WHAT’S NEW Walker is constructing a 30,000-square-foot Science & Technology building, expected to open for the 2018–2019 school year, that will house middle school science labs; upper school chemistry, physics, and robotics classrooms; and media-tech suites. Former classrooms will be used for 2-D/3-D arts studios, and updated spaces for band, orchestra, dance, and the performing arts. We are also expanding our athletic facilities to create a dedicated middle school baseball/softball field.
