This school is an academic model for all local schools. The students are challenged, assisted and cherished by the staff and administration. My child enjoys every aspect of this school. If you can make the sacrifice to send your child to Williams, do not hesitate. It is well worth it.

I will never stop thanking my parents for sending me to Williams. It is an incredibly accepting environment, and the teachers honestly want to see their students succeed. The Williams School is not easy academically, but it has prepared me for college in every way possible.
