I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Ethel Walker School. The school's holistic approach to education has prepared me not only for higher education but for life. Through the various seminars and co-curricular activities, I have learned about various things: the importance of sisterhood,leadership,social justice, taxes and mortgages, self defense, the value of teamwork and the importance in giving back. The Ethel Walker is school is where the fountain of women's empowerment is located. I am leaving having drank from that fountain and feeling confident in my capabilities as a student and leader.

I have loved being an Ethel Walker student! Ethel Walker has allowed me to come out of my shell and gain so much confidence. Ethel Walker has opened my eyes to be able to see and understand the rest of the world from so many different perspectives, and helped me to realize my full potential to make an impact. I will be forever grateful that I chose Ethel Walker.
There are more things I liked than want to see changed. The sports programs here are great and the diversity is better than many of other prep schools. The food hasnt been too good but it is definitely improving. Overall the campus has a friendly enviroment and a good community. Homework loads are pretty large but most teachers are considerate and care for the students well being. Every school has its ups and downs but one thing is for sure, I am definitely going to miss all of the great people I meet at this magical place.
