Philosophy

We, the staff of Walton High School, believe that all students should be offered educational experiences which prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of life in the twenty-first century.  By acknowledging and nurturing their unique talents, capabilities, and interests, we will assist all students in the realization of their potential.  We further acknowledge our responsibility to instill in students the desire for excellence and the wisdom to seek it in every aspect of their lives.  To that end, we believe that all students must acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for responsible citizenship, productive employment, life-long learning, and personal fulfillment.  We strive, then, to enhance the lives of our young people in terms of their public and private roles within the local, national, and global communities.  Therefore, all Walton High School programs and instructional efforts will prepare our students to meet these expectations.

Alma Mater

Our strong bond shall ne'er be broken,
formed at Walton High,
far surpassing wealth unspoken,
sealed by friendship's tie.
Alma Mater,
Alma Mater,
deep graven on each heart,
shall be found unwavering true,
when we in life shall part.
