“My name is Justine and I joined the Walker’s community in eighth grade. I went on many tours while I was looking for a new school, and the Cicerone program made the tour at Walker’s less nerve-racking. By hearing students talk about each space in their own words, you get a more real sense of what life at Walker’s will be like.”

What advice would you give an incoming Walker’s student?

My advice for incoming students is to try everything. There are so many opportunities at Walker’s and you don’t want to leave with regrets. Take advantage of everything Walker’s has to offer. Take an extra class or try a new sport.

How do you think Walker’s has prepared you for your future?

Walker’s has prepared me for my future by teaching me how to communicate with people. Through the Walker’s community, I have learned how to share my ideas in a productive way and how to make mistakes and be okay with that.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

My favorite thing to do in my free time is head over the the barn and hang out with the horses. Even if you aren’t a rider, it’s a great place to go to de-stress and relax. When I have a bad day or I have a big test coming up, going to the barn always makes me feel better and more level-headed.
