The Williamsport area high school is a place were you can get involved with the things you like to do. You can join a CTE program in the career field you wish to proceed and graduate with a job in that field. The high school also has many clubs you can join and participate in. For example, debate club, Odyssey of the mind, CTE club's, and much more. If there is a club we don't have you have the opportunity to start it. We have many sports indoor and outdoor. Williamsport is known for there music programs. They have many programs you can join. The Mascot is a Mr. Millionaire. The high school also has a marching band that works really hard and preforms at football games and competitions. There is really nothing to be changed. This school is just an amazing school.
I love WAHS, the teachers are amazing and the programs are astonishing. The music and arts department is amazing, especially the orchestra. The staff has really helped me find a pathway for future careers and there’s something for everyone. I love that there is a lot of diversity.
