T.C. Williams is a very large and incredibly diverse high school. It is the only one in the City of Alexandria...and it has its own movie - Remember the Titans! All of the school forms are written in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Amharic, showing where just some of the student body hails from. There are numerous learning communities within the school that cater to everything from international students who need help with English to those focused on STEM careers. It truly brings together children from every socioeconomic and ethnic class and is a unifying factor for the city.

I love TC Williams! TCW offers amazing classes that a lot of the schools in our district do not have like German, astronomy and art history. The teachers are great and always willing to help students after or before school. I am involved in three sports at TC; cross country, swim and tennis. I also love going to the football, basketball and lacrosse games. TCW is very diverse and has a lot of culture. We also have a lot of school spirit. #RememberTheTitans!
I have had an incredible experience at T.C. Williams High School. At this school, I have been given multiple opportunities to be placed in advanced classes that opened my eyes to new paths. One program I was able to participate in is the STEM program which allowed me to discover my interest in computer science and cybersecurity. I have taken classes that were extremely specific to the path I plan to follow like, AP Computer science Principles, AP Computer Science A, AP Physics 1, AP Physics C, DE International Finance. Also, I was able to go through the Academy of Finance program which opened my eyes to the world of business. One thing I do wish would improve would be the relationship with the administrators and the Students. Due to the fact that TC has around 4,000 students, they struggle to make sure the students that are succeeding are being checked up on.
