I would have to say that my high school experience was for the most part amazing! I truly had teachers and staff who truly cared about you and went that extra mile to help you. I wish there was a few more clubs or sports offered but it was a amazing experience for me there. Everyone for the most part treated me with kindness and respect. They showed me what leadership was and compassion and understanding. I truly believe that we’re trying to do what was best and look out for the well being of the students and the school.

Walton High School is truly the best place to attend high school. From the atmosphere always being about Brave spirit to how the teachers really show extra support in every aspect, you always feel invited, welcome, and supported. The administration is always letting you know they are there for all you needs and have always answered all questions my parents have had with quick response and great attitude. I wouldn't have wanted to attend any other school.
I mean, the advanced placement and honors teachers are some of the best I've ever had. I learned so much in their classes and also enjoyed spending time in the classroom and learning the course. The regular education teachers, however, aren't exactly the best. Its like a hit and miss situation. I wish there were more electives. There isn't a wide range of them and the school itself focuses more on the STEM fields. I feel as if the students who want to pursue a performing or fine art career are almost forgotten about. The students that attend are also pretty ignorant. Being a school from the deep south, many of the students are racist and get upset when someone calls them out.
