Preparing your child for his or her future

No matter if your child has been in our district since day one in kindergarten, or has transferred from another school district, Williamsport Area School District helps your child discover his or her interests and hone his or her skills. We also help prepare him or her for the next journey toward a career upon graduation.

Willliamsport Area High School continues to build upon a strong curricular foundation of math, English, science, and social studies and affords students opportunities to become involved in many activities. This exposure to various interest areas helps to create a well-rounded individual. Furthermore, WAHS presents your child with many options to try, including adademic, skills/technical, artistic and musical pursuits as your student discovers his or her own career path.

The Road to Self-Discovery

High school is a twisting, turning road that has its share of both smooth riding and rough roads. Students, parents and the school work together to help students navigate the path that’s right for them. Students grow as they go forward in their pursuit of learning—no matter what it is that they learn—or how they learn it. From traditional curriculum coursework, to music, the arts, or hands-on skills training, Williamsport Area High School has it all.

A Supportive Journey

Our teachers and administration have a vested interest in our students, and we will do all that we can to help them succeed. Academic support for children of all aptitudes is readily available. Our guidance department welcomes opportunities to talk with students and parents about planning and preparing for life after graduation, available options, and so much more. We also offer support services for families even if the issue isn’t school related to help children focus on school. If you ever have a question about your child’s school performance, or if you need some advice, a phone call can help you find the answers you need. See our faculty and staff directory.
