The Williams School is a nurturing, caring, child-centered community in which the uniqueness of each individual is encouraged and celebrated. Challenging academics are our work standard. Honor before Honors, our motto since our founding in 1927, is our standard for behavior.

We appreciate the support that you give us in so many ways: your volunteer service, your expertise, your talents, and your treasure. And while we celebrate our differences, one characteristic that remains absolutely constant is that "everybody plays." In a small school, each member is necessary and vital, as often we cannot even form a team unless everyone plays. For our students, "everybody plays" helps them stretch their skills and try new experiences, and each student understands his intrinsic value to the whole. For our adult partners, every gift of support makes a HUGE difference in terms of participation. Because we are a small school, each gift truly makes a major impact. Especially when others outside our school consider helping us, it is important to them that we have first supported ourselves. Our answer must be, and truly is, YES!
