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 really great school! However, there always seems to be a pressure from the school to do your VERY best. Not that theres anything wrong with striving to succeed, but Walton really pushes it to an extent where it can become stressful and overwhelming.
The school itself is great. The physical environment is clean, welcoming, and, after renovations, large enough to accommodate the large number of students. However, my experience at Walton was not the absolute best. Of course, there were days I had fun with my friends, had fun with my teachers, completed fun assignments that actually taught me something, but there were more days when all I wanted to do was go home because it was so boring at school. Most teachers never made an effort to make our hour in their classroom engaging in any way. Many teachers were strict and were less than understanding of our lives outside of school; they would pile on homework, disregarding our six to seven other classes we had to worry about as well. This may just be an issue with all schools in general, but my school was famous in Cobb County for being ruthlessly competitive and extremely unforgiving.
