I agree the 4 subject school day doesn't challenge our students enough. It in no way prepares them for the real world where multitasking and time management will be crucial in their pursuits at higher education and competitive employment. The expections of students by teachers and adminstration at this school is mediocre at best. Come on WASHINGTON County. Let's think OUTSIDE THE BOX.....above and beyond "no student left behind."

Willaimsport high school is one of the best school in washington county. the 4 subject class scedule allows for more focus into classes. and the teachers all provide a friendly learning enviornment. the staff shows that they care about education as they urge everyone to take AP classes whenever thay can. they have a wide range of extracirricular activites and the best band of anywhere.

I think that in the 2005 yearbook there should be many different faces shown other than just a few faces shown repeatedly there should be faces shown of all grade levels and seniors should be shown throughout the whole year book. This would make the parents and students happier seeing more then just a few of the same faces.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
