I am a freshman here. It's just amazing to see that a school can have virtually no bullying! I can't speak for athletics, but I can speak for the fantastic music program they have created. It's more than a bunch of notes on a page; it's a community that includes everyone.
I recently transferred to South for my Junior year, because I was unhappy at the Catholic school I was in. The community of students here is fantastic, and very welcoming to new students. The academics are excellent as long as one challenges himself. As a transfer from a Catholic school, I love the fewer restrictions during the day. While it may seem unimportant overall, it's often the little things that make the difference between whether you are happy at your school or not.
I moved to the school area for my Junior year. Great teachers, students and balance of academics and fun. The administration was fair, logical and progressive. The kids were friendly and appropriate.
I moved here my sophmore year and all the kids were so inviting and took me in with open arms. There really aren't any cliques. I was sitting at a table full of friends my second week there and the teachers are always available to you. My guidance counselor is amazing, the best Ive ever had. and I can tell he really wants the best experience for me at this school and afterwards. I highly highly highly recommend it.
This is school is one of the only schools I have been to where the re are no cliques, there is no hate, and being different makes you cool.
Only went here as a freshman, but this school has a lot of spirit. I really felt like a part of the community, and everyone I met was friendly.
Williamsville South offers extremely high quality academic programs, a large variety of clubs, good sports teams, and a great music program. Teachers are caring and available to parents and students. The principal and his administrative assistants seem to be available and very capable. All in all, South has been a great experience for my child.
I loved going to this school! The entire environment and community is geared toward helping every student, and encouraging every student to do their best. The current prinicpal is fantastic, truly a fair person and a wonderful role model, he actually cares about every student. I feel lucky to have attended such a warm school, and I feel that it has helped me to get into the great college that I now attend.
This is the best of the Williamsville high schools! The smallest and most personal, there is more of a community atmosphere that promotes a feeling of belonging. There are generous teachers who love what they do and are truly interested in the student's well-being.
