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.
