Here at Walker High School, we are part of the elite. We are fortunate to have an outstanding faculty that cares and is concerned about the knowledge and well-being of the students. The up-to-date technology at Walker is the best around. With outstanding teachers and technology resources comes outstanding academic achievement. Not only do our students excel in academics, we also excel in athletics. And lastly, our student’s school spirit is by far the best around. In my opinion, these “Top Five” make Walker High School one of a kind and top of the class.
Our great faculty is strides above the rest. Not only do our teachers have a concern for our learning, but we have a very personable administration as well. The teachers here at Walker are constantly striving to come up with new, fun ways to get the students interested in learning. Likewise, our counselors, Mrs. Higgins, Mrs. Cain, and Mrs. Parnell, do more than enough to invest in the students’ futures. With college prep and getting the word out on scholarships and application deadlines, they want nothing but the best for us. The Administration is the most personable around. Principals make every effort to know the students and stay interactive with them. These qualities of our faculty and staff are more than enough to get it to the top of my list.
The technology resources at Walker are up-to-date and provide students with multiple pathways to succeed. It is obvious that technology is a top priority at WHS. With new DELL computers, iPod Touches, three laptop carts, multiple computer labs, and an IVC lab, Walker is in the “here and now”. It is also in the works to make Walker High School a completely wireless school and provide wireless Internet to the entire campus.
Academically our school is known throughout the state. High standards set by parents, and teachers lead our students to be some of the best. With ACT scores and standardized test scores at the top of the chart Walker High school is ranked, and deservingly so, as one of the best around. Not only do our students excel in the classroom, but on the court and field as well. Athletically, Walker is outstanding. Every year our sports teams go far into playoffs and regionals. Walker High School is a threat in the athletic world and rightly so. The athletes here work hard, throughout the summer and school year to become the best they can be out on the field.
Lastly, the school spirit is unlike any other. The student support of Walker gives it a boost and makes it what it is. HS students love to cheer on the Vikes whether it’s on the field or court. Our student’s eagerness to be behind the school sports teams is phenomenal and gives Walker personality and flare! Walker High School is an outstanding school, and to have the honor of going here is a privilege our students will cherish forever. These “Top Five” attributes of Walker High School gives it a unique quality that sets it above the rest, making it a great close knit family, and one that we will always remember.
