T.C. is an excellent school and the community is wonderful. The faculty and staff work have good heads on their shoulders, providing an excellent academic experience and reminding the students that they must work hard to succeed in today's competitive world.
Our family feels fortunate to have found this “GREAT!’ school. T.C. demands academic excellence from its students and expects parents to support this. We think the school prepares students well to succeed in subsequent higher education. We fully embrace how T.C.’s educators stress the important of academic success to succeed in the real world.
T.C. Williams lives up to its reputation as one of the best public prep schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The staff is enthusiastic and dedicated. The administration is good. The curriculum in modern. Technology and extra-curricular resources are terrific. The physical plant is new. TCW provides a great deal of community & school spirit and an ideal place for learning. It is a very good high school with unique qualities. Highly recommended.
The Washington Post's 2015 Challenge Index ranks T.C. as the 710th most challenging High School in the county, in the top 3.2% nationally. The Challenge Index data is based on over 22,000 high schools and is a measure of how many AP or IB exams were given divided by the number of graduating seniors. Impressive.
We continue to have a great experience with the Alexandria City Public Schools on many levels. Currently, our child attends T.C. Williams, however, we found George Washington Middle and Maury Elementary to be wonderful schools, too.
T.C. is a an super school which provides our child with some of the DC-area's most acclaimed teachers, with excellent facilities, and a positive culture. We are hopeful that our child and her classmates will be accepted into top universities nationwide (and internationally) as is typical for graduates of this school. We also like the fact that the school does not instill the students with an unhealthy sens of entitlement, which could potentially be a problem in affluent Alexandria. It is a competitive world, and we think T.C. prepares our daugher well to compete.
I feel that I was part of a high-achieving environment at TC and would highly recommend it as a truly great school. I had the opportunity to take many AP classes at TC for which I receive credit at UVA. This will allow me to graduate with a double major in four years.
