Overall, my experience at this school was pretty average and very calm. I had friends from different "cliques" and homosexuality wasn't looked down upon so I knew several students who were very open from the very beginning about their sexuality which made it a very welcoming environment. This is also the fact that the teachers all had a good balance between being your teacher and being your friend, so you knew when to be a student and when you could ask advice on more personal matters or even need someone to lend an ear.

Most of my classes were adequately challenging, however, nearly every other aspect of my experience was sub-par. First, this school is good for high-achieving students, but doesn't have very many options for students who need extra help. Some teachers are very helpful for those students, and some are not. We have some great sports, but they often receive more recognition than musical or artistic extracurriculars. Not a very diverse school, but that could be expected from a small school. Overall, not a bad experience, but could definitely make some improvements.
Overall, the quality of teachers at Williams Bay is quite average. Some certainly go above and beyond, and work incredibly hard to ascertain the quality of their students' education. Despite this, we still have plenty of teachers who fall far below what is expected of them. The English department is a prime example of this. Ms. Schultz is an active and engaging teacher who incorporates new ways to understand challenging material, and is very understanding about circumstances, while remaining tough when it counts. On the other hand, Mrs. Snyder is another lovely woman, but doesn't quite teach English well. Her seniors are doing photos of vocabulary words, which is a very juvenile activity. Mostly the administration is to blame for inconsistencies within departments, and unfair treatment of teachers. Substitute teachers hired in this district are awful, one even being known for verbally abusing students, and even physically laying a hand on one recently. This staff member continues to work at Williams Bay.
