The Williston Northampton School5

It's hard to imagine a school with more to offer. The teachers are dynamic, knowledgeable and committed, the breadth of classes is fantastic, the culture is warm and supportive, and the athletics and arts are top notch. Then you add the beautiful and enriching location, and our child couldn't be happier or better served. This is our third experience with private schools over the years and we just couldn't be more pleased.
My 2 daughters went to Williston Northampton and both of them love the school. Without the education there, my daughters wouldn't have gotten into the top 25 universities. This school is for self-motivated and self-disiplined young adults, with all the support one needs from the school. It is challenging academically, but not to the degree where your child would become a bookworm. Diversified and all-rounded are best to describe Williston Northampton.
There is no comparison when it comes to academics in this area. The exposure to cultural diversity is also invaluable. Wonderful teachers and learning environment. Teachers really care. Large investment, worth every penny.
I had one son graduate in 2000. He flourished in this environment. The school is geared toward self-starters and motivated students. This school would not have worked for my other son. He needs prodding.A great variety of classes and activities for a school of this size. Good communication between school and parents. My son found college less challenging after graduating from WNS and is now a first year med student. Worth the investment and then some!
