- Williams High School is a secondary school serving grades nine and ten. It is part of the Plano Independent School District, which uses an unconventional high school system in which students in grades nine and ten attend one of five high schools. Students in grades eleven and twelve attend senior high schools. Williams High School feeds into Plano East Senior High School.
- History: Virtually a landmark in PISD, Williams High School first served as Plano High School when it was built in 1961. That year the school included grades 8 through 12. The following school year, the campus became a grade 9 through 12 school. Two years later, Williams became a grade 10 through 12 facility. A new senior high school was completed in 1975.
- Since its inception, Williams High School has experienced several renovations and additions. In 1961, $911,590 was paid to Avery Mays Construction Co. In 1970, an additional $1,100.000 went to KAS Construction Co. in an attempt to accommodate increased numbers. $279,968 went to Corgan Associates in 1975. JPJ Architects was awarded a construction contract in the amount of $6,116,400 in 1989. Williams High School underwent a $12,634,480 renovation completed July 2003. Currently, Williams is in the middle of another addition as the school population continues to increase. The 40,000 square foot, two-story Science Addition will contain 12 science laboratories accompanied by restrooms and storage areas. At a cost of $6,630,343., the new addition to Williams High School is scheduled for completion August 2006.
- T. H. Williams, principal from 1961-1968, came to the district in 1936 as a math instructor and coach in the old Plano High School (now the Cox Building). He was head coach from 1943 to 1953, leading his teams to several district and state titles. A new Plano High School was built on 17th street in 1961 at a cost of $993,590. This campus was renamed T. H. Williams High School when the new Plano Senior High opened in 1975. Thomas Howard â€œBillâ€ Williams (1902-1992) was honored as a teacher, coach, and principal who had given almost five decades of service to educating youths of Collin County.

Looking at the previous reviews the school must have changed a lot, because it is amazing! The kids all get along for the most part, the smaller setting make it easier to do. Not your typical cliques. Band is an option, an the new this year band teacher is phenomenal! So far all teachers are awesome I couldn't be happier. I was worried with what kInd had heard about the school, but it must be people with negative issues or something. So glad we moved here! My daughter is advance in everything and the school keeps up with that.

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

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.

There are many factors which come into play in determining the quality of your child's education, but one thing that many parents overlook is student-teacher ratio.

Does your child struggle to keep up in school? Is he performing well in one subject but not in another? If you answered "Yes" to either of these questions, you may want to consider hiring a private tutor.
