District/School Information

The Williamsburg Independent School District and Williamsburg City Schools was formed in 1909.  Our school setting is unique with one building that house grades K-12.  Presently, the district enrollment is over 800 students (grades PK-12).  Our school is fully accredited by the Kentucky Department of Education and has had accreditation, in some form, with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1927.  Williamsburg High School has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a bronze medal recipient for Top American Public High Schools during the 2007-08, 2008-09, and 2009-10 school years.


Beginning with the Class of 2007, all high school students are asked to follow a district generated planned program.  The class of 2010 is required to follow this planned program.  The planned program requires students to complete one class in each of the four high school years in the four core areas of: reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies in addition to the graduation requirements set forth in the Kentucky Program of Studies.  All students who complete this planned program will suffice the requirements for the Pre-College Curriculum that is recommended by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.  Please contact the Guidance Counselor's office for more information.


Williamsburg High School operates on a modified trimester schedule.  Students can attain up to 7 credits per year.  Students will take 5 classes for approximately 60 minutes/day for a twelve week period.  There are three trimesters in a given year.  

Credits to Graduate

The class of 2010 must attain 24 credits to graduate and complete the Planned Program.  To attain one credit, a student must satisfactorily complete the time requirements listed above in the "schedule" heading and have a passing grade.  Williamsburg High School does offer several ½ credit courses.
