Walton Middle School's Purpose
Walton Middle school will promote scholars who exemplify academic excellence and empower them to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Walton Middle School will cultivate an environment that will emphasize rigor, relationships, relevance, and results to ensure all students will become college and career ready.
Walton Middle school is a diverse educational community that provides our students with the foundation to become creative and critical thinkers, academic scholars, technologically proficient, and socially responsible through a nurturing system distinguished by engaging, rigorous, and differentiated instruction.
As we enter the Holiday Season, it is important to remind all Scholars and their Families the importance of coming to school on time, every school day. Just a few missed days a month adds up to several school weeks missed in a year. Did you know missing school days can make it difficult for your Scholar to learn? Additionally, did you know that all Scholars with habitual tardiness and excessive absences will not be permitted to participate in extra-curricular activities? If you need any assistance, please call our attendance office at (310) 898-6060 ext. 66606.
At Walton Middle School, our motto is: WE RISE in the 21st Century. Please help us as we strive to prepare our Scholars for the demands of the 21st Century, by ensuring your Scholar is at school on time, every school day.
