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.      
Walton is a top high school situated in the United States. George Walton Comprehensive High School, usually referred to simply as Walton High School, is located in Marietta, Georgia and houses a student body of around 2,500.
