    This school offers a variety of clubs and activities and classes that any student may attend. While being at this highschool, I was always offered many extracurriculars that not many other schools offer. From various clubs and sports, to also stepping up your academics and even being the chance to take college classes. The staff and teachers at this school are also very useful towards the students. They make sure that everyone is on task, and will do their hardest to make sure no student is failing their class. Speaking of classes, this school also offers lots of core academics that will make the life of any student successful. From honors to AP, to even college classes, this school really offers above and beyond to their students.

    It changed throughout the years but I love everything about! Between the teachers and a different principal williamsburg charter has been the best school for my 4 years of high school. The teachers are great and have a good understanding of what kids need to know or what they are struggling with. When i needed help i always felt comfortable to go to any teacher or staff there . I really just love the school and I cant wait for everyone to see me graduate in 2019
    In Williamsburg Charter High School I was able to have a huge support system! In Williamsburg the teachers and staff love their career and give a lot to the kids and in my first high school I didn't expierence that. The staff are caring and loving and made me feel at home, and made my education in Williamsburg a wonderful expierence. I also met new friends that were on the same career path as me and had a positive attitude towards school. One thing I could say about Williamsburg is that they always go the extra mile for their students and make the environment feel safe and welcoming.
