This was a great school! Both of my children graduated from Williams Middle School with Honors! They both took Honors classes and participated in numerous activities. They had great teachers! The faculty was very helpful and friendly to both my children and me! I was involved as a parent 100% because I wanted my children to excel! We are thankful for such wonderful staff members!

This school had very devoted staff and administration, however the student population was not diverse and there was a great deal of misbehavior.

In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score a C or above.
