I transferred to Williamstown High School during 8th grade (grades 7-12 are in the high school). Within the first week I was already beginning to make friends who I still have now in 12th grade. School spirit is a very large part of Williamstown's culture, sports events and pep rallies are attended enthusiastically, no matter what grade. My only complaint about Williamstown is the curriculum. Some course are rigorous and make you college-ready but most aren't really hard enough to prepare you for the future.

Great small school! Everyone knows everyone and is like a family. Parents and teachers are involved with students and their extracurricular activities. Teachers genuinely care about students academics. This school definitely makes sure you have everything to succeed.
Williamstown High School spends a lot of focus on athletics, but has recently been putting education ahead of athletics for the students. Everyone in the school is very involved including the teachers.
