Read what parents are saying about Walnut Hills High School
Terrible. Please, go somewhere else. Schools like Spencer Center need more people; Walnut does not deserve any. With a high lack of culture besides the generic high school (homecoming, etc.), a prejudice against creative thinking, numerous worksheets and by-the-book teachers, this certainly falls at the bottom of any school rating I shall ever give. Unless I get homeschooled.

Intense but effective school. High AP participation. Mediocre if you don’t try but has a lot to offer those who actually try.

I have been to five other schools other than Walnut due to an active-duty parent. I feel as though this rating is high because it's in Cincinnati Public school district. My experience was that they teach you like a normal school does. There is nothing amazing about the school except how many AP classes they have or because it made a list in some newspaper. Most people get kicked out so they can keep their high ratings. They really don't care about you there. The orientation is mediocre to the ones I have experienced before and it was hard talking to a counselor about class set-up and the school in general. Overall, it's a huge school with too much going on. In my opinion, I am blessed that my parents got transferred again before I graduated from Walnut. I am also happy to say that with all the schools good and bad I graduated with a 3.8 in the NHS. I will never think highly of that school especially since I have experienced many other schools that were better. Many opinions are biased, but mines is strictly based on my diverse experiences! Happy school hunting!

My child continues to grow intellectually and emotionally due to the rigors of Walnut Hills. She is challenged by the amazing teachers. The diversity is one of the best things about WH. She is learning that not all children come from homes/families like hers. This is helping her become a more compassionate and understanding person.

Our school has an amazing theater program. Unfortunately all of the artistic achievements have been squandered by the utter adoration of the football team that our principal has. The theater and arts departments are rarely recognized and when they are its usually very brief. Unfortunately, our football team is sub-par.
