As a graduate, I truly appreciated my Walker education once I got to college. I felt very confident and prepared even in a challenging college environment like Duke. The teachers are terrific; I had enthusiastic, intellectual teachers that I kept in touch with after leaving the school. I also appreciated ...  Read more

The preschool is fantastic! Located in it's own building with a dedicated playground, library, and lunchroom, the preschool caters to the youngest of students. Teachers work with every student to make sure that they become both confident and capable. My kids loved every minute and thought they were playing ...  Read more

I have 2 boys who have been at Walker for 10+ years. Their teachers have been excellent, and the experiences have been wonderful. I would recommend Walker over public schools and any other private school.

A wonderful investment. While our family makes sacrifices to have our children attend, we feel very good about our 'daily dividends' and the long term return!

They entered Walker after having attended another private school in the area from kindergarten through 3rd/4th, and homeschooled for 2 years. Walker offered a "study ...  Read more

Not all teachers are equal and the same applies to teachers at Walker as well. Our child got stuck with a REALLY BAD one this year. Don't be fooled by the high tuition and manicured grounds.

I went to Walker for 9 years, and I thought it was pretty good. The kids and staff are fun, and as far as academics go, the math program is excellent, but the English department is lacking; more effort is given to making the students feel good about what they write, rather than focusing on improving ...  Read more
