The mission of the Williamsport Area School District is to develop responsible citizens through excellence in education.
 
The Williamsport Area School District is situated in the county seat of Lycoming County and encompasses 98 square miles.  With a student population of about 5,100 students, WASD provides the most comprehensive offerings in academic support programs, interventions, course selections, athletics, fine arts programs and school activities in the region.  Student achievement scores rank competitively with regional and state averages.  The community's diverse population also plays an integral role in the dynamics of the school district.
 
WASD is recognized as one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation, and is a regional leader in Career and Technical Education, providing 14 programs with industry-recognized credentials verifying student achievement. 
 
The City of Williamsport is well-known for its role in Little League Baseball, which was conceived in 1939 by resident Carl Stotz.  It has grown to become the world's largest youth organization.  Williamsport is proud to be served by two institutions of higher learning.  Lycoming College is a private, co-educational, four-year college, and the Pennsylvania College of Technology is an affiliate of Penn State University and is one of the state's premier technical colleges.
