Walton was named an Investment School in May 2013 as part of the Cleveland Plan's goal to turn around CMSD's lowwest -performing schools and to direct resources toward areas of greatest need.
Walton's investment in its students begins at the sidewalk with the significant facilities work that the school underwent before opening to students in the fall. In addition, we are proud to share the academics, activities, and partnerships that our school offers as part of our investment in students' futures.
Walton is an Investment School with a focus on Readiness to Teach.
CMSD is grateful for and proud of our remarkable staff who demonstrate each day how they are INvested in the children of Cleveland. Please recognize that every professional who signs a Commitment Letter to work in the Investment Schools is truly going “above and beyond” to create new and better learning experiences for children.
