Big Walnut High school is an extraordinary place. With amazing academics and teachers, supportive staff and excellent opportunities. Away from the school itself, Big Walnut is one of the strongest communities known. Through tragedy such as a student passing away from a car crash in 2016 and a love staff member, custodian, and honorary football coach in 2017, We all come together to love, support, and protect one another. Big Walnut is not just a school, but a family of wonderful characters that are accepting of students and their differences such as race, religion, gender, and disability, We remain a family.

Big walnut is a fun school that lets you express yourself. Rumors spread very fast so you cant believe everything you hear. A lot of the teacher are super nice and will not force you to do work in class if you are nice to them and still get your work done Although some of the teacher are very strict and you will have a long tough year of a lot of work but it is good tow have two different classes like that because it prepares you for the many types of bosses and college professors you will have in the future.
I love the community environment that we have as a whole, all of the event ar family-friendly and there is always a ton of participation. I also appreciate all of the clubs and organizations the school help students become affiliated with.
