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.
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.

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.

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.
