it is very easy to fall through the cracks at Walnut. And yes, I did take AP's and honor classes. Often the kids there are so intelligent that they can basically teach themselves. Unfortunately this is not the case for all of us. I found myself really struggling in math in science without much help. The teachers could give assignments but they couldn't teach. To my own amazement when I went to college I actually did well in my math classes, because I had teachers who knew how to teach. Now I'm a graduate student at American University with a 3.9. gpa. Walnut is very competitive and favors the rich and well connected. On the plus side there is no 'in' or 'out' crowd. I was well exposed at Walnut if nothing else. It was also the only good option for a Cincinnati Public HS.

Walnut Hills is an excellent school if your child is a 7th-grade entrant and is selected for the Honors Program for the 8th (and 9th grades) by GPA, which segregates the top 25% from the rest of the student body academically for virtually the rest of their time at the school. The extra weighting that your child gets from taking 'weighted' Honors-level courses in the 9th grade confers a class-rank advantage that is impossible for those not chosen (the bottom 75%) to overcome. Walnut Hills is an unparalleled experience for the top 25%; a merely above-average experience for the rest of the rank-and-file. All of the honors and choice college offers come to those 25% chosen in the 8th grade for the Honors experience. My D attended Walnut and loved every minute of her years there. She was an Honors Program graduate.

An alum and a parent of a current student. There is no better school to prepare young people for college and life in general. A well-diversified student population in a school that is still run by the faculty. An alumni base that will answer the call for any need - textbooks, athletic equipment, musical instruments, additional instructors, etc. There is none better.

From a parent: Walnut is a gem and a reason to stay in - or relocate to - the city of Cincinnati. Newsweek has rated Walnut the top public school in Ohio the last three years (#34 in U.S: 2008). The College Board, which administers AP's, rated Walnut the top public or private!! in Ohio, based on the number of AP's per student, and the exceptionally high pass rate on AP exams. The new (2007) principal, Jeff Brokamp, a Walnut grad, has brought back school spirit. Parents and students adore him... per one 10th grader: 'He shows he really cares about us.' The school is extremely diverse: 35% Af-Am, 5% other minorities, and at least 12-15% Jewish. Gay students are easily accepted. College & SAT coaching by counselors is superb. We still shake our heads at what we get for free at Walnut! Judie L.S.

My son currently attends Walnut Hills High School and absolutely loves it. He was always an exceptionally bright kid but was never especially challenged. At Walnut Hills the academic standards are so high and my son has to compete on a daily basis with the best and the brightest in the City that he has been challenged to achieve up to his full potential. I would very much like to leave Cincinnati and go to a bigger, more cosmopolitan city with more career opportunities for myself but where am I going to find another Walnut Hills?

I am a student at Walnut Hills High School. I love it there, and I can honestly say that going there has been one of the best choices in my life. Each day, we learn something new, and the teachers do their best to prepare us for college, and advanced courses. One does not have to be in an advanced class to get superior teaching. I feel that when I go to college, Walnut Hills will have given me the best preparation I will need.

One will not see a 'stepford' student population at whhs. School spirit is centered on achievement via synergy. Diversity and human difference are systemic, not merely a student-body demographic correction to be attained/obtained. There is no 'back-to-time-immemorial' tradition of achievement via conformity, iykwim, to protect from individual behavior or ideas (i.E., No compulsory non-academic courses). Freedom of expression and free-thinking individuals are responsibly encouraged. There is, however, a multi-multi-generational tradition of academic/extracurricular enrichment and excellence that is zealously maintained jointly by parent organizations, the administration, and an active alumni association (financially via private, extra-public funding). Opportunities for enrichment abound through top-quality instruction/counseling. Special interdisciplinary opportunities (english/physical science/american history and english/modern world history/latin combinations) are offered for qualifying 8th- and 9th-graders. Unsurpassed record for admissions to top universities/lacs through counseling and support services. Your child will want for nothing at this unique public college preparatory school -- except time take advantage of opportunities.

The academic programs at Walnut Hills are top notch in every area. The variety of course offerings, including more AP courses than any other school in the country (including private schools), makes the school ideal for the serious student. Extracurricular activities abound and it is easy for a student to start his or her own group, thus allowing for infinite possibilities. The school is recognized for the quality of its performance ensembles and artwork created by students. Though most sports are available, I will admit that the teams are not particularly strong for the most part, except for soccer and tennis. The quiz team is probably the most successful sports team at Walnut Hills.

Academically superior classic college-prep 7-12th grade school. A 'Utopia' within Cincinnati Public Schools district. Accomplished, tenured teachers and administration. Parent involvement is encouraged and some staff have children who are enrolled who usually do very well in school and life. The curriculum is rigorous with much homework. Younger students may be a bit overwhelmed by age & size of student body (some students are young men & women)! Extracurriculars are great and numerous. Football, basketball and baseball programs haven't 'shined' for many decades. Other sports do well (i.e. tennis, golf, swim, ski, track & field, even chess). The Alumni help to almost no end, a very impressive, influencial group. New outstanding campus building improvements plus the classic Jeffersonian achitecture. High achievers obtain ivy-league college admissions & scholarships. High percentage of graduating class total post-secondary institution acceptance.

As a graduate of North Avondale Montessori, I had assumed that I would attend Clark, and was furious when my parents decided that Walnut would be better for me. Suffice it to say that I am no longer 'furious' in any sense of the word. Socially, Walnut is an excellent school to attend; there's no stigma to being intelligent, and the sheer number of students guarentees that you'll fit in with at least one group. The teachers are a 'mixed bag' in the best possible sense. Of course there's the occasional unpleasant teacher (and I needn't name names, I think), but the diversity of the student body is reflected in its teachers, and there are some really stellar educators (and hilarious characters - I'm looking at you, Social Studies department). If you're looking for a great experience, come to Walnut. And for the record, I loved Latin.

I hate to disagree with my good friend Wes (Jan 2005), but nobody actually wants to come to Walnut Hills - bad part of town, long bus ride, and even parents hate the Latin requirement. The only reason anyone applies is that most of the other public high schools in Cincinnati have been in Academic Emergency for years. That is changing (Clark and Withrow University are rated Excellent now). As soon as the district gets its act together and gives better high school choices, attendance at Walnut Hills is gonna sink like a stone.

First off I would like to make a comment regarding the comment made in June of 2004. Walnut Hills High School is an academic school, they do not have time for students that have failing grades, I believe that this should be obvious considering the fact that before you may attend Walnut you pass an entrance exam. Last I checked this is usually something that would imply you must work if you wish to stay at this school. Also there are many other students in the city of Cincinnati that wish to attend Walnut, and if the only reason that they are not able to do so is because of a failing student then I believe that student should be asked to leave because they clearly do not have what it takes to be at a college preparatory school.

The school is a really special place; very open, with high expectations of students, and more AP classes than anywhere else in the country.

During my education @ Walnut, I had a 3.0 average. My peers had higher GPA's and I started to think that I was not smart. Now that I am in college I feels that my education at Walnut Hills has helped me. Compared with other students with High school 3.0 GPA's...I am doing much more advanced. One of the best things about Walnut Hills is that all of the classes are advanced. The classes that are not Honors or AP are still more advanced than other schools. Even classes like music and art are advanced at Walnut. The only thing that needs improvement in Walnut Hills is the big head that most of the students have and the discipline. The students know that thay are smart, think they can do what they want becasue of it, and usually end up getting away with a lot.

My daughter graduated recently in the top quarter of her class - so it's not sour grapes when I say that Walnut is a family 'unfriendly' school. Walnut caters to the top 10% and treats other students as 'also rans.' The B-average student is offered no more opportunity than the D-average student. When I asked one teacher why she didn't allow my daughter to ask questions in class, she said that the students who 'get it' would be bored. Not surprisingly only about 10% of parents donate to the 'crucial' SOS fund. Parent involvement is low because this school does what's best for its reputation rather than what's best for its students. Walnut routinely expells failing students, considering it a kindness to 'let' them fail instead of helping them. This year the school board told Walnut that it can't expel students for low grades. That will require an attitude adjustment.

This school is an amazing public high school. While maintaining a diverse, open-minded community, the school has more AP classes than any in the country, and 95% of its students go on to a four-year college. The students of the school are intelligent, informed members of society, and enjoy extracurricular activities. The music and arts program at Walnut Hills is also phenomenal, often outshining the programs and ensembles at the public school for the creative and performing arts. Despite financial barriers, Walnut Hills alumni make sure that this 'brain commune' is always functioning at the highest of levels.

Walnut Hills sets high expectations for students but does not set equally high expectations for teachers. Teachers don't return calls in a timely manner, don't return papers and tests in a timely manner, either don't use or don't keep class websites up to date, and are impatient with students who actually ask to come in for a Help Night. Struggling students can expect little help from Walnut Hills teachers.

Not only did I attend this school, but so did my two daughters. This school provides excellent educational opportunities not only in the school but outside as well--my daughter went to France and Italy as part of the learning experience in her Latin class! The teachers expect and encourage critical thinking. There are excellent extracurricular activities to add to the educational and social skills of the students. Walnut ranks consistently in the top 90's on all mandated tests for students. The school even brings back its top alumni for a lecture series each year (Nobel Prize winners, filmmakers, community leaders, top athletes, etc.).

Walnut Hills forces you to achieve at your top level. It gives you the obvious academic lesson, but also teaches you about the 'real world'. There are students from various socio-economic, political, relgious and racial groups. College was not a shock to me because of the environment that surrounded me in my high school setting.
