I sent my child to Mother will for her high school years and I tell you I wish I sent her from day one she learned more there in her high school years then she did at Villa Madonna Chatholic school from K-8th, She learned it all from Mother williams and staff. and we are most thankful to have them around. If you want a EXCELLENT education for your child sent them to ETHLINE R. WILLIAMS PREP SCHOOL. 813-374-9139.

Mother Will gave my son a second chance. She pushes her students to do good and achieve the most to the best of their ability. She is very much under-appreciated. Thank you Mother Will!!

I was a high school drop out until I met Dr.Williams or as the children know her, Mother Will. I started a year behind in high school and I graduated on time as student body president, with the leadership award, and with honors. The school teaches students great discipline and the tools to make something of themselves in this cruel reality. The teachers are extremely involved and the curriculum is adjusted to the child's personal development. I would highly recommend the atmosphere and the teachers to any parent.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
