My oldest grandson attended walker from kindergarten to fifth grade. Then he moved on to Northside middle school from six grade to the eighth grade and is now in high school, and I can't say enough good things about the teachers the principles who work so hard every day. To pay attention to each student. I also Attended Walker Elementary, and Northside High School and nothings changed it is still an incredible school.
