I absolutely loved my experience in WCS. The teachers were dedicated and extra-curriculars were easy to come by, and everyone felt included. There's only two reasons it didn't get five out of five stars from me, and here's why. First of all, in my four years at CHS, I had three different principals. Three. That may just be school-specific, but keeping a principal was a hard task. Second reason they didn't get five out of five stars was because we had a new superintendent of schools this past year (my senior year). In the fall, things were looking much better with him at the helm as opposed to the previous head of schools, but then when COVID came about, he addressed the students in possibly the worst manner possible. Saying how things were "never going to be the same again", his lawyer brain did not help ease the minds of students within the district and caused mass sadness within the student population. However, he has no influence over teacher's agendas, and that is very good!

I am a high school student in Williamson county schools, The academics and Teachers have found to be excellent! The teacher work hard to help and get to know their students. We have lots of clubs and activities and they are always open to more ideas. Williamson County also has high performance ratings in each sports team! The resources available to all students as far as stars councilors and health advisers helps bring everyone together. The food is not the best nor is the diversity but we are just as welcome to new diverse students and teachers. Administration and the facilities are amazing are very helpful at all times.
We have had many good teachers while in WCS, but the central office has proven itself to be bureaucratic and more interested in enforcing bureaucratic, senseless policies than in student well-being. My child who has an IEP at least has a team of people looking out for his long-term interests, but my other child has gotten lost in the cracks despite our best efforts to keep that from happening. I am extremely disappointed.

This is all without getting into the horribly implemented online education program. I know that it is a pandemic, but they had from March to August to prepare. Maybe more people signed up than they expected, but they acted like they had no warning online school might be necessary during a pandemic. I have been ashamed to tell people living in other states what are online middle school program is like -- education mostly provided by boring videos on Edgenuity and many teachers who are also teaching in-person full-time and have little time for online students.
