William's Community School is built on the strong philosophical belief that, given the right supports, every child can thrive. We are committed to ensuring a challenging and accepting educational environment with a strong emphasis on building lasting relationships. We strive to provide a sense of safety, community and family to students and parents by fostering and developing a successful partnership. At William's Community School, we encourage students to develop caring attitudes and respect towards themselves, other children, adults, their school and their environment. We recognize each child's individuality and provide differentiated teaching to meet individual needs and capitalize on unique learning styles. We offer a broad, balanced, appropriate curriculum that encourages optimal social, emotional, and academic development. Our classrooms and facility grounds provide a peaceful atmosphere to support concentration and encourage an orderly environment.

We are unique in that we provide all therapies to children in-house, allowing for families to help their children receive education and services under one roof instead traveling to different locations for these services. We are also the first school in the Austin area to be designed specifically for those with sensory needs, and are proud to have sensory-friendly design features to provide a positive learning environment for our students. The CDC now estimates that 1/68 children is diagnosed with autism, and we want to help them have the personalized education they deserve. WCS is a thriving school that serves the growing number of children with autism and other developmental learning needs in the Austin area. Along with the hardships of everyday living, families are overwhelmed by the costs of educating and caring for these special children. The need for a school tailored for children with special needs is more important than ever. WCS provides a wonderful learning environment but we need your help! This year our goal is to raise $40,000 through Amplify - please consider supporting our kids and school!
