I like the small class sizes and the extra help available for kids who need it. That way they don't hold the other kids back during classes. All classrooms have the latest technology (Promethean boards) and students have computer time several times a week. This school places a huge emphasis on developing reading skills from K thru 4th grade, and it pays off in all subjects as far as comprehension. My child is in 4th grade and reads at a 5th grade level. Obedience and neatness is enforced well, and there are mostly younger teachers who show a lot of patience and enthusiasm in their methods. Although my children are above-average academically, there is a very good Special Ed program here.

When we first started looking for a small town school we were very impress by this school, but as we got to know the community and the sorrounding's of this community we were very disappointed. The school overall needs to work more on how to control BULLYING. We definitely will be moving.

Up until my family moved to the area, My kids attended over 6 schools. Their ages range from 6 to 10 years old. Since they started in this school we have no urgency to move because my kids absolutely love this school. They also brought their grades up from nearly failing to honor roll because the staff is so determined to help the children. I recommend this school to any parent who is concerned about their child's education and safety.

If I could only use one word it would be supurb! My daughter recieved no help at any of the other schools she attended untill we moved into the Willow School district. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Principal Karen Triezenberg and her staff. The Special Education teachers at Willow are phenominal. The hardest thing my family had to do was leave the area and this school. I have two daughters both in SPED and both flourished at Willow. The staff is truly dedicated and amazing. If I can say nothing else it would be thank you to all at Willow and we miss you all!
