I will always have a soft spot for williamsville south, The education environment, was challenging yet, engaing. I was always supported by faculty, teachers and my peers to try new things,take new classes, and partiscipate in clubs and activities outside of the regular school day. By the end of my senior year, I was the President of The Gay Straight Allience , And active member of 4years in my School Drama club (Stage crew), As well as a mentor player, in the Wind Emsemble.
I took many AP, and honors courses in highschool. If i was struggling at all there were always resourses availible to help me out. I could ask my teacher, my peers, go to the library for extra help, or stay after school with a small study group to make sure i was staying on track.

Williamsville South High School has much to offer with it's many Clubs, Sports and Music programs. I have enjoyed being a part of their Wind Ensemble and Project Lead the Way Tech classes. These are my favorite classes that I feel will help me so much with my future goals and plans for College and my career. In band I love being a part of the concerts and Marching band. We participate in Marching Band in a Homecoming and Memorial Day Parade. But playing in only two parades does not seem like enough since everyone in Band enjoys the marching part of Band. We play during the Homecoming game but that is it for the football games. I wish Marching Band would be able to perform at every football game. I do not think it would be asking too much since everyone in band loves the Marching Band requirements. Because many students participate in watching the football games I think it would add to the school spirit and enrich Williamsville South High school.
I have been at Williamsville South for 4 years and before that my mom and my aunts went there as well. The school building itself has a lot of character with a bell tower and pillars. There is no resemblance to an office building at all, like some other schools have. There have been many improvements over the time I have spent there. They have upgrade the foot ball field and the parking lot as well as the flow of traffic. It is a shame that recently they filled in the swimming pool as it makes it very difficult for the swim team to practice and we must travel to another school in the district. The pool was not the correct size or depth. There are plenty of clubs and sports. They have a very strong music program in the district, which I love. The class size, on average, is about 25 students and there is no over crowding in the school. The Williamsville School District is one of the best in WNY and it shows!
