Great school. Walker has gone through a tremendous transformation in the last couple of years. It has a new talented principal. It has half the number of kids it had just a year ago (because of the new middle school in the area) and is in fact the smallest public school in the district (not considering charter schools). The building is in good condition due to the bond repairs. My child is happy and academically challenged; the teachers are outstanding. My child was assigned a research project just two weeks into the school year (6th grade) in social studies; was tested and placed appropriately in advanced math. Walker s test scores are best or second best (depending on grade and subject) in the district. Walker has been a not-yet-discovered gem of a school in the last two years.
A disaster waiting to happen. Overcrowded, rundown building. Likely gang activity. Weak response to reported behavioral problems. My child has been bullied here and her classroom needs not consistently addressed. However, great orientation for 6th graders and some excellent teachers.
My daughter has loved all three of her years at Walker--great friends, great teachers. Lots of student opportunity to get involved outside of the classroom.
My daughter enjoys art there, not a bad school. However I agree it is way overcrowded and is semi rundown. This comunity needs a new school
Impressed with the organization. The first day of school was pleasent for my family. Thank you Walker Middle School Staff
Way overcrowded;runs almost like a correctional facility; building and grounds in poor shape; in need of a new school. Mixture of excellent and not so good teachers.
Walker has been given a bum rap. Walker is a great school. Terrific teachers and an outstanding Principal.
