    Williamsburg Elementary is a rural, community school in the southeastern corner of Rockingham County.  There are approximately 501 students in grades kindergarten through fifth.  In addition, there is one pre-school classroom funded by Rockingham County Schools.  Also housed in the building is one Head Start classroom.
     
    As a Title I school, Williamsburg receives additional federal funds to provide extra instructional support for the students. This funding makes it possible to reduce class size in many of the grade levels which helps the students receive more individualized assistance.
     
    When the new building opened in 2003, personnel from many different schools came together to form the new Williamsburg School. These dedicated, well-qualified individuals work together to provide a stable learning environment for the children of Williamsburg School.
