Walnut Hill has been a great experience. I am a four year senior in the music department and have been lucky enough to work with great, motivational faculty and wonderful, inspiring students. I have loved getting to know people from different countries and live on such a diverse campus. The connections I have made will be lifelong. Walnut Hill sets you up perfectly for college; especially in the arts but also in the academics, in giving you a worldly perspective, providing a change for independence whilst keeping structure and safety, and in incredible college counseling support. I love Walnut Hill.

The student body is a truly special group of people, talented and socially conscious and gearing up for artistic futures that will make an impact. However, there are several arts departments that could stand updating in terms of diversity and performance/show opportunities, which are both important to making artists of the future that are also often overlooked. Teens will have both a rewarding and draining experience.
Walnut Hill is an incredible place to grow as an artist, as a human, and as a world citizen. It's where so many diverse perspectives come to collaborate. What comes out of the work at Walnut Hill is pure magic. I wouldn't trade my experience as a Walnut for the world!
