Our school is named in honor of Harvey S. Williams, who was known as a 'lifetime educator' as he served in many positions in various AISD schools. He is quoted as being someone who "believed in young people and often stood up for students' rights". 

The school opened its doors in March of 1977. The building was constructed to last a long-time based on incorporating features to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our students during the educational journey.
