    Williston challenged me as a person and scholar and helped me grow into the person I am today. With an incredible academic and residential faculty, Williston offers all of its students an opportunity to flourish. The science program is amazing, the arts program is empowering, and the sports are wonderful. Everyone has a place here and there is something for everyone. I will say that Williston has previously struggled with being fair and inclusive for all, but has made huge strides in improving on campus resources for the diverse community that attends. I would recommend Williston to anyone looking to challenge themselves and who is searching for a wonderful high school experience.

    I went to Williston from 7th to 12th grade and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The school challenged my academically, athletically, and socially. It truly made me a well rounded person. The faculty care about every individual student and I could not feel more prepared for college. Thank you Williston for making me who I am today!
    I'm a two-year senior from the east coast, and coming to Williston was one of the best decisions of my life. I was very nervous coming to Williston in my junior year of high school, as I was worried that I would not fit-in within already formed cliques. However, people welcomed me with open arms. WHat truly stands out about Williston is the community. Everyone has a place, and no one is forced to fit into a certain "athlete", "theater", or "nerd" bubble. We are free and encouraged to fully pursue our interests and are provided with all the resources we need to do so. There are amazing arts resources, STEM programs, and athletics programs. Everyone is encouraged to participate in activities with our student activities club, wildest cats. Teachers are extremely supportive as well. Overall, Williston is a wonderful school, and I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in a supportive, diverse environment.
