Williamston High School is one of the four buildings that make up Williamston Community Schools. Its current principal and assistant principal are Dr. Delp and Mr. Armour, respectively. The most recent data available claims 632 students attend Williamston High School. Although, this number has probably gone up as of the 2021 - 2022 school year due to an unexpected surge in enrollment mere weeks before the school year started. Williamston High School is a 9th-12th grade school. Location wise, Williamston High School is right next to the Williamston Middle School, separated by a swamp.

Williamston High School was built in 1991, and has received many additions and renovations over the years despite being a relatively new building. The current building is the 3rd structure built to serve the purpose as the Williamston High School in the WCS district. Around 1996, a minor expansion was made which included the addition of the 4 classrooms at the end of the B-hall and D-hall. In 2007, a major expansion of over 76,000 square feet took place, which included the addition of the entire F-hallway and a new gymnasium.

During the summer of 2019, Williamston High School was the first building to have its main entrance upgraded as a part of the district's Secure Entrance Project. This included the addition of a main office entrance at the front of the school, as well key-card based security for all building entrances. These renovations cost $290,000.
