I loved Williamsport, mainly because of the atmosphere in the community. When football season was around, everyone in the community gathered around to cheer on the Wildcats and it was always incredibly exciting. Even if our team wasn’t doing too great, we would always be there supporting them on their journey. Baseball season was even modern popular; we even made it to the State Champsionships! It all couldn’t have been done without the support of the community.

My experience was average. There was a pattern of bias in all activities. Coaches, teachers, and faculty would favor certain students over others. Many faculty would leave at random points through out the school term for other jobs, leaving the students without another real teacher of their subject for months as the school would take that long to hire replacements. The school was not very thoughtful of students with frequent health issues as they would interrogate kids just returning from days of bed rest, with notes from doctors. They would also frequently paint through out the school, leaving many students breathless from the paint fumes. I must say that the school did have some dedicated teachers that were always there for their students, no matter what the situation may be.
Williamsport was a nice school that gave its students a great network to further their education outside of High School. They have good resources for their students to use if they are interest in STEM fields. They have also upgraded many of their sports and gym equipment which was much overdue. In all, Williamsport is a school that kids will feel safe going to everyday. Aside from safety, they will be given the necessary tools to get a thorough education. The only things that I would say that they need to work on is their selection of clubs. Aside from sports and band, I can only remember a handful of clubs being available. I am sure if they were to add more clubs some of the students would look forward to joining them.
