Williams is a school that focuses on academic Instruction. Instructional time is rarely interrupted and students are expected to grow in independence, academics and maturity.

Williams School would be a great school if the principal , and assistant principal were removed. When a school is run like a prison , the children are affected in a negative setting .Put someone who cares for the students and listens to the parents in these positions and the school would thrive . Children would want to attend this school. Look around we have so many private schools for our children in Pell City. Why is that ? Because the school system fails our children.Rate this school 1 star. The school board needs to listen to the parents.

This school apparently has the most tightly knit faculty in the whole system. They are very concerned with the progress and transition of students frot eh two years tehy are there. Those teachers seem to spend a lot of time focused on individual student achievment. They are constantly trying something new in the classroom in order to reach each kid.
