My favorite thing about Walker Valley High School was the faculty and staff. They all genuinely care about the students. Walker Valley truly felt like a family while I was there. There was not a bad "clique" problem, everyone talked to everyone. The only thing that I would change would be pushing students to take dual enrollment classes instead of AP courses. Taking dual enrollment classes prepared me for college more than classes on campus did. Overall, it is a great school. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that lives in that area!

Absolutely loved Walker Valley HS! The teachers and staff all care about the students and their success. All of the staff, teachers and the administration were all willing to help my son in any way they could to help him keep his work and grades current when he unexpectedly fell ill and was hospitalized for several days during his senior year. He graduated with honors. Walker Valley High School was truly a blessing in our lives.
Has a wide variety of classes, amazing teachers who care about your education, prepares you well for college, and has many opportunities for things you may be looking for. Plenty of ways to get involved at this school. I would definitely recommend it, my time with it has been nothing but perfect!
