    The Teachers are absolutely Awesome! My son has not only received an education from school. He is given understanding care encouragement and the support to always try his best and succeed. His teachers have gone over and beyond throughout the years and made his school experience extremely positive.

    We debated about sending our child to private school but so far the kindergarten program at Williams has been very satisfying. Our child is reading short books writing sentences and loves to be at school every day. The current principal has been with the school for a long time as a teacher and is doing a great job as principal. You can tell he genuinely cares about the school and the well being of the children.

    Williams Ave. is a school that cares about the students. They work well with the children to make sure they do their best. Keep up the good work Williams staff and parents. Without the parents input and hard work alot of the students would have a harder time making it.
