Walton Middle School Nears Completion

It’s out with the old and in with the new in Walton County as Lord & Son Construction wraps up construction on the new Walton Middle School in Defuniak Springs.

The new $30 million school’s structure is complete for all new buildings, which include new classrooms, gymnasium,, cafeteria, and administration offices.


The reconstruction of the former school in historic Defuniak Springs will make Walton Middle school safer for students and allow the Walton County School District to save even more money on energy efficiency. Those savings will ultimately go back into more projects to meet the district’s growth needs.
