“Hi! My name is Amanda and I came to Walker’s as a freshman. By being a Cicerone, I hope to show prospective students and families all of the opportunities Walker’s has to offer, as well as the positive impact it has on its students!”

What is your favorite class, and why?

My favorite class is science, because I love interactive classes with hands-on activities. In science classes, there is always something new to do each day.

What is a unique experience you’ve had at Walker’s that you didn’t think you’d be involved in when arriving at Walker’s?

A unique experience that I’ve had at Walker’s that I didn’t think I would be involved in when arriving is joining the ski team. Before Walker’s, I had never raced before, and if I had not attended Walker’s, I wouldn’t have been able to try! It is now one of my favorite things to do!

What is your favorite part of your typical day at Walker’s? What do you look forward to every day?

My favorite part of a typical day at Walker’s is sports practice, whether it is soccer, skiing, or personal fitness. Not only are practices fun, but they are also a great way to get to know different people. Having practice at the end of the day is always a great thing to look forward to!

What do you think is the biggest benefit about attending school at Walker’s?

I think the biggest benefit of attending school at Walker’s is all of the opportunities to try new things. From trying a new food in Abra’s to playing a new sport, there is always an opportunity to try something new. I think that if I hadn’t come to Walker’s, I would not have been able to try as many new things.
