We have had nothing but issues with my son's teacher and the administrative staff is more interested in protecting the teacher than the child she is bullying. He has been left for very extended amounts of time in a room unsupervised and they seem to find the outcome of his mischeif during this time
... Read more disturbing and not the fact that a 7 year old has been left alone in a room full of desks with a tool to remove all of the screws and for a period of time long enough for him to decide to do so. The situation there is so grave he has regressed about 2 to 3 years in many development areas and is afraid to be left in a room alone at home. He won't even shut the door when he goes to the bathroom or showers anymore, and if I shut it he will scream out of fear. Read less

Williams is not the worst school by far but it definitely has room for improvement. I am, however, a little dissappointed in the minimum amount of activities/programs offered to the children to partake in. Fundraisers are sometimes last minute so parents aren't given enough time to actively participate.

Williams could be a top notch school, unfortunately the combination of administrative turnover, differing focus areas, teacher stress and burnout, hidden agendas, lack of the depth of quality realtionships in parent/teacher, teacher/teacher, administration/teacher, and confusion of across the board
... Read more district policies negatively impacts a school that could be fantastic. Thank goodness There are some very special staff, community, and parents that keep Williams going in a positive direction. I struggle with a 3 star because of the ongoing problems, so have to give it a 2 star rating. Read less
