While I feel the teachers in this school are rather well educated and care rather dearly about their job, it should be noted that they are faced with a rather limiting challenge. Due to the fact that the majority of student in this school do not care enough for the teachers really to do the job to the best of their abilities or receive the resources that would help them the academic standards of this school are really quite pitiful. Personally I managed to maintain a 93+ average without having to do all too much. As long as I showed up payed attention for the majority of the class and did 90% of my homework assignments I was fine. There were never any late night study sessions with friends or cramming before the day of an exam, it was always rather laid back. All in all if your a parent looking at schools for your child, this would only be a reasonable choice if you know they are willing to actually put in the hours while at the school and show the teachers respect so that they're learnig experiencewould actually be worth the time.

Honestly i haven't been in this school for very long because I recently change here but it isn't the best school . This school has good courses but you have to search for the opportunities instead of teachers offering them to you and if they do its to their favorites. There isn't enough guidance for the teens expect if your Constantly in trouble but the good students that may need help or advice don't have a certain person to go to and this isn't right Because these are teenagers that need helping actually doing good in school and in their personal life .There isn't enough programs for kids to involve in yourself in . Every one only cares about themselves and there isn't enough teachers that actually understand your situation Academically its good but Eveything else is not good

I am a previous student at williamsburg prep, the school isn't so bad. Not much can be said about the faculty and staff, most don't want to bother with the kids in the school and dont care much. Fights are always breaking out but that is between the other schools within the building.The teachers arent recieving the supplies they need or support. Overall the school isn't all that bad, educational wise.

This is my child's 3rd yr & have 2 say I'm very dissappointed the way this yr has been going so far. I started out loving this school & now won't recommend it 2 anyone. I can't wait for my child 2 graduate & be done with it. There is no communication among the staff, they tell parents to call the school if your child is going to be out & I do & still get phone calls on my cell, @ work & @ home telling me child is not in school today. What is the point of calling to tell them when U R going 2 get 3 phone calls...there as has been 2 much drama among the kids !

my daughter who attends williamsburg prep is in the 11th grade now and i find this school to be the above standards especially for such being one of the newer schools. the staff works with your child and i like the fact the school kept you up to date with your child progress; attendance and grades. my favorite is snapgrades which i look at every night and aris to keep up with her progress.

Overall I give the school a B+. My daughter has been a student there for 1 year and I am very pleased with her progress. The teachers are concerned. Emails sent through the Snapgrades system are answered in a timely matter. Parent are always notified of school events by mail or phone. So far so good.

I attended this school for 2 years and just transferred out, in all honesty its not that bad but i would not highly recommend it. The deans are helpful as are maybe 3 teachers, but the principal is terrible and some of the teachers just don't care. Yes there are constant fights breaking out but mainly it is because of the other schools in the building.

My son has attended Williamsburg Prep for two years now, he is in tenth grade, and we are very happy with the school. The administration and faculty are strongly committed to the students. We regularly receive communications between report cards from the teachers informing us about our son's progress. I see the teachers and administration working hard day in and day out to make the school, which is only a few years old, better all the time. One of the benefits of its being a newer school is that it has no teachers who are still there simply because they have always been there. I can strongly recommend this school as a good, safe place for any parent to send their child.

this school is great... and they are preparing me to go to one of the best colleges very soon. This school is greatful to have a CollegeBound Counselor who loves what she is doing. Thanks to her, It's easy for me to write college essays and deal with applications.

This school is not a school i would advise others to attend. Fights are constantly breaking out. The teachers here are never wrong, the teachers attitudes are just incredible. Theres not much of a positive vibe going around. The lack of motivivation weighs heavly upon the school..

This is a horrible school. Students her are always fighting with each other. The teacher seem like they are underpaid and the adminstration is doing a lousy time of supporting students. I would warn any parent to not send their kid to this school. I am transferring my child to the other school in the building, the Williamsburg High School for Architecture & Design!
