Williamsburg Preparatory School Reviews

Throughout my high school career, I've noticed that I was constantly being supported by peers and teachers. My teachers have always been there to support me academically, whether it's staying after school or assisting their students during their lunch period.
Personally, I've never found this school to be challenging, but I was more challenged when I took AP classes.
Also, this school is a predominantly Hispanic/ Black public school, there are very few Asian and White students.
The facilities are mostly clean, but there has always been an issue with lunchroom and gym facilities. The lunchroom isn't always clean and the gym facilities don't have enough equipment for all of the students.
Williamsburg Preparatory is a College Bound Initiative school where they help students with their college search. Due to the large class of seniors, there were times where I felt like having a one-on-one conversation was challenging. Overall, they do the very best that they can!!!

Every teacher and staff member is committed to helping students learn and grow to their fullest potential. Classes are rigorous and prepare students for college and beyond, as well as small and manageable enough to foster a close knit, hands on learning environment. The school spirit is contagious and every student and faculty member does their best to ensure a welcoming atmosphere no matter what.
Williamsburg Preparatory is a great High School. Teachers are very involved with students in and out of the classrooms.i do spontaneous pop ups and I love when everyone (staff,teachers,students,school safety) just works together no matter what!
