The gentlemen were lead by the clinician Anthony Colosimo, Associate Director of The Alexandria Harmonizers. The Harmonizers are consistently a top 5 chorus at the Barbershop International Convention.  Mr. Colosimo is also a chorus teacher in Silver Spring, MD. The gentlemen learned how to sing and harmonize like Barbershop quartets and learned how competitive and fun the genre can be.  They performed a concert at 2:30 PM Saturday with other young men in the Richmond Area and professional Barbershop Quartet singers.  The songs they learned included "Something," by George Harrison of the Beatles.

Students Take Air Force JROTC Course to New Heights Students fly

Eight King William High School students took their Air Force JROTC course to "new heights" on March 10th and 11th.  These cadets, ranging from 9th to 12 grade, flew a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) airplane with an instructor pilot.  Combined, the students racked up eight total flying hours, flew about 180 miles, completed eight take-off and landings, and performed basic flying maneuvers in the flight training area.  This "hands-on" STEM activity literally put the airplane in the students hands and they learned how to make shallow turns, climb, descend, and use the combined flight controls of the yoke (steering control) and rudder pedals.  This experience will further their understanding of flight and hopefully spark an interest in flying.  For as one student said, "That was awesome...I want to become a pilot now more than ever."

King William High School Earns Bronze Award In US News Report

King William High School received a bronze rating in the newly released article in The U.S. News and World Report on the best high schools in the nation.    In total, U.S. News nationally ranked the 4,707 highest-scoring schools as gold, silver or bronze. A high school's position in the numerical rankings, whether it was awarded a medal or whether it was ranked at all was dependent on how high it scored in all three steps of the rankings methodology.

This report reduced the 31,242 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to 19,411 schools, which is the total number of public high schools across the country that had high enough 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2011-2012 school year to be eligible for the rankings.

School Nutrition Employee Appreciation Week -May 6-10, 2013

Please join the Virginia Department of Education and King William County Schools in recognizing the important contributions that school nutrition employees provide to the success of our students.  Celebrate the professional commitments made every school day by school nutrition employees across the Commonwealth.  The importance and nutritional value of school meals are well documented.  For many children, school lunch is the most important and nutrient-rich meal of their day.

Between preparing healthy meals for Virginia’s students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are integral to the success of our students.  To kick off School Nutrition Employee Appreciation Week, Friday, May 3 is designated as School Lunch Superhero Day. The day aims to highlight the ways in which school nutrition professionals make a difference for every child who comes through the cafeteria.  School nutrition employees must balance many roles and follow numerous federal, state, and local regulations to ensure safe and healthy meals are available in schools.  They provide nutrition education to students and use their creativity to make the cafeteria a fun and welcoming place. The new federal nutrition standards for school meals went into effect this school year.  These new standards are intended to ensure that every school lunch provides students a well-balanced meal offering low-fat or fat-free milk, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.  School meals also meet limits on calories, sodium and unhealthy fats.  The professionals in school nutrition have embraced these changes with enthusiasm.

School Nutrition Employee Week is the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in school cafeterias.

February - School Board Appreciation Month

Please join in recognizing members of the School Board of King William County for their dedicated and tireless service to the students of this county.  This year's theme — Student Focused Leadership — reflects the top priority of local school board members as they advocate for public education with local, state, and federal leaders.

As citizen leaders, school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. That job entails an endless string of meetings and school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make.

We greatly appreciate the hard work that our school board members do in making King William County Schools a great place to learn.

KWHS to Recognize Former Coach Brookes The School Board of King William County unanimously approved a request on September 17, 2013, from Michael Commins, Howard Brown, and Scott Moore to name King William High School's football field in honor of Coach Roger G. Brookes. Please join the School Board, administrators, teachers, parents, students and community residents on October 25 during halftime of the home football game between King William and Middlesex as Coach Brookes is honored. He compiled a record as follows:  269 wins, 154 losses, 4 ties, 16 district championships, 4 regional championships, and 1 state championship in 2000.  His teams made the playoffs 23 times, and he was voted coach of the year 16 times during 40 years of coaching high school football in the Commonwealth. He ranks as one of the top 10 coaches with the most wins in Virginia High School League Football History.
All Schools Fully Accredited

All four schools in King William County are FULLY accredited by the Virginia Department of Education. For a school to earn full accreditation, at least 75% of students must pass reading and writing SOL tests, and at least 70% of students must pass mathematics, science and history SOL tests. High schools must also meet a graduation benchmark. King William County is one of 36 divisions in which all schools are fully accredited. (There are 132 school divisions in the Commonwealth.) This accomplishment is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our staff, teachers, students, and parents.
