The Walker School Reviews
We are so grateful to have had our children at a school with so many amazing role models. Teachers who are experts in their fields AND love young people- what a gift! Coaches who cared about our kids on and off the field/court- you shaped who they are!
You challenged our children and you loved on them and we can't thank you enough.
And thanks to the other families who shared their lives (and the ups and downs of parenting) along the way. Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Diwali celebrations, church mission events, backyard picnics, and simple conversations in the parking lot- all of these moments added to our family's experience as well.
Thank you, Walker. You showed us that middle school and high school are not just phases to be endured but times to be celebrated. You taught our children well!
Even with academic excellence, I found the most outstanding wonder of Walker to be the social and extracurricular opportunities. With Walker’s support, I had the opportunity to perform and present guided independent research, swim varsity all four years of high school, be captain of our robotics team, start an organization, volunteer at a local elementary school, and lead our discipline council.
After Walker, I’ll be attending UVA on a full-ride scholarship, an opportunity Walker made me aware of, nominated me for, and supported me through as I underwent the application and interview process. I’m deeply grateful for the experience I had at Walker and truly believe there is no better place to grow as an individual.
