Awesome school, fantastic teachers and principle. Kids have a lot of school pride and it shows. Wonderful program for special needs kids. My son has been there 2 years now and has nothing but positive things to say. He went from having no interest in school to having tonsnof interest in after school programs and extra curricular activity. They have tons of programs and clubs as well as college level course for early credit. Couldn't be happier with this h.s..

Willowbrook high School is second to NONE! My youngest of three kids is a Senior this year. All of my children have nothing but positive things to say about their experiences at Willowbrook. My experience as a parent echos thiers. Mr Krause, along with the rest of the administrative staff, know all of the students by name as well as most of the parents. They really take a personal interest in the kids in and out of the school. The teachers are always accessable to the students and parents. The school really prepares the kids for college. I feel lucky to live in such a great district!

I have two daughters at Willowbrook. We have only had positive experiences with the school and most all of the teachers. Dan Kraus is a wonderful principal. He keeps everyone thinking positive and is encouraging to listen to. Of course the renovations being made are great too. I am thankful to live in such a fine school district.

I am now in my junior year of this school, so I believe I have been here long enough to have a good knowledge on what the school is like. At first, in my freshman year, I really did not like it very much, but it all changed the following year when Mr Dan Krause was made the principal. Honestly, he has given Willowbrook a complete 180 degree turnaround. The atmosphere is electrifying and school unity and spirit is prevalent in every corner. The Building the Future renovations may be unsightly right now, but it will all be worth it soon. Mr Krause really is making this school such a great place to be. Thank you, Mr Krause!

I have two children. One graduated and one is a senior. Their favorite teachers were both men. I think male teachers are great role models for teenage boys. Also, I can't say enough about Rich Rentner. The man knows more about the students in school than most of the teachers. He is a good, fair man and every student knows it. When he leaves he will be missed!

I am a student at willowbrook high school. I have encountered a few teachers that show no interest in the students, other than passing them, and I have had teachers that made me want to become a better person. Mrs. Allenspach, my freshman english teacher, made me become a better person. I believe the administration needs to take a deep look at these students and realize there are problems with integrity, that has yet to be addressed.

WB has a 7 year plan to make improvements in and around the school as many things are outdated. First on their list should be air conditioning! So many programs/assemblies we've attended have been horrendous because of the air quality. The teachers we've worked with have all seemed very concerned and interested in the student's interests and the use of Edline has been a real bonus. We have a student who takes special education classes and we have been happy with the staff's ability to make sure they are challenging but not over-stressing our student. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved especially with the sports programs. While no school is perfect we've had mostly good experiences with WB.
