TC is widely recognized as one of the best schools in Virginia with high caliber faculty, a modern curriculum and state of the art facilities.

Amazing teachers, whether concerning their breadth of knowledge, their care for students or their passion for teaching...simply the best, from here to eternity.

T.C. W. offers an incredibly diverse education opportunity for students of all levels with possibly the most diverse student body anywhere in the United States. The facility is unmatched. I could not be happier with the experience both of my children received as Titans

TC Williams provides our children with a great education. Go see the school and meet the educators, students and families and you will see this in a tangible way. Do not be mislead by this website's flawed methodology in rating the school. Going forward, the facilities of this school and those of the rest of ACPS will be even more outstanding as the community just voted to raise taxes in a meaningful way to pay for massive capital improvements in public schools.

T.C. is an excellent high school. Both my son and daughter attended. I was well pleased with their preparation for college. They have told me that they were far ahead of their college classmates in every subject area.



- a student
The Washington Post's 2016 Challenge Index ranks T.C. as the 804th most challenging High School in the county, in the top 3.6% nationally.



- a parent
We think our children receive an excellent education at TC and highly recommend it to other families because: 1.) The teachers are certified which means they have the skills to share the latest research with students which is especially important in STEM fields. 2.) The school is academically effective. Our children and their large cohort of college-bound peers perform at high levels by any standard. The list of schools to which TC grads are admitted (throughout the U.S. and abroad) is impressive. 3.) Our children are exposed to many families and students who are not homogeneous or "like-minded." We think this will serve them well in life. 4.) The Alexandria community supports the school in amazing ways such as the Alexandria Scholarship Fund.

Niche.com names Alexandria City Public Schools as the seventh best in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Virginia is ranked as 11th in the nation for best school systems. TC is a great school in a highly acclaimed school district.



- a parent
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.
