My child went to Williams and I heard so much about how good a school it was. He is now having to take courses over again that he took at Williams and passed. Half the kids don't even seem to understand their assignments. I would think twice about sending my kids to this school now that I know so much more.
The learning experiences my child had at Williams was helpful in making him more responsible for his assignments.He especially begin to realize the importance of personal responsibilities with school work as well as behavior. Teachers were ready to work with us to help with any problems that arose and kept us informed. There are many programs for students to get involved with in extracurricular areas. I find the curriculum to be well-rounded for the students. I am very pleased that he attends Williams.
Want your child to grow up to a corporate desk jockey? Send him or her to Williams. Of the three main teachers my child has, one is terrible, one is worse, and the other is inconsistent at best. My child is in the gifted class, which is a good thing because I understand outside the gifted the school is worse. Detail and homework oriented are the most important things at young. Instilling a love of learning is not even in the gameplan. We are very disappointed with Williams but continue to go because the IBHS is supposed to be so good. Sending your child to this school is akin to going to corporate tolerance seminars 180 days/year.
I love williams! It is an awesome school!They have great feild trips and they have like 10 feild trips! The teachers are great and the atmosphere is very nice. It is the best! Go Cougars!
Williams was a great school, the field trips all throughout the year were awesome, but that might be about it. Many teachers aren't quite up to snuff, though the others are wonderful. The campus is very well kept, and there is always beautiful art work by students that kept with the international theme. The students can wait on the patio after lunch, which is a great time to hang out and relax between classes. Parents have plenty of opportunities to participate in the school activities, and the programs offered are wonderful. Williams is great and is living up to it's IB standards.
William is a great school! My daughter went there for 6th grade and 1/2 of 7th grade. We moved to another town but I wish I could take Williams with us. Teachers really teach with their hearts and kids are allowed to express their ideas without recriminations. From the Principal to the Janitors everyone gives their best for students safety and learning. I recommend Williams to all students and to all parents whose their kids success in life is a priority. My oldest daughter also went to Williams(BT Washington at that time) and graduated in high school (6.96 GPA). Today she is in 3rd year in college in NY and doing wonderful. I am sure that her success has a lot to do with Williams way of teaching and caring for their students. If more schools were like Williams, we would have less problems with our teens. Many thanks to everyone at Williams!
Aa great and wonderfull school. Very challenging..I givr it a 'a +++++++' teachers are great and the enviroment for the students is remakrkable. The kids really learn. The only problem is the commute (its a magnet school) and the school buses...The magnet school bus program is good.
The school overall is great. The kids leave with quite an increased knowledge. The teachers are wonderful but the principal is of very little help if you have a problem. However, the Assistant Principal's are terrific and caring about the students.
I am currently a student at Williams Middle Magnet and I love it! Students are constantly being challenged by their teachers in the academic world in creative ways. One of my favorite school projects was building my own animal cell in science. We also have our own 'Model United Nations' that allows students to discuss current global issues in a debate form. I would recomed this school to any middle school-age student looking for a great way to be challenged.
