I am currently a sophomore here. Although the academics are extremely challenging, especially for taking all honors classes, I know I’m actually learning something in life. New school is cool, academics and athletics are great, and it is nice to know we go to one of the hardest schools/best schools in the state and even top in the country! (UsaWorldreport 2018 ranked us 160 out of 17000 high schools in the country)

Walton is a cut-throat competitive school. If you are not a stellar athlete or amazing in AP classes this school is difficult. On level curriculum is written at an advanced even AP level. Most courses your only option for on level is written at a college preparatory level. Overall the staff can be either incredible or horrid. Some teachers are encouraging and only want to see Students succeed in high school, increase in knowledge, and grow. Others can leave students in tears, some scrapping by doing the bare minimum relying on other teachers curriculum, and leave students struggling to pass difficult classes. Walton is a top tier school that has a reputation for high level classes, academic excellence, and incredible sports programs. College acceptances can be very stressful and competitive when only so many students can be taken from a particular school. Being a charter school they can change curriculum and implement many things other schools cannot making them an elite school zone.
I love the inclusiveness that the students radiate at Walton. In addition, the academics, music programs, art programs and extracurriculars strive for excellence. Walton is a school for winners!
