The community of students and faculty at Maggie Walker has been incredibly supportive over the past four years. I've loved going there and have met some of the kindest, most interesting and most knowledgeable people I could imagine encountering (both fellow students and staff members). The Drama club is especially fantastic; the acting and production in the multiple shows a year is very near professional level, something I haven't really seen in a lot of high school theatre companies.

Maggie Walker provides a unique opportunity for focused and accelerated gifted education in a public school environment. It's a really small school and extremely diverse. We have a lot of freedom at MLWGS. Some would say it's similar to life on a college campus. It's a difficult curriculum, but well worth the effort.
Overall, the school is awesome and has specialties in many different fields, especially languages (we offer 10) and AP courses. Through a partnership with VCU, we even offer several dual-enrollment college courses.
