A Day at Williams
Rise & Shine
Students begin arriving to campus, each day an administrator greets students as they get dropped off.
8:00 – 9:40 AM
Students start the day with two morning classes.
9:40 – 10:00 AM
A favorite part of the day for students is snack; warm bagels, muffins and breakfast sandwiches are available in the Student Center allowing for time to recharge, connect, or have a club meeting!
10:05 – 10:25 AM
Most days the community enjoys a mid-morning activity,
usually each week we follow the same rotation:
- Monday — Assembly
- Tuesday — Advisors
- Thursday — Clubs & Student Government
- Friday — Class Meetings or grade-level programming
Mid-day Courses & Lunch
10:30 – 1:15 PM
Students have three more classes in the middle of the day, with a lunch break in-between. A forty-minute lunch block gives students time to study in the HUB or play games outside or in the gym to decompress after eating in the Student Center.
1:20 – 2:20 PM
The Double Block gives faculty the opportunity to engage in larger projects, field trips or lab activities to enrich students learning experience.
2:25 – 3:30 PM
The final period of the day is ninth period, essentially a university-styled office during which students can connect with teachers on homework or to deepen their understanding of coursework. On Wednesdays students enjoy “long ninth” for an hour when many clubs meet.
3:30 – 5:15 PM
Students partake in arts rehearsals or athletic practices or games building strong relationships with fellow cast members and teammates. Williams also offers a complimentary after school program where students are able to study and socialize until their parents pick them up.

My favorite thing about Williams is how involved you can get in the community through sports, clubs, and the ambassador program.
Everyone is involved in Spirit Week and it brings every class together in a fun way. I look forward to every day of spirit week and the events planned around it that help connect you with your classmates and the whole student body.Close Story

The Williams School and all of its programs are open to the point of feeling safe to join with no experience or to join independently.
It feels like no one is excluded from anything, you can join any group and talk with anyone, and the pure closeness coupled with the variety of activities is amazing.Close Story

With each commitment you spend lots of time with a specific group of people and grow very close.
As a three season athlete as well as a member of the dance department my favorite part of extracurricular activities are the close knit families that come along with it.Close Story
Class of 2024
My favorite event at Williams is Spirit Week.
The Williams school community comes together and shows their Blues pride enthusiastically. The school dresses up as well as participates in activities such as the school wide lip sync battle where each grade comes together and creates a lip-sync routine to raise morale.Close Story
Class of 2025
Looking around the room at an all school assembly recently, I realized that I have had a moment of personal connection or bonding with each and every one of the teachers and faculty who surround me.
The school truly feels more like a large family, with some family members who I simply wish I could see more of!Close Story
