    "Poor School. Needs to put as much effort into education as it does in athletics."

    "My son has used the virtual school program twice and I have found the teachers to go beyond their job to help him out in any way that they can. He has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, so sometimes it takes some extra explaining, some extra understanding and a little boost to his self confidence to get him through. I can always count on the teachers in the virtual school to want the best for the student and to help them achieve it. I would love to see more virtual classes in the future. Thank you, S. Reynolds"

    "Teachers don't return emails, with the rare exception of just a few who actually care. Most of the newer, younger teachers don't give a flip about anything, very unprofessional. Students there have said the interior design teacher actually sends students out to get her fast food, during school hours. Mr. Hughes is a great guy, but he needs to clean house. They need some decent math and science teachers. Only a few like Yates, King and Jenkins are any good. They really need some decent math teachers. Parents can't be involved because most teachers don't communicate."

    "Walton high scool is an wonderful school. Every single teacher cares about you and your academics. its a wonderful experience to have the teachers that i have there. I am currently a senior and i have enjoyed every year. Mr. Hughes is a great principal. He interacts with the students on a daily basis and even at the meetings he delivers a strong message about the academics. The guidence counselor is also very great. She lets me know what i need to do to graduate or even what scholarships i can even achieve. Just a terrific school all the way through."

    "I'm a former student of this school. When I moved here and entered this school, I was soon extremely disappointed in the school. The teachers a horrid. I had a science teacher that spent half of the year on just the first five chapters of our book. Not only that, but he neither majored or minored in science and had little knowledge of the subject. I found myself tutoring many of my fellow students. This was last year, 2011. I find it sad that one of my teachers did not know that ignorant was not equivalent to the word stupid. I'm glad that I switched schools to go to Collegiate in Niceville. I saw no future for myself at Walton. I wish I had more space to continue on about the lack of leadership from the principal. There is a lack of academic programs and focus on academics overall. There is more focus on sports than academics. I found myself in my freshman year taking freshman classes with seniors that kept failing. They also only offer two foreign languages, Spanish and French, for sophomores and up. That's quite inconvenient if you're wanting to get your two years foreign language out of the way so you can take other classes towards college. I would never send my children here."
