I graduated from Walnut. The school prepares students very well, in addition to giving them a great amount of "street smarts" which make the transition into college much easier. Walnut has a stellar reputation with colleges throughout the country (the top kids go to Ivy League caliber schools), students ...  Read more

Having graduated three children in two years from Walnut and having been involved as any parent in athletic, academic, social, and fundraising efforts at Walnut Hills the last 6 years, I can say - without hesitation - that the previous posts claiming a drug problem at Walnut Hills are most-likely by ...  Read more
