School Reviews

  • Recommended September 16, 2010 - The Academic quality could be better, but is not the worst. There is no band, but there is plenty of arts here: construction, welding, woods, and even a battle bots iq club(2nd place nationals in '09. Not of a lot of awards except for the old band. Facilities are adequit and very clean for a high school. Lots of parental involvement in the small Williams community. Good school - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended March 09, 2009 - Academic programs have been cut, including the ever famous marching band, or are poorly managed. Music students have had a devasting school year after having band cut do to an inadequate band director; who, in my opinion, put the children down unlike their previous director who encouraged them to have fun and enjoy music. Academics are fairly good, just your basic stuff, nothing advance. Athletics are all set however, they get whatever they want! Facilities, not even going to comment on that! Parent involvment, I guess it's okay. - Posted by Student/Alumni

Teachers in 19 States Allowed to Physically Punish Students
As of 2014, nineteen states still allow corporal punishment – spanking and paddling the most common choices – in their public schools. However, some argue that not only are these punishments physically harmful, they also are disproportionately administered to students of color. As a result, House democrats have taken up the issue in a new bill that would ban all forms of corporal punishment nationwide.
