“Hi, I’m Sara! I enrolled at Walker’s as a freshman. Walker’s has always been so accepting and welcoming towards me, and our community shares a bond like family. Being a Cicerone is important to me because I am able to share my wonderful experiences at Walker’s with others interested in our school. I aim to show prospective families what separates Walker’s from other schools, and also provide information in order to help you make the right decision.”

What is your favorite class, and why?

My favorite class was Geometry because my favorite subject is math, and our teacher, Mr. C., was very encouraging and supportive. He was always happy to help us if we struggled, and made sure to incorporate humor in the classroom to promote a fun and relaxing learning environment.

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

A piece of advice I would give an incoming Walker’s student is to not be hesitant in reaching out to your teachers or advisor. They will all be more than willing to help you out, whether you need extra help on your homework, or even if you just want someone to sit down and talk to.

What do you think is the biggest benefit of attending Walker’s?

To me, the biggest benefit of attending Walker’s is that you get opportunities that you might not have been able to have in your previous schools. For example, I never thought I would be able to ride a horse at all before I started riding at Walker’s. There are many other opportunities just like riding that you can get the chance to try here at Walker’s, which you may not have even thought of doing.
