Ethel Walker School review by High Point University student: Ethel Walker provides not only an atmosphere for girls to grow academically but also on the athletic fields, in theater, dance studio, equestrian ring and all other areas of extracurricular arenas. I began my days at Ethel Walker as a girl and graduated as a young woman. The class sizes are small, in some cases between 6-10 students, which allows for incredible relationships to be formed with the teachers. One of my favorite parts of attending Walkers was the advising program throughout the entire time I was there. Not only did we meet with advisors weekly but my advisor was there for me through so many of the good and bad times. The teachers at Walkers become an extended family for the students. My teachers always made time in their busy days to help me if I needed extra help on an assignment or if I even just wanted to talk. There is a special bond with Walkers girls and their professors. I felt extremely prepared going into college, especially when it came to writing. The English and Language programs at Walkers are so strong that I was placed in very high levels once I got to university. Classes at Walkers are heavily discussion based, which is similar to my univeristy now, so I felt prepared and able to raise my hand and talk in class. While many girls get to college and feel like they needed to impress boys in class and did not talk or ask questions, I was empowered to speak my mind and raise my hand in class. Walkers teaches girls how to solve problems, work in groups and succeed. Aside from academics, Walkers helps young women grow and find their passions. There is a bond between all Walkers girls that is evident from the moment.… more
