High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Walnut Hills High School is a public college preparatory high school in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. It is part of the Cincinnati Public Schools. It accommodates grades seven through twelve. The school was opened in September 1895 on the corner of Ashland and Burdett Avenues in Cincinnati. It began with twenty teachers and 684 students. The mascot is the eagle, and the sports teams are known as the Eagles while the school colors are blue and gold.
Walnut Hills has long admitted only students who pass a standardized test. College preparatory programs are also available in the city's other high schools. Admission to the college preparatory program, whether in a district high school or at Walnut Hills, requires passing a standardized test. At Walnut Hills after 1919, students in the 7th Grade were called Effies and those in the 8th grade were called E flats. This derives from a different scheme for naming classes that was in use in the early part of the 20th century.
The school curriculum, as well as curricular and extra curricular activities, includes experiences that enable students to realize personal and civic goals which allow them to mature and to be responsible members of our constantly changing society. The sports teams have played in a number of leagues since the demise of the Public High School League in 1984. Exceptions are club teams like the rugby team, which plays a unique schedule.

Newsweek named it the 65th best public high school in America in 2006 and it maintains a culturally diverse student body. The mission of Walnut Hills High School is to prepare students to become confident, competent, ethical individuals and responsible citizens by creating a positive and nurturing school environment where staff, students, parents and the community work together to promote lifelong learning and to provide opportunities for students to reach their maximum potential.
