Senior: My experience at Williamsburg was really great. Some of my favorite things about high school were the teachers, the sports, and all the technology. The teachers really took an interest in me and wanted to get to know me. In a smaller class, you get to have a lot of one-on-one time where you really get to learn. Sports were really fun and all of the other activities offered. I participated in basketball, golf, DECA, NHS, and SOAR. Also the laptops they offered helped me learn in a way that was set up for me. I enjoyed the technology in the classrooms. The only thing they could improve on would be getting me ready for college. A class for scholarships and applications to colleges would be really helpful. But overall, a great school.

Senior: Something that I admire about this school is that the teachers strive to educate the students to the best of their abilities and care about our success and want us to succeed. One thing that I would change about the school, targeted toward seniors specifically, is college readiness. In our district, many teachers accept late work and allow redos on homework and tests. I am not necessarily saying that this is a negative thing because it gives the students opportunities to fix and learn from their mistakes, but treating your final year of high school like college would greatly help. I have also brought up the idea of having mock-finals and mock-midterms to give the senior class of taste of what college tests and preparing for those tests are like.

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
