High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
T.C. Williams High School is the sole public high school in Alexandria, Virginia, USA. Named for a former superintendent of Alexandria City Public schools who served from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s, it is located near the geographic center of the city, at 3330 King Street. It is referred to informally as T.C. rather than Williams by students, faculty and locals. T.C. currently enrolls about 2,000 students from grades 10-12. Ninth graders attend nearby Minnie Howard Ninth Grade Center and participate in T.C. Williams sports and extracurriculars. T.C. Williams is part of Alexandria City Public Schools. Mel Riddile is the principal. Their school colors are red, white and blue.
T.C. Williams opened in 1965 as Alexandria's third public high school, and became the city's only public senior high school in 1971, serving 11th and 12th graders, with the freshman and sophomores attending the two others, Hammond and George Washington. Currently, T.C. serves 10th through 12th grades, with two middle schools, Francis C. Hammond Middle School, and George Washington Middle School, serving the city's 6th through 8th grade students, while 9th graders go to the Minnie Howard 9th Grade Center.

T.C. Williams remains one of the most diverse schools in Virginia, with a large number of immigrant students in addition to the black and white communities depicted in the movies. The school provides numerous Advanced Placement courses for its students. Every year, dozens of T.C. graduates go on to elite colleges, and T.C. Williams has won numerous statewide academic and scientific competitions.

Moreover, it has been ranked by the 2006 Washington Post and Newsweek Challenge Index as one of the more challenging schools in the nation, with an index of 1.494. T.C. is also known for its nationally and internationally competitive rowing program, which has its own boathouse on the Alexandria bank of the Potomac River. The T.C. Williams School aims on targeting the success of their students. The institution is renowned due to qualities like supportive learning environment, respected and enthusiastic staff and faculty members, and the capability to meet the needs of the community’s wide ranging requirements.
