Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design is an okay school, but one thing it teaches is Architecture classes, which not many schools have. Its a great way to learn these software and we even get a certificate for finishing an AutoCAD test which is great for our resume and getting into an Architecture major.

Williamsburg High School is a decent school. If you are interested in Architecture and Design, you should be fine here. The architecture teachers here are qualified and know what they are teaching. There are plenty of opportunities. Right now, I am currently doing an internship at the Empire State Building. It's not a bad school.
It's an okay school, i felt like there was only stuff that was geared towards certain students and there wasn't much choice. Take for example sports there are only 2 varsity teams for boys, baseball and basketball. Most of the students don't care about their education. If you have a teacher named baldwin run the other way switch your schedule do something he's terrible
