Walton High School is a high school in Marietta, Georgia. Every October, they host the Walton Academic Challenge, which attracts teams from around the region. They were once a longtime power in local and national quizbowl, though in recent years their strength (and tournament attendance) has sharply dropped.

Longtime coach Jeanette Martin retired following the 2006-2007 year. Matt Edelstein is the current coach.
