About Williamsburg Preparatory High School
Williamsburg Prep’s goal is to provide students with a rigorous college preparatory education in a supportive small-school setting. The curriculum is rich in math, science, and technology, with a humanities program that synthesizes literature, world history, and current events. Students don’t simply sit in class and hear “facts;” they practice critical thinking and leadership skills by participating in projects that connect the Regents curriculum with the real world.
Students enjoy special access to the facilities and intellectual life of Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus. All Williamsburg Prep students are expected to take college courses before they graduate. These courses are free and transfer as college credit when students graduate. Every member of Williamsburg Prep’s first graduating class in June 2008 was admitted to college.
- Teachers at Williamsburg Prep use SnapGrades that allow students and parents to log in and view regularly updated grades.
- The school received straight As on its 2008 Progress Report, performing in the top tier of New York City public schools.
- As part of their preparations for the Living Environment Regents, freshmen take an overnight trip to the Clearpool Environmental Center in upstate New York and also visit the Bodies Exhibit in Manhattan.
- Students can participate in a rock climbing club.
