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.
Walker School educators are exceptional. More than 70% of them have advanced degrees and even some have pursued their own education to the doctorate level. In parent and student surveys across the school, the meaningful relationships between students and faculty is ranked consistently as the number 1 strength of the school. Walker's teachers are consistently searching for ways to connect, challenge, engage and relate to the school's student body and alumni - long gone from the school - report that their relationships with their teachers is the thing they take with them into college and beyond.
