My daughter is in 6th Grade at WMS and I was worried about the Middle School years being difficult. I have been proven wrong. This is my daughter's best year of schooling. She is happier then I've ever seen her. She is excelling in her classes and loves all her teachers. The school is warm and welcoming and the staff is always looking out for the kids. The building needs updating, only negative.
I looked carefully when deciding on a middle school, and my family moved to Longmeadow because the schools are suppose to be great. I have found that Williams has some wonderful teachers and staff, but the administration is unfriendly and lacking in professionalism. I have witnessed inappropriate behavior on more than one occasion by the assistant principal and the principal. There is a lack of community that is missing from the school, and I am guessing it is because of this poor leadership. Academically they are very good but It is unfortunate that the leadership does not also work toward creating a caring community.
Are you looking for a fun, challenging, educational opportunity? Then Williams is the place for you!!! The staff is amazing, and love to help kids. The teachers create fun and new ways to help kids learn and are the best in the business!
Williams has far surpassed my expectations of public school. Coming from a private school, I was hesitant to send my daughter to WMS, but it turned out that it was pleasantly challenging without stressing her.
