Joe Walker's Vision

At the 1972 dedication of Joe Walker Middle School, then-member of the Westside Union School District School Board, James Skalicky stated, “We all want the best education possible for our children; an education that creates enthusiasm and pride in one’s accomplishments; one that stimulates the inner self for a desire of understanding people, cultures, society, and education itself.” To fulfill this vision, Joe Walker Middle School creates a culture of success by partnering with community organizations to promote instructional relevance in our educational program. In order to best prepare our students for success with twenty-first century skills, we provide a balanced curriculum that educates the whole child combining science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with the arts and humanities. Every child will receive a STEALTH education at Joe Walker Middle School.
