While this school may have some satisfactory classes and resources, especially in science, it absolutely fails as a mentor to those who are twice exceptional. It also has a subtle religious undertone.

Over the past few years Walker has gone down. The football team has crashed and they are just now starting to level out. The teachers and staff have started to care less and less about the students and more about themselves.

When I visited this school, I seen it to be a well- structured school. The people there were well mannered, and you couldn't ask for a nicer staff. They were very encouraging to the children as the walk down the halls to there next class.
