walden is a very student forward school. Pep-assemblies are the best! The current principal’s are kind of strict but nothing too crazy. The individuality of Walden students is very important to the culture of Walden grove’s community. Counselors here are also very helpful and get thing’s done as they should be. Security is very friendly but they really care about the student body they protect. Teacher’s here will not let you fail and will encourage good behavior and tolerate even the most troublesome students. Bullying almost doesn’t exist here on campus. Overall, Walden high is an amazing high-school!

Thankful to say I attended such a well-rounded public school, with endless opportunities for their students! Majority of the teachers and staff are kind, and work endlessly to ensure each student is given a fair chance to succeed. Every student has a place to go and feel welcomed, as there are so many clubs and programs to join. Bullying is not tolerated on campus! This school is 100% a safe environment for any student, and campus is very good about celebrating everyone for their talents and achievements. Never a dull moment at this school!
I really enjoyed my time at Walden Grove High School. The atmosphere at school was always inviting and motivated me to be more involved at school as I became more out-going throughout my high school career. I definitely think finding my place at school and something I loved to do made school more enjoyable for me. One of the best memories from Walden was the school spirit that radiated through everyone, from football games to the pep assemblies, it became the true essence of Walden Grove. I think one of Walden's greatest struggles I noticed throughout my years there was the lack of organization between teachers and especially administration. The staff consistently changed as well as administration making the professional system within the school off.
