    The Walker School Reviews

    We have been a Walker family for four years. We have had our typical middle school mishaps and stumbles, but we are so thankful for a small environment to use the mishaps as teachable moments to allow for growth and character development.

    While we loved our neighborhood public schools, but both my children as they were closer to approaching middle school felt they weren’t being “heard” and were losing their love of learning. A neighbor had been telling us for years to check Walker out. When my daughter did her shadow day she was sold! The lunch offerings didn’t hurt either!

    Walker not only offers a top tier academic environment for children to thrive across all divisions, but they are the embodiment of a true family atmosphere. The administrators and staff work closely to ensure that each child’s unique offerings have a place at Walker.

    I have been at The Walker School since I was in Kindergarten, and being a rising Senior, I would not trade this experience for anything. The very small community allows you to know almost everyone and almost everyone to know you. It is more academically challenging than any other school in the area, and the support system is unmatched. Every teacher I've had in my 11 years here so far have been more than willing to help me in every way possible, whether that be through extra help on my homework after or before school, or letting me talk to them about other issues going on that I needed to talk about. I feel more than prepared to go to college with the resources they provide, and we have been given countless opportunities to learn in several different ways and to get real-world experience.
    I joined The Walker School in highschool and it was one of the easiest transitions. The teachers are extremely helpful and I received a lot individual help when I wanted/needed it. The facilities are very nice especially the new science building. Definitely don’t regret going to Walker! Met lifelong friends there!
