The Walker School Reviews

61 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.

Walker is a great school that truly prepares you for college. Challenging academic classes and caring teachers make for an unbeatable experience. Th biggest problem is space and resources. With new sports facilities and a STEM building, these will improve. I would like to see a bigger emphasis on the arts to include all interests.
I have 3 children at Walker, and Walker is the perfect fit for them. The school has small class sizes and expert teachers, and the teachers have plenty of time for extra academic support before, during and after school. Middle school math classes are single gender. Walker offers a wide range of sports teams, academic clubs, and a strong emphasis on the arts. The Upper School band, chorus and orchestra are performing at Disney this year, last year the band performed in NYC at Carnegie Hall.
