This school provided me with the means to achieve amazing academic and extracurricular achievement through challenging coursework, a vast array of clubs and organizations, and school -wide events. There were so many oppertunities to get involved, try new things, and to meet others. The school always valued diversity, inclusion, and well-being. They music program was excellent and always presented students with oppertunities to share their talents between the annual showcases, theater productions, and East Coffee House productions. With all of this in mind I rate my overall experience very highly, only wishing to see change in our school mascot costume, which could really use a makeover.

I have been in the Williamsville Central School District for most of my time as a student. During this time I have made multiple close friends and good memories. I have also grown a lot in my understanding or important subjects such as math, English, history, and science. I have become involved in clubs such as Technology Student Association and Ping Pong Club where I can have fun and socialize during my leisure time. Despite this, I am troubled by the somewhat dangerous and spontaneous circumstances the district encounters. Multiple bomb threats and fights have taken away from the mostly rich environment.
The Williamsville Central School District provided great education. I was in this school system K-12, and I have learned many things inside and outside of a classroom setting. The administration, faculty, and staff are wonderful - very helpful, intelligent, and kind. The student life is great in terms of academics and extracurricular activities like clubs and sports. The faculty, staff, and students provide a sense of community within this district. I enjoyed my time in this school system - from Country Parkway Elementary, to Transit Middle School, then graduating from Williamsville East High School, I have had many opportunities and experiences.
