Many teachers at the school are outstanding, but several have been known to neglect students. Extreme favoritism, racism, and lack of care towards students. These teachers are not an ideal example/role model for learning children, especially when they're going though a vulnerable phase in their lives.

Very happy with Williston central school after my two children were there for 9 years. Both have mild learning disabilities but are on target with their peers due to extra help given by the school. The school is very good and resolving student conflicts as well.

Great school! My son Is beyond his grade level In ability and the school accommodates that through its flexibility. He is in a multiple-age track, though other options exist for other learnings styles, including looping with the same class two years in a row. We also like the small town community with big town amenities.

The Williston schools cannot be considered excellent because there is not a strong literacy curriculum. In the K-2 program there is a strong bias toward teaching reading using the whole language approach. Results of research by the National Reading Panel have been largely ignored and the extremely expensive, but minimally effective Reading Recovery Program is used. Although the Fundations Program and Lexia are used to teach phonics, this is taught seperately and students are not taught to apply phonics to reading. The teachers, although well meaning are not well trained in teaching reading. There is an overemphasis on technology compared to teaching basic skills.

Allen Brook School (K-4) is a great elementary school in Williston. Wonderfully caring, involved teachers and principal, lots of schoolwide energy, and wide variety of extracurricular programs, themes, and events... Friday morning music in the lobby, 'Walk to School Wednesday', Author's Tea, and global warming week are just a sampling of the positive energy displayed at this school.
