Walker is full of caring and well-educated teachers, along with many opportunities for all types of students. Between their tech programs and AP classes, there's a place for everyone. I would love to see another art teacher as well though!

The teachers at Walker High school strive to make a better and brighter future for their students. They offer a very large variety of classes your student can take to better their future, such as Spanish, Pre-Nursing, and FFA (Future Farmers of America). They give equal opportunities for each and every student. There is an unbelievable amount of after school activities and clubs for the students to join. They help out the community and compete in many different competitions around the country and close to home. The administration at Walker High School are extremely devoted to the students at the school. They make sure they have all the information that’s needed. The Walker Wild Cats are a high quality football team. Walker High School has police officers on stand by on campus everyday. I truly believe Walker High School is an amazing well rounded school, but they aren’t just a school they are a family. A community. We are Walker High school.
The school itself is genuinely a good school. It is open to more opportunities than any other in the surrounding areas. A place where everyone fits in and has a place to go. Numerous class advantages with helpful teachers as well. Extracurricular's are a plus, ranging from soccer, volleyball, basketball, football, wrestling, and many more. There is something for everyone to do, including clubs such as Beta, chess club, and FCA, etc. Walker High also is one of the first schools in Livingston parish to have their very own Nike Apparral store and a coffee shop with more to come. All in all the education provided at Walker high is excellent and a great place to be.
