Williamson High School traces its history to 1916, first as a school serving grades one through seven, and then as a high school serving the Maysville community beginning in 1958. Its mission is to graduate students who love learning, take pride in community and pursue their full potential.

In fulfilling its vision of preparing students to graduate and enter the workforce or college as literate, responsible and productive citizens, the school is home to Mobile County’s Maritime, Engineering and Entrepreneurship Signature Academy.

The Maritime Academy encourages students to explore and pursue careers in the maritime industry of welding, multi-craft and electrical fields of study. Students will build relevant skills for the industry and will have multiple opportunities to participate in field trips, job shadowing and internships that will equip them for the workforce.

The Engineering and Technology Academy introduces students to foundational principles of engineering and technological literacy and provides them with opportunities to gain experience with general engineering design and application.

The Entrepreneurship Academy prepares students for the accelerated changes taking place in the competitive business world, taking advantage of a partnership with the Future Business Leaders of America as an integral part of classroom instruction. Clusters within the academy prepare students for careers in hospitality and tourism (including the culinary arts), cosmetology, music performance and the military (JROTC).
