The academics at the school are typical - teachers and staff are mostly good and there are a few truly great teachers there... However, many of the kids and parents call the shots at the school -completely based on politics. Drugs, alcohol and bullying are absolutely present and alive there... though the admin. puts on a total facade of "no tolerance". The principal was no-where to be found and the vice-principal (who is no longer there) handled a situation we personally had, very poorly. Our experience was among many other similar ones I've heard about throughout the last few years.

This is my third year at Walsh, and I just wanted to say how great it is. The staff is absolutely amazing! All the teachers and administrators are always super kind towards me and my peers, treat us with respect, and try to help us become better people. The students are a great group of kids, all with talent just pouring out of them. Sure, there are conflicts, but I know from personal experience that the students are willing to overcome differences if it means keeping a friend. The academic program is outstanding. When I moved to Round Rock, I was baffled by how rigorous the standards were compared to my former school district. Sometimes it's a challenge, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Lastly, the extra curricular activities. The elective programs at Walsh are beyond amazing. I've been a part of the Walsh Band and Walsh Art program all three years, and I was a part of the athletics program in my 7th grade year. Those programs helped shape who I am, and promote so many positive character traits. The assortment of electives is great too! I absolutely love Walsh, and wouldn't wanna go anywhere else.

Most of the teachers are excellent! I think the principal and vice principals are fantastic. The academic programs are great. There is some bullying there against certain personality types, my oldest child had no issues, my second had quite a few during the 6th grade year. I recently moved out of state to a school ranked 9/10. I honestly like it better because the students are so much more kind and polite. However, I really miss the teachers at Walsh, they are top notch

So far I am not impressed. Our family is relocating to Round Rock, and specifically chose an area to build a house so that our daughter could attend Walsh. I have put in 2 very detailed phone calls to the counselor to ask questions, and have also emailed the Principal of the school yet have not gotten a call back. Not even a quick "I'll get back to you" email. If this is how the parent/school communication works then I might have to reconsider my contract to build a home in this area. It's ridiculous when administrators can't even return a simple phone call! If I don't get a phone call soon, I plan to go to the district about this. Not that they probably will care either.. attitude always reflects leadership. I am SUPREMELY disappointed!

This is my oldest childs first year in middle school and I could'nt be happier! Needless to say I dreaded middle school like every other parent. The atmosphere was so welcoming on welcome night that I did'nt even cry! Okay, so I got alittle teary eyed. But that was only from excitment. I can't imagine my son anywhere else. We feel blessed to be here.

I think it is an excellent school. I really dont know why people are just running after canyon vista.. I think it is just a game to keep the home prices bumped up in that area. Walsh middle school is an excellent one with great teachers and a very studios atmosphere for our tweens.I recommend this school for your kids.
