Welcome to Williams Middle School!

Welcome to the Williams Middle School web site. Williams is a grade 6 through 8 public middle school in Longmeadow Massachusetts, a suburb of Springfield. We are committed to building relationships with our students to help foster a successful transition from childhood to early adolescence. We strive to create an environment for learning that develops a spirit of inquiry, encourages personal excellence, validates respectful and responsible choices and fosters self-esteem. Our staff is exceptional and offers a strong, diverse curriculum that recognizes and accommodates individual learning styles. Our efforts have resulted in being named a Commonwealth of Massachusetts Compass School for exemplary improvement efforts. Additionally, in 2001, the Mass Insight Education designated Williams as a Vanguard School.

We offer the traditional academic subjects of language arts, reading, mathematics, science, and social studies along with an exploratory program, which includes art, music, technology education, health and physical education. All classes are heterogeneously grouped with the exception of grade 7 and 8 mathematics. A full year of high school french or spanish is taught in grades 7 and 8. Our outstanding performing arts program includes men's and women's chorus, mixed choruses for grade 6, orchestra, band, and jazz band. Academic, exploratory and performing arts classes take place during a seven-block school day.

While we currently offer an exceptional variety of engaging curriculum and a top notch exploratory and arts programs, we continue to look for areas in which to grow. We will continue to grow professionally in the area of differentiating instruction and hope to continue to gather and use data to better inform what we do and how we do it. We are extremely fortunate to have students, families and a community who deeply value education.
