Walkerton Reviews

On paper, Walkerton is your typical farm town. Sure, we're just barely more diverse than our next door neighbor North Liberty and have more than one school within the town, but really doesn't look like anything special on the outside. Living in and around the town, however, gives you a very different experience. The size of the town is big enough that you dont have to see the same faces all the time, yet small enough that you can get pretty much anywhere you'd want to go in a 5 minute drive or a 10-15 minute walk. Along with that, the public schools are excellent. John Glenn School Corporation has a reputation in the surrounding community for being one of the best school systems in the area, as well as the music program being absolutely incredible as well. Lastly, the people and the sense of community is great for people who are looking for that. Overall, Walkerton is a great place to live for people looking for the small town experience.

Walkerton is the home to one stop light, a drug store, two banks, two gas stations, McDonalds, and a liquor store. This is my home. I am very proud to call it home. I go to the gas station to get gas and I know I will run into five people I know. We talk about things we know we will laugh at and hold on to for the rest of our lives. Walkerton is a town (not a city) where I learned honor, faith, and values. My roots are set in this tiny town of 3500. Home is where your heart is. My heart is in Walkerton.
Walkerton is a wonderful town to live in. The community atmosphere Is a way of life. People are there for each other during the good times and the bad. The town will come together when people are in need of help. It is a fairly safe place to live and you are surrounded by people who truly care. The school district of John Glenn High School is a great school to send your children. It has been rated a 4 star school for several years.
