About The Williams School
Through both intent and design we are a small school. As evidenced by our web site, we are equally committed to providing our children an expansive education. We are an intellectual and caring community of mind, body, and spirit where learning spills out of the classrooms into the hallways, onto the playing fields, and throughout our children's lives as they think, talk, and interact with what they are studying.
We work in close partnership with parents who are, in fact, their children's first and most important teachers. We strive to be a diverse school family united by shared values and the common ideals we hold for children. The individuality of our children enriches our community as whole.
