As satisfied as I am with the academics here, I feel as though there is a lack of extracurricular opportunities. My child has found it hard to get involved because not much is offered outside of the classrooms; it seems as though the two main activities are athletics and theater, and that does not cater to the diverse interests of the entire student body. Other than that, everything else at AWHS is top notch.

AWHS is an excellent school, with an outstanding administration and teaching staff! My kids received such a well-rounded education, made lifelong friends at Archies and they were fully prepared for adult life and college. Don't think twice about sending your children here, you won't be disappointed!

Best choice for my daughter, such a difference from the public schools in our town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. She just loves her teachers( wonderful and caring) and has made great friends! If you are thinking about sending your child don't hesitate.

Outstanding! This was the best thing we have ever done for both of our children. Strong sense of community amongst students, faculty, and parents. My children have reinforced their sense of commitment to leadership and giving. Athletic program is great! Thank you, AWHS!

We had four children educated at Williams. It is by far the best value I have ever received for my money. I hope my children send their children to A.W.H.S.

My daughter has been in private catholic school all her life, she finished up last year at achies and now she attending a private college in New hamshire. I feel it was the best spent money you could ever do for your children. She very happy now and was truly prepared for college. Thankyou so much for a wonderful experience and a great education for my daughter. If you can afford it send them on too private school.

Best money I ever spent! The tuition was well worth keeping my son in a school which reinforced his faith and what he was taught at home, not undercutting parents at every turn and forcing sex on them like in public school. Discipline was never a problem their either. Four trouble-free years.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
