HCC Stafford TV broadcasts interview with Ms. Lisa Williams
Ms. Williams discusses how the school continued to provide engaging learning during the Covid-19 crisis. Within a week after the local quarantine started, the school provided Chromebooks and materials to each student. The teachers used Microsoft Teams and virtually conducted classes and had face-to-face time with each student on a daily basis. Click the link to see the full interview: https://youtu.be/Xbzcd7CzFX0
The Williams School is exploring expansion with online learning
Due to success of our online teaching sessions during the Covid-19 crisis, in addition to offering classes at school for students, The Williams School is exploring the option of offering families the choice of full-time at home, online-based learning for their children. We would continue to meet students’ needs by providing engaging one-on-one learning with each student. Online learning students will have daily virtual face time with their teacher. The online teacher will provide feedback, ask and answer questions, and interact through a virtual classroom, encouraging students to learn and succeed to their greatest potential.
Providing a safe learning environment...
Our goal is to provide a safe, appropriate learning environment for all students and staff. Using the guidelines recommended by national, state and local agencies to reduce the spread of Covid-19, The Williams School will be implementing steps such as the use of face masks, social distancing, frequent handwashing, and frequently disinfecting classrooms and common areas.
The Williams School Mission Statement
The Williams School believes that "all children can learn." Our mission is to give students with reading and other learning differences opportunities to follow their curiosity, to think creatively and to work both independently and collaboratively. Students grow to fulfill their greatest potential and are challenged and continuously assessed along their journey. Students feel safe, secure, loved, and respected in an intimate, personalized learning environment which fits each student's needs. We celebrate diversity and instill integrity, compassion, and confidence.
THE WILLIAMS SCHOOL
In 2004, Mrs. Williams saw that her son, Max, seemed to be falling through the cracks in the traditional classroom setting. She knew that there had to be a better way to help her son learn and succeed in school. With the help of a friend, The Williams School was born. The school began with three students that had various diagnoses of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD and anxiety disorders. We have now grown into a place where kids can learn where they are academically and can be eased (and sometimes pushed) into where they "need" to be and beyond. In the past 14 years, we have had many students attend colleges and universities all over the United States, and some, after graduation from college, continue with Master degrees and beyond. Mrs. Williams's son, Max, is a 2020 graduate of Austin College in Sherman, with a BA degree in Communications/ Media Studies. He will begin his teaching career at The Williams School in the fall of 2020. The Williams School continues to assist students in all areas of their academic lives and we look forward to sharing many more success stories.

What our parents have to say...
We were like a sinking ship out at sea and The Williams School was our guiding light promising us hope and safety. With deepest gratitude to them, our ship is now sailing.
Our son, Sebastian, has learning differences. I am a firm believer when there is one obvious difference there are assorted other less obvious problems. We started recognizing Sebastian’s developmental differences when he was still a baby. He received an assortment of therapies, speech, O.T., P.T., etc. We worked hard to get him on board with his peers. He did a great job of compensating. With lots of hard work, determination and a lot of stress, Sebastian appeared to be excelling in public education. We were pleased. The modifications that had been set in place for him were never even utilized. We thought he’d outgrown his differences.
And then came fourth grade… - Susan Biondi
My daughter has dyslexia. For years special education program administrators told me that her problems weren't severe enough to warrant any real help, and when modifications were put in place, overworked teachers complained that they didn't have the time to abide by those modifications. My daughter believed she couldn't learn. She hated school, and made every excuse to avoid going to school. The public school system was failing my child, and I was at my wits end. Then i came across two teachers that amazed me with their love of teaching and their dedication to all children. This school has been a Godsend. The change in my daughter is amazing. She loves to read, loves to learn, and loves to go to school each and every day. What else can a parent ask for? I am so happy The Williams School came into our lives! - D. Johnson
I brought my son to this wonderful school after failing 9th grade at a public school. He hated school and completely shut down. I took him out of that school and registered him at The Williams School. He is now making all A's and B's and honestly loves school! He can't wait for summer to end to get back to school! I am so grateful for this school and Ms. Lisa and all the staff involved!- Carol Brown
