Walton High School is an incredibly competitive school that encourages academic excellence and provides numerous opportunities for all students. It contains several different programs in different subjects such as the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program and the International Spanish Academy (ISA) program. However, the school simultaneously maintains a toxic atmosphere driven by the students' need to attain the perfect SAT, the perfect GPA, and the perfect test grade. The classes are much more rigorous than typical high school classes and students experience a high level of stress, anxiety, and burnout, and the workload is massive no matter the class or subject. Overall, students have many opportunities to find success, but the toxic atmosphere of competition and the high stress for each student makes the school less than a 5 star rating.

I’m new to this school- and since it’s fully online due to COVID, I’ve never actually attended on campus. However, teachers and administrators have been so welcoming and attentive, it was a smooth switch!
Walton High School is a top public school in the state. The teachers and administration are amazing and care about their students. The communication and parent activity is strong as well. Academically, the students are challenged as the coursework is rigorous. Many AP and Honors classes are offered and encouraged. They also help prep students for AP exams. The transition to college will be much easier for Walton High School students because of the emphasis on academics. There are many clubs and activities for the students as well. The sports programs are well run and there is a lot of school spirit. The school was recently renovated and the campus is beautiful. The school has many resources available for a top notch experience. A downside is that there is not much diversity at the school.

Overall, the entire experience has been good. I feel that the experience has been well rounded.
