Very poor school the leadership here is ridiculous. my child had an incident with another student where the student pushed him and I was told that he gave a high-five to the other student. The teachers only follow behind their leader so the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I have been told that my son's teacher had said things to him that were very much out of place. You ask for a conference and the principle says what issue are you having. Whaat???

I would appreciate more communication with moy daughter's teacher, but overall the school is really welcoming. I don't think people really appreciate the opprotunites of this school offers to help the whole family. I commend the on the daddy and me breakfast on Oct. 26, 2012.

I have two children at Williford and it is a great place for children to learn. They have lots of technology and are always highlighting the wonderful projects the children are involved in. I would recommend Williford to any parent who is moving into that school district

I moved here four months ago and registered my child @ Williford. I find that the teachers are understanding and cooperative. I like the family like atmosphere. My children has improved in their academics and socialization skills. Each month there has been an exciting event. I missed the fall festival but I heard it was spectacular. I think that is a great school with an excellent vision.

You can catch some of the staff members at various times outside by the gas meter smoking in a tobacco-free environment while during school hours. Students are walking pass these individuals while they are smoking on school property. Teachers are conversating around the students about their parents in a negative way. When parents are concern about their child's safety and education, the principal always says she doesn't want to deal with it. Students are not wanting to go to school due to staff threats. Principal said parents are not allowed to be in their child's classroom to volunteer and interact with the students. Teachers saying rude comments to parents. If you visit you can see alot beside learning.
