James E. Williams Middle School, Oct 01, 2010
I hate these uniforms and wish we never had to wear them.

Horrible Principal at James E. Williams Middle School, Apr 08, 2010
I too was at the meeting. And, though we were allowed to ask certain questions, our "INPUT" was not requested or tolerated. As a matter of fact, I distinctly remember certain members of the PTA tried to address the cost of uniforms to working families, they were promptly shut down. We were only given a mandatory uniform sheet outlining what was required and where we are required to purchase certain things, but when we asked for a price list, lo & behold that was nowhere to be found. I have requested such a price list several times only to be told that I have to go to the uniform shop for that info. That uniform shop by the way is not even in the same city limits as our school. Very poor judgment, organization, and integration of a school uniform policy.

How can someone say she is doing a fantastic job when she has not improved anything and has only caused stress and controversy among students and parents? The students hate the uniform policy even though Ms. Williams continues to say how excited they are about it. I asked my son if he sees any kids wearing uniforms during the now "optional uniforms" period, and he said not one, except for the kids who have to wear them to do the morning announcements, and they change right after!!! She is not listening and is running the school like a dictator instead of someone who is supposed to be working for us and our children. She should be removed ASAP!

James E. Williams Middle School, Dec 12, 2009
The principal DID call a meeting to discuss uniforms, but did NOT allow parents to question her on them. She allowed us to question the uniform company and the security representative, but cut off questions directly to her. The principal has isolated herself from parental concerns and is attacking a military service member for speaking up and organizing other parents. She even told parents that she would form a parent advisory committee of "parents I can work with." This principal has forced nearly a dozen parents to remove their children and relocate or home school them.

New Year, New Principal, James E. Williams Middle School, Dec 06, 2009
The new principal is doing a fantastic job! Some parents do not want any change at all. The principal called a meeting with parents and teachers to discuss the uniform policy. I was at the meeting and the principal did allow input from the parents. The parents were able to express concerns and ask questions. In fact, the principal decided to put off the uniform requirement until the next school year because of parent concerns, so she is listening to parents.
The "failing school" was Terry Heights Elementary which was the poorest elementary school in the city and it is now closed due to very low enrollment. There is a huge difference in the caliber of students attending Williams and those who attended Terry Heights so the comparison is very unfair. The principal worked tirelessly at Terry Heights to turn things around and the students test scores did improve. Don't make accusations if you don't know the facts.
Williams Middle School is a great school and it is headed in the right direction with the new principal and the new building.

New Year, New Principal :(, Oct 13, 2009
I am very dissapointed in the city's choice to appoint the former principal of a failing school to our James Williams Middle School. The year is already off to a bad start with a Mandate for uniforms without any input from parents. And, when differences of opinions try to be heard, they are shut down by the principal. I am going to look into private school for my children.

James E. Williams Middle School hasn't started yet, but with the completion of a brand new school building and the guidance of a brand new middle school principal, I think things are going to turn around for Williams Middle. Don't count this school out!
