Archbishop Williams High School Reviews

I loved AWHS! It is a middle sized Catholic high school that was a family. All students were friendly with each other, and the teachers seemed to genuine care for each student. The Principal would come to every sports meet/game and cheer with the other fans. In addition, our principal would mail us personal letters of congratulations/encouragement when we accomplished something great, were injured or even when we failed at something. I truly did not want to graduate, because AWHS was home to me.

I loved Archbishop Williams high school! The staff and teachers were great and very helpful. The guidance councilors were very helpful with the stressful college application process. The school and administration were very understanding and caring in events of a tragedy. The food wasn't bad, but could be improved.
I graduated last year and truly loved being part of the community. I found this school community welcoming and caring. Coming from outside of Boston, I felt like it was my home. This school offered me so many opportunities to do things I loved. It is fair that the more you put in, the better experience you gain. Falculties listened to my needs and supported me in all ways. The school is proud of its catholic identity which students are involved. I was academically challenged, but always reminded to have faith in my ability - not to fear. Being part of this school aided me to the discovery of my passion and identity. For this reason, and this reason along, I would like to rate five stars. However, I do have a concern. I graduated last year, but I am really concerned about the upcoming classes. Talking to and spending time with the underclassmen, I found disrespectfulness and rudeness that has not been exist in any previous classes. Hoping this offers you an holistic view of the school.
