I would give WHS 4 out of 5 stars. Walkertown is a small, but welcoming school. Teachers and students are joyful, constantly laughing or smiling. Everyone seems to get along well. Walkertown is one of the smallest high schools in the district. Not having a lot of people allows more space and freedom. Walkertown is also very diverse. Everyone has their own personalities and differences. It is all accepted at Walkertown. I also think that Walkertown is a safe and comfortable place. It is in a nice, small community. Compared to other schools in district, Walkertown probably has the least troubles. We may have a bad reputation with test scores, but teachers are hard working. Administration is working their best to keep us in school to help our school performance as a whole. I am hoping that Walkertown will grow and flourish in the future. We have grown so much and we can only see what the near has to bring!! GO WOLFPACK!

The school in itself is a good school. However, I feel that whoever thought of the idea to join and Middle and High school, didn't think that much on it. The classes are very slim and not very broad. There are way too many kids for us to all share one school! There isn't an overflow for classes with which piranha stress on the kids because the thwy feel like if they ask too many questions, their holding up the whole class.
Walkertown High school is a school that has not only helped me out as a person but has also guided me in the right path. For these soon to be four years that i have attended WHS have honestly been some of the best. I am very proud to see how our school and community has grown and how we support one another. Yes like every other school WHS has it flaws but we work on them together, students and teachers so that we will have a better school and teaching environment for the new students every year. WHS has such a beautiful and large campus with a lot of sports and very fun football games. I have had such a amazing time at WHS as a student, I hope everyone else who plans to attend Walkertown or is currently enrolled enjoys it as much as I did. GO WOLFPACK!!!!!!
