Walton High School

Bronx, N.Y. 10468





Walton High School is named after Mary Walton, the wife of General Lewis Morris, who was a member of the continental congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. During the colonial period, Mary Walton was governess of a school for girls as well as a successful landowner. The Walton School was reorganized into one of the first junior high schools for girls in New York City (April 19, 1923). 126 girls were part of the first graduating class from there on January 27, 1926. In 1976, Walton became a coeducational High School. Walton High School is now being phased out, to be occupied by smaller schools. In 2003, the Celia Cruz Bronx School of Music was relocated to the Walton High School building, serving as home base for 250 students who also spend three days a week at Lehman College, where they receive orchestral and choral instruction.
