INCREDIBLE AND GREAT IN ACADEMICS. SO MUCH BETTER THAN LASSITER! At Walton, the great teachers makes sure that you are grasping the concepts before you move on. My older sister goes to Walton and she adores it. Although at some times it gets tough due to all of the rough material you must master, everyone is there to help you thrive. Walton really has a tight community and they will all work to get the students in a great position for college.
Review Walton High School
Walton provides a wide range of academic opportunities from extremely rigorous AP education to easier on level classes. AP classes at Walton are no joke. Its excellent teachers push students to their limits which results in high averaging AP exam scores. Everyday, it's common to hear students complain about lack of sleep or stress induced by the workload of AP and Honors classes. Many Walton alumni report that taking multiple AP classes at Walton is harder than some years in college. As a result, students feel more prepared for college and rigorous curriculum. A downside to the academics at Walton is that students in on level classes are given a lazy education that removes the sense of importance for academics which creates some polarization between AP students and on level students. Overall, Walton is an awesome school with incredible AP teachers that academically prepares its students for college.
Walton High School is a fantastic high school to attend to. The teachers and other administrators set the bar high for all of their students. There are many rigorous courses such as AP and honors classes that students can chose from to help advance their knowledge and enhance their learning experience. I will say that because Walton sets their bars so high for their students, some of the classes can become a bit challenging. Due to this factor, Walton has many different opportunities to get help with whatever subject that student struggles with most. Some examples include teachers giving up their time a couple days a week to have a help session or there even is a Nation Honors Society to get help from fellow classmates who do well in certain subjects that others may not be so great at. Overall, Walton High School strives for excellence for each and every student with hopes of them each having a bright and successful future.
